SYNTAXERROR : Some words from the editor

Liberty Basic is always getting better. If you have not heard yet, there is a new 3.02 beta in testing right now.It not only fixes some bugs, but offers new commands and functionality. It is exciting to see the language grow, and I know that Carl is thinking about the next major release and what will be included in it. New stuff all the time - isn't it great? Carl is committed to making this the best all purpose BASIC language for hobbyists and professional programmers alike. We are very fortunate.

I own other languages, some of which I have paid a handsome sum of change for, only to find out that they have decided not to support their product further. For a minimum investment Carl offers programmers and would be programmers the chance to express their creativity in many ways with a fantastic ever evolving language. Our hats are off to you Carl. Keep the great things coming.

Let me also apologize for the size of this month's newsletter. So much great stuff, and the article I wanted to write originally for this month's newsletter never even made copy. Oh - you will probably see it in October.

Thank you - Brad Moore (August 2002 Editor)



The Liberty BASIC Newsletter encourages all LB programmers to submit articles for publication. Everyone has something valuable to say, from beginners to veteran LBers. Consider sharing a code routine, with explanation. Perhaps you can review a favorite LB website, or program, or coding tool? Why not submit a list of questions that have been nagging at you? How about sharing your favorite algorithm?
