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),
Text to Speech,
Data Structures such as:Array/List/Stack/Bundle
Text and Byte file I/O,
User defined functions,
TCP/IP Client and Server Sockets,
Send and Receive SMS Messages,
Make a phone call,
Superuser access (on rooted devices)
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.
Impressive… What these little less than 600ko can do… compared to some 34Mo for a standard calculator on iPad!
Superb! Really enjoy using the version of basic. I’ve made quite a few applications for streamlining my business. Well done!
Top class app Programming in minuets. Really good manual and example programs.
Nice and simple! Very straightforward and simple way to field test some programming ideas right on any android device. I can work on ideas at home and easily modify them at work since this uses an interpreter. It’s possible to create standalone executables as well.
Really great! Easy to use basic. Very well written examples of various functions from gps to camera and standard basic commands.
Please don’t want download this it is my humble request. I am writing a program it is not executing them it is of no use.
We’ve added new features and improved performance, but the big push for v1.90 is to fix bugs that have crept into the last few releases.
