BBC BASIC for Windows links

Below are links to some websites of BBC BASIC for Windows users; in most cases they include downloadable programs which were written in BBC BASIC and 'compiled' to produce Windows™ executables. Although it is possible to write very professional and sophisticated programs in BBC BASIC for Windows, it is (as with any language) equally possible to produce very poor programs! I cannot vouch for the quality of any of the programs listed, nor am I responsible for the contents of the websites. Please send any comments to the authors, not to me!

If you find any of the links don't work, or if you would like your own website to be included, email me with details.

Instat is a simple general statistics package. It started on the BBC Microcomputer in 1983, graduated to the PC in 1986 and then moved to Windows; it now uses BBC BASIC for Windows. Instat is intended to support the teaching of statistics, particularly for those who are not specialists.
