Interactive mode

SmallBASIC implementations: 


I've been trying to run smallbasic in interactive mode (on Ubuntu/Mint installations), but somehow haven't succeeded. I've built my smallbasic from the sources provided at the download section after applying the "linux console trick" as described somewhere on this page and - besides of the mentioned interactive mode - it seems to work just fine. Are there any known issues with interactive mode?

Damn Small Linux

SmallBASIC implementations: 

Hi, I downloaded SmallBasic and could compile without problem in Damn Small Linux. However, Input data from console doesn't work. When the code reaches an INPUT statement, the interpreter doesn't respond to key pressing. The only way to get out of that point is through Ctrl-c. After stoping the interpreter, the cursor dissappears though bash still shows what you type.

Seems to be a problem with the standard input. But I don't really know.

Any idea? Maybe shoud compile with a particular option?

Thank you.

make svga not working

SmallBASIC implementations: 

Hi Chris,

I've successfully compiled sbasic for unix console with framebuffer support but I can't do it with svga. The 'make svga' command is just ignored. I've looked at './configure --help' output but I've found nothing there. Please tell me what you think.

Thank you for SmallBasic!
