The BASIC programs at this site have been tested on two independently developed
BASIC interpreters, in an approach to perfect portability. Testing was
done on a Mac, but the programs should work with most standard implementations
Compiler and interpreter. MacOS 8.6 to OS X.
A Windows version is rumored to be in the works. Quirk/bug: Metal takes the whole
CPU. The menubar and window location are locked while the program is running.
Switching to the Finder and back to Metal blanks the terminal window;
you can still type commands.
Interpreter. Runs on any MacOS, including 6.x; ported to OS X, Windows and Linux.
Bugs/quirks: Sets the pointer to the Watch (telling you to wait for the computer)
