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.

  1. I know it has been a while, but there’s a bug when you try to put a REM statement immediately after a THEN, which is accepted in FUSE in 128K modes.

    E.g.: 1040 IF x=100 THEN REM bla bla bla
