Atari Basic Compiler

Monarch Data Systems has introduced ABC, a BASIC compiler for the Atari that translates BASIC programs into integer P-code that runs up to 12 times faster than the original.

The program allows compiled programs to run without the BASIC cartridge, allows larger arrays, accepts most BASIC programs with little modification, allows DIM, GOTO, GOSUB, and RESTORE, compiles at 100 lines per minute, and includes a utility to generate relocatable code.

The suggested price of the compiler, which requires one disk drive and 40K, is $69.95.
