Once again, basic these days isn't what it once was. A lot of the discussion is moot because its no longer the 80's/early 90's or earlier.
This has been pointed out, and disregarded a few times already.
And as also been pointed out several times you are completely, fundamentally, wrong!
Just because there are languages that call themselves BASIC that are modern doesn't mean there is A modern BASIC, there are a huge amount of programming languages that shares very little with each other and the standard BASIC language!
Is it trying to out-clever someone to point out this basic fact?!?
