Tiny BASIC revisited

Liberty BASIC comes with an implementation of Tiny BASIC which is extremely similar to the BASIC that came with the old Radio Shack TRS-80.  Remember that computer?  Some of us do.  :-)

This is a very limited version of BASIC, but it has some strengths.

  • Simplicity - Not much to learn
  • Interpreted - This is an interactive interpreter
  • Source code - You can modify the language
So, since Tiny BASIC can be modified by pretty much anyone who knows a little BASIC, I am starting a series where I will extend the language and show how to do it.

First we will focus on graphics!  More to come so stay tuned!
