This is an Acorn RISC OS software application that converts/translates from BBC Basic Program Files to equivalent Text Files, and is available for free download.
After having downloaded and unzipped the !BBC_Text Application, drag the application to a suitable directory on your hard disc. Double click on the !BBC_Text icon to load it onto the icon bar.
Drag a file to the bar icon to enter its file name into the main 'SetUp' panel slot. Alternatively clicking on the bar icon brings up the main 'SetUp' panel and the file can be dragged to this panel, or the file name can be typed manually into the slot at the top of this panel.
Select options from the 'SetUp' panel, and then click on the 'Run' icon. After a while a Text File is offered for saving in the same directory as the original file, but with the leaf name prefixed by a capital 'T'. This is the resulting converted Text file
Please read the text file '!ReadMe' within this application for conditions of use.
Additional Help is available from the bar icon menu, or by using the Acorn facility !Help, present in the 'Apps' directory.
The previous Version 1.01 being supplied gave the option of terminating lines with 'Newline' or 'Return' 'Newline' character/s.
Version 1.02 now being supplied gives the additional option of listing all the identifiers in the supplied BBC Basic with their type (Variable, Function or Procedure Name).
