Is the AppImage approach the best option for distributing BASICs on Linux? For those who are not familiar with the format - an AppImage file is a single executable file that contains the program itself together with all the dependencies. You simply download the file and run it. No installation, compilation, configuration or chasing dependencies. I would love to see, for example, ScripBasic distributed in this format. What do you think?

The whole idea of "this thing" is to work everywhere. Do you mean BaCon together with a compiler, C and GTK libraries etc. in one file? The file would be probably massive, but yes - that would be easy to use.

You can use different compilers with BaCon, it doesn't have to be GCC.
