More ST BASIC?
I recently began using a 520ST.
Since I already have an 800XL and was familiar with ANALOG, I decided to order a subscription to ST-Log. As of now, the only languages we have are BASIC and Logo. It was to my dismay that I discovered ST-Log has little, if any, BASIC programs. I have seen some fine programs written in C or Pascal, but almost none in BASIC. Please include more ST BASIC programs in future issues.
We usually judge the popularity of a programming language by the submissions we receive for the magazine. Almost all BASIC programs we receive these days are written using Michtron's GFA BASIC. This is because programmers have found ST BASIC to be too limited and bug-ridden, and they are not willing to risk wasting valuable development time using it. However, we are perfectly willing to publish programs written in ST BASIC. If this is the language of your choice, you have a chance to register your vote by filling out and sending in the questionnaire found elsewhere in this issue. If we find that many people still have an interest in ST BASIC, we will make a greater effort to acquire programs written with it.
