This is an Acorn RISC OS software application that indents BBC BASIC Program Files, and is available for free download.

After having downloaded and unzipped the !BBCIndent Application, drag the application to a suitable directory on your hard disc. Double click on the !BBCIndent 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 BBC Basic File is offered for saving in the same directory as the original file, but with the leaf name prefixed by a capital 'I'. This is the resulting indented 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 being supplied was 1.01, which offered the choice of injecting a REM with Conversion details at the beginning of the indented Output File.

The Version now supplied is 1.02, which offers the choice of listing all the identifiers used in the BBC Basic with their type (Variable, Function or Procedure Name).

Click on icon to DownLoad Zipped !BBCIndent Version 1.02, Now 32-bit compatible.
