A free evaluation version is available. This is fully functional except that the amount of memory available for the user's program, data and stack is restricted to 8K bytes, and the Compile command is not available.
Installer, most demo programs that run in 8k limit, assembler.
Sound ok, polly.bbc demo
Windows window management
What does not
Any program with INKEY$() statement e.g. Piano.bbc
causes lock up of BBC Basic when run
opengl.bbc crashes bbc basic
What was not tested
may be some library dependency issues. Need to test bbc lib workarounds supplied for INKEY event handling.
