Hi Stanley,

     You might also like to consider "BBC BASIC for Windows"
(http://www.rtrussell.co.uk/bbcwin/bbcwin.html), developed from the
language written for the Acorn BBC Micro in the early 80's, the
author, Richard Russell, is actively maintaining and enhancing it, and
supports a Yahoo Group where discussions and advice are shared
(http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/bb4w/).  It is priced in UK
pounds, but equates to about US$40 for the full version, or a free
version is also available for trials that is limited to 8 Kbytes
program size, and doesn't allow compilation.

     Regards,

          Peter
