Reply to post: BBC BASIC today

Roughly 30 years after its birth at UK's Acorn Computers, RISC OS 5 is going open source



As far as BBC BASIC remaining "fresh and relevant" is concerned, both 'BBC BASIC for Windows' and 'BBC BASIC for SDL 2.0' (for Windows, Linux, MacOS, Raspbian, Android and iOS) have been greatly extended compared with the version that comes with RISC OS. They include features such as named data structures, private (static) variables, unlimited-length strings, event interrupts, additional data types, indirect procedure and function calls etc.
