A lightweight BASIC interpreter written in standard C. It's aimed to be embeddable, extendable and portable. It is a dynamic typed programming language, reserves structured syntax, supports a style of prototype-based programming (OOP), also implements a functional paradigm by lambda abstraction. The core is written in a C source file and an associated header file. It's easy to either use it as a standalone interpreter or embed it with existing projects.
A version of it is embedded in WWIV these days.
"Commodore BASIC" (cbmbasic) is a 100% compatible version of Commodore's version of Microsoft BASIC 6502 as found on the Commodore 64. You can use it in interactive mode or pass a BASIC file as a command line parameter.

This symbolism dictionary endeavors to provide some possible cultural significances of various symbols, and suggest ways in which those symbols may have been used in context. Most symbols are not code signals, like traffic lights, where red means stop and green means go, but part of a complex language in which green can mean jealousy or fertility or even both, depending on context. It is up to each of us to explore works of art sensitively, and decide for ourselves how the symbols in each work function. This website is offered as an aid in that enriching activity.

Dscript is a style of calligraphy which is designed to represent information in two dimensions instead of one. Uses basic shapes and pen strokes that are both flexible and efficient. Can be written horizontally, vertically, or some combination if the writer chooses. Seems like it could aid visual thinkers in memorizing lots of very specific information (like structures and compositions of complex compounds in organic chemistry).
