XSTBasicXSTBasic is a quite fast basic-like language for DOS and Windows. XST is an interpreter but its sources may be converted to C with an utility provided and compiled to stand alone EXEs. XSTBasic contains aprox. 500 command and statements, it may manipulate graphics, sprites and scrolling. It supports 3D commands to create Full 3d Worlds and Objects. XSTBasic code may easily link with C programs and C instructions can be embedded in XST programs. It does not come with a GUI editor. XST web site offers source code examples (there's also a Doom clone to show the 3D functions of XST) and some utilities. The Windows version is called XSTBasic 2. Thanks Marco.
2009. XSTBasic has been discontinued.
