I use GFABASIC. However, I don't use it for all projects. If you are thinking of switching languages you should consider what your goals are. You wish to code games, demos, productivity software, utilities, or GEM applications?

GFABASIC is certainly the most basic utilissé on ATARI. but I still prefer OMIKRONBASIC, although sometimes I watch GFA soure
  .
I use increasingly assembler, but not really explicit French documents, not hollowing for hardware access.
Simple examples would be welcome.

actuelement I remade the compressor / decompressors image I used. (TNY was a bug in the backup, the palette of NTP was not good ...)

To DEGAS ELITE, I had relied on Wiky, but I have come to understand that the description refers only to the low resolution :contract:

Is there a BASIC for the ST that supports userdefined structs/records?

That feature was promised for GFA v4 which was never completed. I've tinkered around with quite a lot of BASIC implementations on the ST, far as memory serves me, none that I'm aware of had that feature. GFA does have a command to force a variable to reside at a specific address, but it's a far cry from having structures/record support.

I tried switching to HiSoft at one point, even bought the full package, but when it failed to run under MiNT I was instantly done with it. Same with Omikron, even though v5 came out, it's unstable. Never any attempts to fix them either, where as GFA had workarounds for MiNT and so I was able to keep using my favorite OS environment. I still crack a smile when I think about the one GFA patch called Bastard. :lol:
