RBASIC on Linux

RBASIC was designed for DOS/Windows, but it seems to run fine under WINE on Linux.

Note that for .EXE's to launch under WINE on Debian, I had to make them executable. You can leave them non-executable if you prefix commands with 'wine'.

mv RBASICXP.exe RBASICXP.EXE
chmod +x RBASICXP.EXE
chmod +x A100.EXE

Here is a GNU makefile for a simple RBASIC project. Instructions are embedded in the makefile for tailoring to your own installation and project.

# Skeleton Makefile for RBASIC projects on Linux.

#
# 0. Install Wine, srecord, and GNU Make, and unzip RBASIC somewhere
# 1. Copy this into your project directory with your *.100 source file
# 2. Edit WINTOOLSPATH, TOOLSPATH to point to RBASIC
#    WINTOOLSPATH must be a path WINE will grok.
#    TOOLSPATH must be a path BASH will grok.
# 3. Customize RBASICOPT, ASMOPT with any desired switches
# 4. Set PROGRAM to the name of your BASIC ASCII source
#    file, omitting extension. I.e., for XYZ.100, PROGRAM=XYZ
# 5. make clean
# 6. make
# 7. Burn the resulting .BX with REXMGR or load it as an OptROM with
#    VirtualT.
