Fast

Existing BASIC keywords run at their legendary speed. New keywords are written in hand-crafted machine code and run almost as fast as BASIC itself.

Simple

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.

Legal

The extensions are BASIC and use legal and documented methods, together with a detailed knowledge of how BASIC works.

Easy

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 simple. Interfaces are designed with the standard RISC OS tools.
