C= 64 BASIC as a Scripting Language

This application is a recompiled version of the original Commodore 64 binary - it is not a reimplementation, so while it runs at pretty much the maximum possible speed, it is still 100% compatible. The huge C file in the archive has been produced by feeding the original 6502 code into my static recompiler and optimizing it with LLVM. The original operating system interface (character I/O, LOAD, SAVE etc.) has been reimplemented in native C, so Commodore BASIC interfaces nicely with OS X/Windows/Unix - you can use pipe I/O, and you can pass the filename of a BASIC program on the command line.

For all the C=64's virtues I can think of better retro-basics to do this with...

Why not? I've been messing around with it for a few weeks and it's neat. I'm still trying to think of some way to put it to practical use. I'll let you know (maybe in two more weeks.)

Well, you can do similar things with BASin,

BASin is a Sinclair BASIC IDE, running a spectrum emulator patched to interface with the OS for filesystem work.

Not quite a recompiled/translated scripting language, but achieves much of the same things.
