  1. A little off topic - BBC BASIC is an odd, for the time, implementation of BASIC, in that it was possibly closer to PASCAL than any other BASIC of the time. Implemented in a 16K ROM, it supported limited recursion, something so close to jagged arrays as made no odds, and an in-line 6502 assembler. I think Sophie Wilson, the primary dev behind the language, has spoken about it. It's very much "Nicolaus Wirth complete" in my opinion, and strongly reflects the paradigms of the era (OOP was about a decade away in any meaningful sense) If you want to have a tinker in the last [Acorn] iteration of the language, BBC BASIC V is part of RISCOS for the Raspberry Pi.
