DEFPROC, ENDPROC and PROC in Next Basic

Post by SpectrumOldi » Wed Sep 26, 2018 1:03 am

I noticed you have introduced procedure calls in the basic and I love it. I learned to program with procedures on BBC basic nearly 34 years ago, which made it easy for me to learn Turbo Pascal later.

I hope someone will make a good Next Basic manual and a Reference Guide for Next Basic which highlights the differences between Next Basic and Sinclair Basic.

The next manual covers the basic. Although I haven't seen the relevant chapters I know it's in there.

Take a look in the latest SD Distro, in the folder "docs", sub folder "nextzxos".
There's a "NextBASIC_New_Commands_and_Features" PDF there for our reference, until the User's Manual is finished and published. ;)

I have posted the relevant chapters publicly in the Next Facebook group when I was still on Facebook. Look for them and you'll see the commands covered. I'll post them here in the next few days as well as they're a bit more descriptive than Garry's documentation and they include examples as well
