A self-contained RISC OS module providing a comprehensive set of extensions to ARM BBC BASIC
Existing BASIC keywords run at their legendary speed. New keywords are hand-written in machine code and run almost as fast as BASIC itself.
Just a single *command is needed at the start of a program to use any of the Basalt extensions, with no special development environment or linking.
The extensions are BASIC and use legal and documented methods, together with a detailed knowledge of how BASIC works.
Compact multi-tasking applications use the RISC OS Toolbox with an object-oriented syntax and an event-controlled program model.
A skeleton application makes getting started a doddle. Interfaces are designed with the standard RISC OS tools.
Dynamic memory, [Structures], Long strings, Pointers, Dates, Constants, Private variables - all asked for over the years - Basalt can do them.
A comprehensive StrongHelp manual provides detailed information about all aspects of Basalt.
