This is an Acorn RISC OS software application that converts/translates from Text Files to equivalent coded BBC Basic Files, and is available for free download.

After having downloaded and unzipped the !Text_BBC Application, drag the application to a suitable directory on your hard disc. Double click on the !Text_BBC icon to load it onto the icon bar.

Drag a Text 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 Text 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 'B'. This is the resulting converted BBC Basic file

Please read the text file '!ReadMe' within this application for conditions of use.

This program is shareware, and will only work on writable media (not CD ROMs).

Additional Help is available from the bar icon menu, or by using the Acorn facility !Help, present in the 'Apps' directory.

Version 1.00 gives the option of listing all the identifiers present in the BBC Basic with their type (Variable, Function or Procedure Name).

Click on icon to DownLoad Zipped !Text_BBC Version 2.00, Now 32-bit compatible.
