Basinc Minor update, Version 1.72

This is a minor update for basinc. It fixes one bug and adds a new feature.

This package needs main basinc 1.70 pre-installed on your system. Just overwrite old basinc.exe with this new executable file.

1.70 -> 1.72
Added: -dumptxt commandline parameter. Extracts and saves BASIC portion of the program. Usage: basinc <filename> -dumptxt
Added: 4x,5x,6x font sizes for hi-dpi non-zoomed screens.
Fixed: variables with 90ish numbers like a91, b95 weren’t properly tokenized.

BasinC Version 1.7

Here is a better basinc 1.7. Again, this is NOT alpha. Please update your basinC.

Download BasinC V1.7 (~3.5MB zip file)

Do not merge old basinc folder with this one. Create a clean folder for this version to work.

If you desperately need your old preferences, just rename your old basin.ini file as basinC.ini and copy it into new basinc 1.7 folder. Basinc will upgrade your ini file as it exits. Some of your preferences may be lost in the process.


// BasinC v1.7 20.11.2017

// Added new toolbar buttons
// Added toggle breakpoint navigation buttons (see view menu)
// Added auto backup feature. Basinc saves your work in the background every 3 minutes.
// it keeps 10 copies going back up to 30 minutes in /autoback folder.
// To turn this feature off, use: Options > Filing > Auto Backup
// Changed – Basinc now requires basinC.bin and basinC.ini rather than old basin.ini.

BasinC 1.7a


This release is an untested alpha release (ok, actually, every basin release might be marked as Alpha).

Not worth for 1.7 glory, you may see some icons missing and some functionalities reduced because I planned to make them better, yet failed to complete all the work. Basinc demands more time that I don’t have.

The project is not abandoned. V1.7 will hit the sinclair basic scene someday in the future 😀

btw. I can accept fancier toolbar icons. Comment or email me if you are interested.
