Hi James, I'm not sure I understand your question... The current version of my BASIC interpreter is Microsoft BASIC, TRS-80 "Level II" compatible. It supports generic Microsoft BASIC, plus the TRS-80 commands (including graphic commands like set, reset, point, peek, poke, print@, etc.). It loads ASCII or tokenized files. You could use it to run simple C64 BASIC programs, but it would have the following issues: 1. I don't know, but doubt, that C64 tokens are the same as TRS-80. So you would have to have an ASCII version of the file 2. No support currently for C64 peeks, pokes, character sets, and other graphic commands. At some point, I will add C64 support, but probably not for a while. Of course you can always use a C64 emulator to run C64 basic programs, they just won't be native win32 apps. I hope that answers your questions...
