The Bywater BASIC Interpreter (bwBASIC) implements a large superset of the ANSI
Standard for Minimal BASIC (X3.60-1978) and a significant subset of the ANSI
Standard for Full BASIC (X3.113-1987) in C.
It also offers shell programming facilities as an extension of BASIC. bwBASIC
seeks to be as portable as possible.
