Take a class. Read a book. Don't expect computers to be simple, because
they are not.

The beta-test team will be proud of me. I can make NewBasic KR-07 on
The code to do so is available from:
It's console.zip at the bottom. Unzip this into /NDO with -d, and run
console.bas. Try typing random gibberish into the window and pressing
return several times. After some iterations it'll fall over. This seems to
be due to REDIM PRESERVE'ing a string array several times. The code above
is actually the *stable* version; an alternate algorithm, which I no
longer have, alas, would KR-07 every time.
Another bug: NewBasic does not test to see if a file is open before
writing to it. This means that if you open a .BAS file in, say, TextEdit
and then save it from NewBasic then Really Bad Things happen. The file
gets filled with gibberish. If you save twice, then you lose both the main
file and the backup. I had to write the Terminal component of the above
file twice because of this.
Suspicious happenings: as I use the builder, delays start happening.
Strange pauses appear when I save or run, which gradually get longer and
longer until the machine either locks up completely or produces
UI issues: keyboard shortcuts in the main builder window (the one with the
menus in it) don't work from the editor. So, you can't use CTRL+S to save
or ALT+R to run. You have to manually push the mouse over and navigate the
menu. It's highly annoying. Also, the editor window could really use an
Oh, yes, and NewBasic programmers may (or may not) be interested in the
Terminal module in the file above. This provides a simple scrolling
console window into which a program can write text, and retrieve
characters from the user. All nicely modularised (I do like the dynamic
