Tiny BASIC Not so bad
  • Advocate of FreeBASIC, which I consider to be a tragically underrated language
  • I prefer compact, elegant code. I try to avoid needless verbosity.
  • I'd rather work on useful programs than curiosities; Hunt The Wumpus is a notable exception.
  • I've recently become interested in Tiny BASIC, which forces imaginative solutions due to its very limited capabilities.
  • Of all the solutions I have contributed, I am proudest of this one.
  • I've also recently developed a liking for Fermat, which is powerful for certain applications, has an unusual syntax, and hardly anyone has ever heard of it.
