An interesting quote about ScriptBasic
« on: 11. January 2019, 10:45:24 »
Quote
There are a lot of languages that run on the JVM, even such crap as ScriptBasic.

But the most interesting fact about it is that the author of these words is... Peter Verhas, the author of ScriptBasic himself!

He's also the author of recent ScriptBasic for Java. Probably he knows better the merits and drawbacks of his latest opus as compared to "classic" Script BASIC that runs natively under Windows, all sorts of Linuxes, and macOS, both 32 and 64 bits. ;)

It sounds more like Even such a crappy language like ScriptBasic can be implemented for and run on JVM. I'm pretty sure he knows the difference between a language as a concept and its implementation.  ;)

To me, it sounds more like Even such a crappy language like BASIC can be implemented ... given his ScriptBasic effort was sortof a stake put on the wrong horse (re. Python).

Secondly, Peter's English has never been his strongest point. ;)

Yet generally, the article raises many questions I used to ponder when thinking of FBSL's future. They say "great minds think alike"...  8) ;D

After all, I think implementing an interpreter in another interpreter was an ill idea in the first place.
