I love BASIC! Have programmed in other languages but nothing I've used has that "leave for years and still understand it" readability. I use it because it gets what I need done.
Most of my releases have been written in Blitz Basic either for Amiga or PC so far.
There's a disc image of some Sam Coupe stuff I did in 1991/92 which contains finished and unfinished BASIC proggys. http://coagulus.newport.net/c1/bin/robstuff.zip
Works on SAM emulators.
