BASIC-256 is a simple BASIC IDE that allows young children to learn to program. It was written in response to David Brin's article, "Why Johnny Can't Code," in which he bemoans the lack of a simple, line-oriented programming language for children that runs on modern computers. It features a byte-code compiler and interpreter, a debugger, easy to use graphical and text output, and an editor.
FreeBASIC is a self-hosting 32-bit BASIC compiler. It makes use of the GNU binutils programming tools and can produce console and GUI executables, and dynamic and static libraries. It fully supports the use of C libraries and has partial C++ library support. It supports a C style preprocessor that is capable of multi-line macros, conditional compilation, and file inclusion. When used in its "QB" language mode, it provides a high level of support for programs written for QuickBASIC.
Google Hacks is a compilation of carefully crafted Google searches that expose novel functionality from Google's search and map services. For example, you can use it to view a timeline of your search results, view a map, search for music, search for books, and perform many other specific kinds of searches.
GNU/Liberty Basic Compiler Collection (GLBCC) is a suite of tools that allow Liberty Basic source code to be compiled directly to executable programs. It leverages greatly off of the GNU Compiler Collection, which allows it to run both on Windows and Linux, while also having the ability to generate both Linux and Windows executables on Linux via the Mingw cross compiler. The suite also includes a frontend program that has both a GUI and CLI to provide a simple environment to compile Liberty Basic code.
Lemick is a programming language similar to traditional Basic implementations but with all the attributes of the modern programming tool. Major design features include a source to bytecode compiler and bytecode to object code compiler, platform-independence of the compiled code (through the use of VM bytecode), native support of concurrent and distributed programming (multi- threading and distributed multi-threading), rendezvous for message passing, replicas and ultra-weak consistency model for shared memory simulation, advanced exception handling mechanism including distributed version, weak typing, mixed style of procedural and object-oriented programming (relaxed OO), and high performance.
