cbmbasic 1.0 with Plugins

I moved cbmbasic development to SourceForge and released version 1.0, which has the following added features:

  • RDTIM/SETTIM support (George Talbot)
  • LOAD”$” on Win32 (Lorenzo)
  • RND() is now random (Wolfram Sang)
  • The C code now hooks into the cbmbasic plugin infrastructure. This lets developers add additional statements, functions etc. Right now, you can turn this on with “SYS 1” (turn off with “SYS 0”), and use the new statements LOCATE y,x (set cursor position), SYSTEM string (run command line command) and the extended WAIT port,mask, which implements the Bill Gates easter egg.
