RFO BASIC! is a dialect of Dartmouth Basic that allows you to write and run programs directly on your Android device. In addition to the traditional Basic features, your have access to:
Graphics (with Multi-touch),
Data Structures such as:Array/List/Stack/Bundle
Text and Byte file I/O,
User defined functions,
TCP/IP Client and Server Sockets,
Send SMS Messages,
Make a phone call,
BASIC! programs may be complied into applications.There are two processes provided for this. One process generates a home screen shortcut but requires BASIC! installed to run. The other process generates a stand alone application that does not need BASIC! installed. The resulting application can be offered on the Android Market.
All of the features of BASIC! are documented in the manual, De Re BASIC!, which is currently over 200 pages in size.
The install package include almost three dozen BASIC! source code files that explain and demonstrate the implementation details of this dialect.
BASIC! is being continuously improved. New releases have come at an average of one per week. Many of the improvements have come from user requests. Join the BASIC! forum and become part of the development team.
