tinyBasic is a Internet software developed by aldweb. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for tinyBasic:

Edit By BS Editor: Source code versions are available in Basic (iziBasic) and Pascal (PP, NaPP and Free Pascal), to be found in the download package together with full documentation. These source codes are of course in "Copyleft", as my small contribution to its original author's great philanthropy (read below).


Tiny BASIC

Tiny BASIC started out as a way to get a BASIC running in the minimum amount of memory space (~2 KBytes), because RAM used to be very expensive and home computers would only have a few KB of RAM back in the 1970's.
Here is an interesting Link about Tiny BASIC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiny_BASIC_programming_language

Nowadays, Tiny BASIC is no more than a programming game that still a few people have fun with
But, nevertheless, my work inspired some other people, including Carl Gundel, who is the author of the well-known Liberty Basic. Read the full story here: http://basicprogramming.blogspot.com/2007/01/tiny-basic-revisited.html
And play online with Carl's port of my tinyBasic here: http://www.runbasic.com/

My Tiny BASIC dialect, that I just called "tinyBasic", is similar and loosely based on the Intel 8080 Tiny BASIC written by Li Chen Wang and appearing in Doctor Dobb's Journal of Computer Calisthenics & Orthodontia in the May 1976 Vol 1, No. 5 issue. It is worth mentioning that Li Chen Wang's Tiny BASIC interpreter was released with full source code, showing the "copyleft" label for the first time, and occupied only 1.77 KBytes of memory.

The main differences between my tinyBasic dialect and Li Chen Wang's Tiny BASIC are:
- the use of float and not of integer numbers (because it is written in iziBasic, there is no need to bring a limit in this area), and the use of the integer division operation ("") to easily get the integer part of a number;
- the no use of GOSUB/RETURN to avoid a stack (and because you can easily simulate a GOSUB/RETURN call with GOTO and a variable set to the return line);
