The Jan 2006 issue of Dr. Dobb's Journal offers an ANSI C
implementation of Tiny Basic. Source is available at:

http://www.ittybittycomputers.com/It...asic/index.htm

You would expect it to compile and run under MINIX 3. I haven't access
to my MINIX 3 machine at the moment so I haven't tried it.

Just thought I'd pass that along. I have no idea how primitive or
full-featured this 'Tiny' Basic might be. But the author certainly has
credentials, as you can read in Dr. Dobb's.

Thanks.
