Description

Basic interpreter inspired by QBasic that allows development of GUI programs in addition to CLI programs. The author has discontinued the development of the OS/2 version, but provides a fully functional version of the last beta as a free download and states on his download page that it is now free even though the documentation talks about shareware payment.
