Release of RC Basic
« on: April 06, 2016, 03:48:41 pm »
I quote this from the allbasic forum:

I know I haven't been online in a while but I have been busy improving RC Basic.  I have fixed alot of bugs and added new features as well as finally finishing the android port.  I have also changed the website to a wordpress site that is way more appealing than the ugliness that was the old orange and brown site.  RC Basic is available for download at www.rcbasic.com

Thanks for the announcement Cybermonkey.  I finally got accepted onto this forum.  After reading through a lot of the post on this forum I see that alot of members from bp are here.  I know I stopped posting for a long time and a lot of people thought I had abandoned RC BASIC entirely but I was so caught up in fixing a lot of stuff from my 1.0 release. Thanks to everyone from bp who gave me feedback, without it this release would not have been possible.

You are welcome and thanks for your post.
I just downloaded your BASIC and it's really great. In which language do you develop? (Nice you took SDL2 for the "media" part).
I am also curious about the editor; in which programming language is it coded? (I think it uses wxWidgets according to the DLLs).

I used C++ for the code editor and the language.  The editor uses wxwidgets and the runtime uses SDL and Libtheora for its video playback functions. I will be releasing the source code by the end of this week. I have been trying to find a non restrictive license to release it under.  I hate GPL as it seems to take away more freedoms than it gives.

I released my open source software under the zlib license (same as SDL2). It's IMHO the most liberal license out there.

I think that's the license I am going to use as well. I will go on and upload it when I get off work tonight.

I finally got a github page up and uploaded the source code.  You can get it at https://github.com/n00b87/RC-BASIC.
I decided on the MIT License.  It is basically the same as the zlib license and github already had a template for it.

I wish I had the time or I would put a C BASIC face on your C code. It could be the first C BASIC BASIC.

I hope that my code will actually be readable to other people. I'm so used to working on my own stuff alone that I don't even have comments in it.  I am going to try to clean it up eventually so it will be easily modified. I know they probably teach better coding practices in college but I just mainly learned from online tutorials.

C BASIC's job is to make C look more like BASIC. It doesn't judge what it's putting a mask on.

The C BASIC Project would be honored to use your BASIC as a development example of masking a C program look like BASIC. If you're interested in giving that a shot, please join us on the forum.

That sounds pretty cool. I'm on the forums over there.

Hi n00b,

Nice dialect. I can learn a lot to make a cross-platform editor from your code with wx.

I found a bug with negative calculation, this line crashes the compiler:
Code: [Select]
print -1 + 2
Best
