FreeBASIC Embedded Scripting Engine


I had originally started this thread on the Plantet Squires forum the FireFly author runs but was ban I assume due to taking attention away from Jose Roca that is consuming the forum focus with his PowerBASIC port of his INCLUDE files to FreeBASIC.

A special thanks to Charles Pegge (OxygenBasic author) for creating the example and the Script BASIC API include file for FreeBASIC.

Note: The attach zip contains everything you need to compile / run the above example as well as any other embedded script you would like to use.

This is a minimalistic Script BASIC console interpreter compiled with FreeBASIC instead of like scriba in C which is a static linked implementation.
