Sample programs you can try to see what ZX BASIC looks like and how fast it runs.


Some little games examples.

Language Reference

Language Syntax is very close to the original Sinclair BASIC, but it's expanded and enhanced.
Language data types: Instead of working always with Floating Point numbers (also available), there are also some integer types which are faster an take less memory.
Comprehensive list (alphabetically ordered) of identifiers you shouldn't use as a variable name. E.g. FOR, PRINT. If you want usage instructions on a statement, also look here.

External Libraries

Library of functions and subroutines you can use in your programs. You might find them really useful.

Inline Assembler

Embedding inline assembler in your code is pretty easy.

Compiler Internals

Only for true hackers: This explains how the compiler does it job, how to expand it, etc. You must be a bit crazy if you enter here...
