The following programs do not make use of the extended
environment but they are full compatible with it. They
run with any graphic resolution (QL, EGA, VGA, SVGA) and they are
Minerva 2nd screen compatibles. They run happily on JM, JS, MGx,
Minerva, SMSQ and SMSQ/E operating systems. Some of the programs
have been updated in order to run with new GD2 modes (e.g. QPC2
65536 colours MODE 32)
This is an useful development & debugging utility for the SuperBasic or SBasic programmer. Reference edit PROCedures, FuNctions, variables, keywords, combination of tokens (eg. "FOR i=1 TO"), strings... All the reference operations are done in an easy, comfortable and fast way: all the referenced lines are put in a QPac 2 style menu. MasterBasic can be also used with Minerva MultiBasics or SMSQ SBASICs. Reviewers said: "Elegant and useful" (Simon Goodwin QL World 4/93) "Easy to use and well thought out, even the more casual SuperBasic programmer should get a lot of use out of it" (Rich Mellor QL World 6/92). This is a full function freeware version. The manual is included (italian and english language) in Quill format.
The latest v1.51 version is GD2 compatible (16, 256 and 65536 colours - only MODE 32 has been tested though). SBASIC sources of MasterBasic are available upon a simple Email request.
Turbofix extensions updated thanks to George Gwilt investigations (v3.0d) - They are now fully Turbo compatible. You can also compile Turbo programs from SMSQ/E SBasics or Minerva Multibasics.
