Ugh, stop twitching
it's a basic interpreter
software Posted 2003-02-16 17:49:24 by Jim Crawford
This is fairly old news, but I was poking around in some of my old directories and I found this basic interpreter I implemented on the school “workstations” whilst taking a C programming course. I was working off of a floppy, which is why I didn't break the code up into multiple modules. Fewer excruciatingly slow disk accesses that way.

Nothing to get excited about, really. It's sub-1980s-micro quality, mostly because it has no array support. But I like it, because it's mine.

I fixed the bug that crashed when you added a line, if the interpreter was compiled with anything other than DJGPP. It's a wonder it worked at all, honestly.

I also toyed with the idea of adding array support, but boy is that code grotty.
