John,

May I vocalize some BP-ers' invitation for you to re-join the BASIC section of retrogamecoding dot org? I promised them to do that.

I think with a pinch of good humor added to your attitude towards you new (old) co-forumers, you can still manage very well there. :)

You know this challenge was originally directed at Script Basic, I confess now that I worked up my boring example (probably not a great example of SmallBASIC) and Peter his, could someone offer a good representative one of Script Basic code? Maybe AlyssonR or (old) Mike?

Heck! I wouldn't mind seeing new Mike's version either! :) maybe a GUI sample, I would think it actually useful and not waste of time.

And D, can SpecBas do this?

"Inquiring minds want to know."

Script BASIC has directory walking built into the syntax of the language.

RTFM


AlyssonR will NOT be entering into the debate over there ... I think it would be fair to say that I'm not bothering with them at all.

Hell's bells, I only joined in order to access John'a thread on COM.

I think Aurel missed his calling. He should be hosting a geek show with a Cramer Mad Money twist.

Mark (B+) needs to come up for air. It would be embarrassing to find him face down in a toddlers pool.  :-\

Rather than posting forum farts and challenging each other to their potency, the All BASIC wiki is a resource to document and share concepts that may improve the BASIC language in general.

"Script Basic was finished even way back when it first appeared..."(see attachment)

2001 or 2002? I forget, it was done deal back then, no new development needed.

Doesn't that make it dead according to Tomaaz opinion, sorry I still say it's an opinion?

Script BASIC was released in 2001 as an embeddable scripting engine. Scriba the console interpreter was created as an example of how to use the language API as was the web server to show multi-tbreading. Why should I try to meet the needs of hobbyist with a demo program?

RetroB needs to declare they're a hobby group and profressional programmers stay away as they are spoiling the fun.

The current challenge going on at RetroB is being able to walk away with your reputation intact.

That's a non-starter in the first place.

The kids' bickering ruins their reputations.

There are only 3 BASIC languages I will spend any time with or contribute code for.

  • Script BASIC
  • Oxygen Basic
  • VB6

Every other language I work with is non-BASIC. (C, PHP, JavaScript)
