Programming

+ - Scripting in Commodore BASIC in Windows/Linux-> 1

SomeoneGotMyNick writes "Someone with a lot of time on their hands (or more nostalgic than I am), had created a scripting language based on Commodore BASIC for Mac OSX and recently finished a version that works on Windows and Linux. You can pass text versions of Basic programs as a parameter to the program. I found it odd that it took 1.8MB of source code to compile to an interpreter that used to fit in 8K of ROM space. If this ever becomes very popular, how long will it be before we see Obfuscated CBM Basic contests?"
