The Bywater BASIC Interpreter (a.k.a. bwbasic) is a BASIC interpreter. It supports a large subset of the ANSI Standard for Full BASIC, including all of the ANSI Standard for Minimal BASIC. Bywater BASIC was written in C, and runs on Unix-like and DOS-based systems (including Windows).
Bywater BASIC can be downloaded from its Sourceforge project.
Contrary to what the manuals say, some programs written in the Minimal BASIC standard, especially those containing undeclared arrays (i.e. with dimension 10 by default), cannot be run in versions earlier than 3.00. In general, in order to load programs, that use arrays, it is necessary to restart the interpreter.
