Help & Support
- Have a question? Need help or comment a report a bug? Go to the ZX BASIC forum
- Here you are external resources: other tools, IDEs, graphic designers and projects related to ZX BASIC. Have a look!
- 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.
- Library of functions and subroutines you can use in your programs. You might find them really useful.
- Embedding inline assembler in your code is pretty easy.
- 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...
- ZX Basic was designed from the base as a Retargeable Compiler, so it should be not hard to extend it to other architectures. This is work in progress. See Other Architectures for more info.
