TinyBasic (Java)


Here is the Java version of my TinyBasic port. See the main page for full details.

My Impressions

I did this using Eclipse, a free, fantastic Java IDE. (Netbeans is also fantastic and I develop my Java web applications using Netbeans.) I love the Java platform. It's not as ubiquitous as Flash and the initial download and startup times are definitely heftier, but once it shows up, it really delivers :). I'm not afraid of building my own GUIs by hand, either. (Although I don't eschew GUI builders, this article pretty much sums up how I feel about them. I don't go out of my way to avoid them, though - I use the Visual Studio Forms Designer, for example.)


You need Sun's Java Runtime Environment to run this.

See the Sample Programs page for sample programs you can copy and paste into the window below.

Press [Esc], then [Enter] to break out of a running program.

This is the real, running program, not a screenshot!
