BASIC-256 v0.9.6.66 Private

Checker on 10 May 2013
  • 8MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by USBman

BASIC-256 is an easy to use version of BASIC designed to teach young children the basics of computer programming. It uses traditional control structures like gosub, for/next, and goto, which helps kids easily see how program flow-control works. It has a built-in graphics mode which lets them draw pictures on screen in minutes, and a set of detailed, easy-to-follow tutorials that introduce programming concepts through fun exercises.

Thanks GoD, for pointing to Taskix. It is portable, undemanding (1MB memory footprint) and gets the job done...

Useful App for organizing taskbar buttons and system tray icons for easier access. It is not as memory friendly as Taskix but I have found that after running this for a little while its memory usage drops to just below 1,500 KB. The author comments on this in response to the second question at
http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/faq.htm
Although I am a memory (RAM) conservationist, I prefer Taskbar Shufle to Taskix because its visual effects for dragging buttons and system tray icons is simply easier on the eyes than the sudden and more eye straining transition provided by Taskix.

The link above is broken - should be http://www.freewebs.com/nerdcave/ for the site and http://nerdcave.webs.com/downloads/taskbar_shuffle_2.5.zip for the download. GoD: there is x64 version now (didn't try it myself...)

Somebody know if there will be a program update?

webfork on 2010-09-23 17:14

Gmacri: looks like the last release was the "final" one. You might try emailing the authors.

Windows 98 reports "Error Starting Program: the Dev.EXE file is linked to missing export SETUPAPI.DLL:CM_Free_Log_Conf_Handle" Program does not Start. Therefore is not Win 95/98

MiDoJo, thanks for the info. I will update the entry to reflect this.

It seems to be written in AutoIT. Perhaps could be recompiled for ANSI to work on Win9X?
