I have been from a link on

I notice there the site has some antique versions of basica and gwbasic.


Apart from the listed versions, the oldest version i have found is 1.12. 


This is IBM basic.  I have managed to get most of these to work under Windows 2K, PCDOS 5.02 etc.  The current list of versions are

A1.00, A1.10, A2.00, A2.10, A3.00, A3.30, A3.31, A3.40, A4.00
D1.00, D1.10, D2.00, D2.10, D3.00 =

D3.10 is the last version of diskbasic, the newer versions are just loaders for basica.

A3.10, D3.10, and A3.20 test for DOS version.

A3.40 and A4.00 are identical, except for the version number and the copyright date.  A3.40 is from OS/2 and DOS 5.x, A4.0 from DOS 4.0.  A3.31 is from OS/2 1.2.

All of these are converted by using PCE and Movbasic v5, the latter being modified and recompiled.  The result is similar to what produces IBMBASICA210 that is circulating on the net.
