Thank you Time for a mention of QuiteBasic today.

In the article "Fifty Years of BASIC, the Programming Language That Made Computers Personal", Harry McCracken, tells the story about BASIC and in one section retells the story about David Brin's Salon article and QuiteBASIC.

Very nice interpreter. But I need variables with many letters...

Just discovered Quite BASIC recently. My kids love it! We're running through an old kids story I read in the 80's called "MicroAdventure" which is a sci fi story with BASIC programs inside that the reader can copy, use, and debug within the context of the story. Pretty fun. However, we need an ASCII conversion function (to translate the secret code!!) Do you have something in there that works like:
ASC(X)
??

Thanks for making this. It's quite fun!
