Linux is a free open source operating system which include a lot of free softwares. It includes a classic basic interpreter known as Blassic which allows us to create and execute small programs.
Here I am sharing a Windows version of Blassic which you can use to create programs inside Windows!
A small excerpt from the project site (blassic.org) is given below :
Blassic is a classic Basic interpreter. The line numbers are mandatory, and it has PEEK & POKE. The main goal is to execute programs written in old interpreters, even those that use peculiar control flow constructs or automodifiable code. However, it can be used as a scripting language, and has some not-so-classic instructions. It has graphics modes that are compatible with some classic systems and user defined.
