Summary
  • True BASIC Inc's $99.95 True BASIC compiler adds 8087 support, EGA and Hercules graphics, modular grouping of subroutines, and ability to generate stand-alone .EXE files by using an optional run-time utility. The program's features include arithmetic and graphic functions, and compatibility with Amiga and Macintosh compilers. True BASIC is nearly as fast as native-code compilers and its ease of use is helped by features such as a simple, full-screen editor, on-line help, and files saved in standard ASCII format for easy reading of programs and data files. True BASIC is incompatible with existing BASIC programs, and has an inconvenient documentation update of 65 pages to its regular manual. The pricing scheme charges an extra $50 for the run-time module and a $350 unlimited license fee for distributing .EXE files commercially.
