BASIC!

BASIC!


RFO BASIC! is a dialect of Dartmouth Basic that allows you to write and run programs directly on your Android device.

There is a 200+ page manual available in pdf and docx format.

In addition to the traditional Basic features, your have access to:

Graphics (with Multi-touch),
Build User Interfaces with HTML and JavaScript,
SQL,
GPS,
Device Sensors,
Music Play,
Text to Speech,
Voice Recognition,
Sound Pools,
Audio Recording,
Tone Generation,
Camera,
Data Structures such as:Array/List/Stack/Bundle
Internet Browsing,
Text and Byte file I/O,
Encryption,
User defined functions,
FTP Client,
TCP/IP Client and Server Sockets,
Bluetooth,
Send and Receive SMS Messages,
Send Emails,
Make a phone call,
Superuser access

BASIC! programs may be packaged 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!.

The install package includes over three dozen BASIC! source code files that explain and demonstrate the implementation details of this dialect.

BASIC! is being continuously improved. Many of the improvements have come from user requests. Also, since BASIC! is open source, others have begun on the code. Join the BASIC! forum and become part of the development team.

Permissions: This application asks for many permissions. None of permissions are exercised by BASIC! on its own. They are only exercised if you, the BASIC! programmer, writes a program that exercises them. For example, BASIC! will never intercept a SMS message unless you use the SMS commands in a program that you write.

Recent changes:
It's been a while since the last release, and we've been busy.
- New flood-fill for bitmapped graphics.
- Hardware-accelerated graphics option.
- Improved soft keyboard management.
- Long-awaited ENCODE$() and DECODE$().
- Improved execution speed and reduced power usage.
- The new features in v01.87 brought in some bugs. We've fixed those.

It's more Profound than Basic ..and barely recognizable as any kind of Dartmouth derivitive. This app employs numerous advantages and tricks found across various flavors in Basic's evolution. And then it accomodates whatever syntactical contortion is required to allow programmers access to nearly all android functions and services. Documentation is excellent. Lots of sample code + user shared apps. Compiles to apk, why use c stuff? User forum is active & is very good resource. Dev is responsive & actively improving app. Incredible.
