bootBASIC_32bit is an implementation of bootBASIC for macOS by @taisukef https://fukuno.jig.jp/2729 Use this command line on macOS: sh c.sh see also original README of bootBASIC _ _ ______ ___ _____ _____ _____ | | | | | ___ \/ _ \ / ___|_ _/ __ \ | |__ ___ ___ | |_| |_/ / /_\ \\ `--. | | | / \/ | '_ \ / _ \ / _ \| __| ___ \ _ | `--. \ | | | | | |_) | (_) | (_) | |_| |_/ / | | |/\__/ /_| |_| \__/\ |_.__/ \___/ \___/ \__\____/\_| |_/\____/ \___/ \____/ bootBASIC interpreter in 512 bytes (boot sector or COM file) by Oscar Toledo G. Jul/22/2019 http://nanochess.org https://github.com/nanochess This is an integer BASIC language interpreter. It's compatible with the 8088 processor (the original IBM PC). If you want to assemble it, you must download the Netwide Assembler (nasm) from www.nasm.us Use this command line: nasm -f bin basic.asm -Dcom_file=1 -o basic.com nasm -f bin basic.asm -Dcom_file=0 -o basic.img Tested with VirtualBox for Mac OS X running Windows XP running this interpreter, it also works with DosBox and probably with qemu: qemu-system-x86_64 -fda basic.img Enjoy it! _ _ _ __ __ _ | | | |___ ___ _ _( )___ | \/ |__ _ _ _ _ _ __ _| | | |_| (_-</ -_) '_|/(_-< | |\/| / _` | ' \ || / _` | | \___//__/\___|_| /__/ |_| |_\__,_|_||_\_,_\__,_|_| Line entry is done with keyboard, finish the line with Enter. Only 19 characters per line as maximum. Backspace can be used, don't be fooled by the fact that screen isn't deleted (it's all right in the buffer). All statements must be in lowercase. Line numbers can be 1 to 999. 26 variables are available (a-z) Numbers (0-65535) can be entered and display as unsigned. To enter new program lines: 10 print "Hello, world!" To erase program lines: 10 To test statements directly (interactive syntax): print "Hello, world!" To erase the current program: new To run the current program: run To list the current program: list To exit to command-line: system Statements: var=expr Assign expr value to var (a-z) print expr Print expression value, new line print expr; Print expression value, continue print "hello" Print string, new line print "hello"; Print string, continue input var Input value into variable (a-z) goto expr Goto to indicated line in program if expr1 goto expr2 If expr1 is non-zero then go to line, else go to following line. Examples of if: if c-5 goto 20 If c isn't 5, go to line 20 Expressions: The operators +, -, / and * are available with common precedence rules and signed operation. You can also use parentheses: 5+6*(10/2) Variables and numbers can be used in expressions. Sample program (counting 1 to 10): 10 a=1 20 print a 30 a=a+1 40 if a-11 goto 20 Sample program (Pascal's triangle, each number is the sum of the two over it): 10 input n 20 i=1 30 c=1 40 j=0 50 t=n-i 60 if j-t goto 80 70 goto 110 80 print " "; 90 j=j+1 100 goto 50 110 k=1 120 if k-i-1 goto 140 130 goto 190 140 print c; 150 c=c*(i-k)/k 160 print " "; 170 k=k+1 180 goto 120 190 print 200 i=i+1 210 if i-n-1 goto 30 >> ATTENTION << Do you would like more details on the inner workings?
