Hmm, so BBC Basic isn't that much smaller than say, Lua, which does provide structures, classes, and other such modern things? And anyway, people who care about a 20% (wild approximation) different in file size between a Basic and a C program at runtime really need to get out more and just buy a new machine if it's a problem.

  • ARM Cortex-A8 port of RISC OS 5: first screenshot
    An ambitious attempt to port the RISC OS Open sources to the new-fangled ARM Cortex-A8 architecture (as used in various gadgets) has produced its first promising screenshot - although there is still plenty of work to be done. However RISCOS Ltd is still grumbling about licences, claiming that a non-Iyonix ROM image from ROOL sources can't be released. Meanwhile, RISC OS Open has joined an ARM community programme to boost its profile among other developers.
