I noticed several threads concerning source for a tiny BASIC. There are sources (some open source) listed here: http://www.nicholson.com/rhn/basic/

Something tells me that a classic MacOS app would be a difficult port to the Propeller. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Very true, but half way down the page is other systems with source code including 6502 and 68000. I am looking a few of them over for ideas.

Rock on. I'm still a wee bit suspicious of any existing BASICs for these systems, as they may well be founded on the outdated programming model BASIC too often encourages. (I love my BASIC Stamp, but I know Dijkstra spins in his grave every time I'm forced to use GOTO.)

I will definitely play with anything you cook up, though. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

My "coco simulator" (not really, just a stunt) includes a full tiny basic implementation in Spin.

Here are two versions of micro-basic.
One is in C, the other in Z80 assembly.

There is already an integer-only minimal basic that someone did for the Propeller in SPIN shortly after the Propeller was released.

I don't have the forum link, but I reposted it some time ago.

Yeah I remember seeing that link on here too. (and again when you reposted it months later)

I though it was pretty impressive.
It didn't really have many uses with its limits. (Maybe a Save and Load feature would be nice?)
But it shows the tip of the iceberg on what can be done.
