Lots of internal changes. Faster and much smaller.
Will be released soon.

GFA-Basic Mailing List closed

You may or may not have receive an unsubscribe notice.

If you have any GFA coding questions, you can post them at:

Some may still prefer a list over a forum, but there was just little to no
traffic to speak of. The list will be put to better use. The RUN!
Software team shall remain, everyone else can remove the list from their
address books.

There is also another mailing list that covers all versions of GFA-Basic at:

Web Site Updated

Did some more work on the web pages. Hopefully a bit better organized. I moved all of the file download links to the page named 'Downloads' which seems the most logical place to find them.

Web Site Updated

I tried to come up with a simple way to track downloads, however due to the large number of bots, crawlers, and e-mail harvesters this proved impossible. They surf every link on the site and generate false hits on a daily basis. Some crawlers do not adhere to the meta tag standards for blocking access. Typical. :o(

I have installed a script which forces a real human to enter a pass code in order to download files. Unfortunately this is the only way to get accurate statistics. It's better than asking for e-mail addresses. ;o)

GFA-BASIC Compiler v3.6 r14 released

GFA-BASIC Compiler release 14 notes:

Missing procedures and labels are now detected
RESTORE missing_label !fixed
Program would still run, but the wrong DATA line was restored
GOTO/RESUME missing_label !fixed
ON ERROR/ON BREAK GOSUB missing_proc !fixed
EVERY/AFTER x GOSUB missing_proc !fixed
ON MENU GOSUB missing_proc !fixed
ON x GOSUB missing_proc1,missing_proc2 !fixed
These were all fatal! -> JSR 0.L or JMP 0.L
Code removed which was suppose to skip spaces in '$F%' and '$X'
Code always failed anyway, thus this never worked '$ F%'
Added error code -3 (Procedure or label undefined)

GBE status

I started yet another import module, this time the HiSoft BASIC token (*.t) format. The ASCII version (*.bas) is to messy to parse.

GBE is undergoing some change right now.

Added a HiSoft BASIC import module.

GFA status

The translations are now complete and some more testing needs to be done before the release.

Some tweaks and changes are taking place. ;o)

GFA Compiler status

Another error message has been added along with a new error code. Still need one more translation and a bit more testing before the update can be released. GBE has been tweaked to support the new error code.

GFA Compiler status

The bugs related to the missing procedures and labels has been resolved. Further testing needs to be done and some translations before it can be released. A new error message has been added. GBE is now able to place the cursor on the offending line and properly report what went wrong.

I'd like to thank some people for their translation work:
... GokMasE for the Swedish translation
... kellis for the French translation
... Ozk for the Norwegian translation
... SWE for the Slovenian translation
... Curly, Juergen Liebenstein, and Ulf Dunkel for the German translation

GFA Compiler status

I have discovered more bugs in the GFA Compiler. It is currently being investigated and hopefully a solution can be found.
The compiler translates these to JSR 0.l and JMP 0.l, which is very bad to say the least.

' all of these have missing procedures or labels
' none of these generate compiler/linker errors!
ON x GOSUB proc1,proc2,proc3,proc4
ON MENU IBOX 1,2,3,4,5 GOSUB ibox
ON MENU OBOX 1,2,3,4,5 GOSUB obox
PROCEDURE trap_error
RESUME error

GBE Status

Resolved the floating point problems in the STOS import module.

Floating point format in the amos import module also corrected. Still working on this one. ;o)

Do to the way extensions work in both of these products, files using extensions cannot be 100% detokenized. Suffice it to say, the extension scheme was poorly implemented. :-P

GBE Status

Created an Integer Basic (Apple) import module. This one is completed.

Work still continues on the amos import module.

I did some work on the STOS - The Game Creator import module. Solved the floating point conversion problems. This module is more or less done.

Work continues on the amos import module.

Current status

Created an Applesoft Basic import module. This one is completed.
There seems to be documents about this format that do not agree. I also found files in both formats. My import module will now load both types.

I started an amos (amiga) import module, but it's not finished yet.

The STOS import module was never finished either.
