BASIC to TAP v. 2.5 (12/2/2011, Mentore Siesto) Readme/What's new
2.5 06-06-10: Changes: - Functions would take "the rest of the expression" as argument rather than just the next value. - Stronger enforcement of separator tokens (;,') in a PRINT statement. - The use of 'TO' in string arrays was not accepted. SYNTAX ------ BAS2TAP [-q] [-w] [-e] [-c] [-aX] [-sX] FileIn [FileOut] -q goes into quiet mode, suppressing banner and progress indication. -w suppress generation of warnings. -e write errors to the stdout in stead of the stderr stream. -c makes token matching case independant. The drawback is that variables that have the same name as a token (eg. 'print') cannot be used, as they will be treated as (unexpected) tokens. -n disables syntax checking. -aX sets the auto-start line to line X. -sX sets the TAP block name to X (max 10 characters). If no output filename is provided, the same name as the input file will be used, but with extension `.TAP'.
