Well, if it's a 6502 you don't need to port 6502 BBC BASIC to it, you just need the appropriate host interface veneer.

Code: Select all

$ bbcbasic
PDP11 BBC BASIC IV Version 0.25

I downloaded Jonathan Harston's BBC BASIC for the C64 yesterday, and wrote a couple of simple programs on VICE including one using the the BBC BASIC's inline assembler.

My aim was to show the folks following the YouTuber, 'The 8-Big Guy', how alternative BASICs could be installed on the new 8/16 bit micro he is building, based on the 65816 CPU and modified C64 Kernal.

I was very impressed with how it makes the C64 feel like a Beeb. I posted some screenshots on the COMMANDER 16's Facebook page to see what the response would be.
