Hi catgate...

> GWbasic??

What!?! ;oO
I`ll take that as a joke... :)

I`ve still got a copy of that language along with QBASIC.EXE.

Sad ain`t I.

GWBasic? Pah. Real coders used GFA BASIC!

(Actually I've got no idea if they competed in any way. I just remember having GFA BASIC on my Atari ST, before I accidentally melted it.)

I used STOS on my Atari, believe I also bought one of the G* Basics meantioned - Books still in the bottom of my wardrobe.

I still have an ST up in the loft Smile

Hi Mike...

> GWBasic? Pah. Real coders used GFA BASIC!

Cough, splutter, spat me tea all over me KB with that reply... ;oD

Real coders use Bywater Basic!

(And yes I do use it in the AMIGA, I am a sad sod.)

Hi Ram...

> I used STOS on my Atari........

Bad luck, someone had to own an ATARI ST... ;oD

Not bad luck, just not a follower of fashion, Spectrum, Commodore, Windows...

Back to the books - GFA Basic System 2, along with First Basic.
