Matrix Brandy BASIC V 1.21.13 for Linux with SDL

Brandy Basic is a BBC Basic V interpreter written by David Daniels and is distributed under the GNU General Public Licence Version 2.

Matrix Brandy is this fork, forked from David Daniels' Sourceforge release version 1.20.1. Developed on a CentOS 6 32-bit machine, tested by me on CentOS 6 64-bit and a Raspberry Pi.

Download the source code here. Previous releases are over here. It's also on Github. ChangeLog is here.
By user request, a Windows build is here, this is considered highly experimental, but does appear to run on 32-bit and 64-bit systems.

Chalksoft's 1983 adventure game, Pirate runs quite well.

...as does Yellow River Kingdom, from the BBC Micro welcome disc.

It's interesting to note that the RISC OS 5 developers are also using this game to test their Teletext implementation.

As of version 1.21.6, we have networking. Here's a quickly hacked together Viewdata client connected to Telstar.

The program can be found in examples/Mode7/telstar and a standalone Windows client is here - enjoy!
