Try GFA Basic. I know one good game for Amiga in this language so standalone exe must be possible.

AMOS Basic has a compiler (but people have mixed opinions about AMOS Basic...)

Thanks guys i'll give them a go!

I found a copy of the discs for Hisoft Basic in a pile of discs I bought second hand. I've installed it but without a manual I can only get so far. Any way, it does have an option to compile, and I assume this means compile the source to a free-standing executable. Yet when I do this, a window quickly appears and disappears (too quick to read) and i have no idea where the compiled executable is saved. Can anyone assist me, as from the examples, Hisoft Basic looks very standard and could me meet my simple needs.

Thank you all. Especially ma693541. I found a blitz manual there. Seems a little "non-standard" but nothing too radical.

I did work out how to get HiSoft Basic to compile a stand-alone exccutable: Under the Compile menu theres a "To disk?" menu entry which needs to be ticked by selecting it. It then compiles the executable in the same location as the source and automatically gives it a name.

Would be nice if anyone has a HiSoft Basic manual for sale, or put up a pdf in the zone?
