Re: GOTO -1

10 x%=20 20 PRINT"Test"" 30 GOTO x% This works fine *provided* you have line numbers. If you do not - which is the default with BB4W - you get a "No such line no." error. I should imagine that GOTO 20 would produce the same error. It looks like we've unearthed another Brandy bug! Matrix Brandy BASI...

Re: FOR lists

Noted. As you may have seen, I raised the issue at StarDot (where there is probably a deeper BBC BASIC knowledge base than here) and the reactions so far have been universally positive. The author of Matrix Brandy has already expressed an interest in implementing it in that dialect of BBC BASIC, an...

For the purpose of comparison, Matrix Brandy allows GOTO 0 (and a program line number of 0). Indeed the range 0..65279 is valid.

GOTO -1 (and any negative number, or a variable) gives "Syntax error". GOTO requires a constant, you cannot give it a variable.

Re: Increase font size for Raspbian Brandy ?

Just a heads-up, Matrix Brandy , a fork of Brandy BASIC, doesn'thave that bug requiring a MOVE after a mode change. (However, on my old Wheezy installation on my RPi2, you need to compile without -O2 else graphics functions mis-plot and can crash it. No idea the cause, as it doesn't do that on my Ce...

Re: BBC on linux

Another option is a relatively new fork of Brandy - MODE changes work properly, mouse input is supported, even some networking, along with a nearly fully functional Mode 7. It's over at http://brandy.matrixnetwork.co.uk/ with full source and link to GitHub. And I'll make a note to test that PLOT com...
