Ed Liss' BASIC360 Interpreter


Ed Liss has contributed this BASIC interpreter written in PL/I.  From the comments in the source, it was a student project that he resurrected from an archive after 42 years to make available to the Hercules/MVS community.

Update 07/29/2019: Ed sent me an updated installation archive, with instructions, to bring BASIC360 to version 3.1.0. The updated version contains new, very detailed instructions for using BASIC360, as well as a complete manual.

Download the archive _BASIC360-V3-1-0.tar.gz [MD5: 903a3e070258ca63c265a3e1b4f297a1], which contains an AWS tape image (IEBCOPY unload of three PDS datasets), instructions and jobstream to reload the datasets, and five PDF documents containing detailed instructions, a BASIC360 manual, and sample programs.  The jobstream may require modification for your system.

Output from a run of the $EXECUTE jobstream may be viewed here: basic360ivp.

I hope that you have found my instructions useful.  If you have questions that I can answer to help expand upon the information I have included here, please don't hesitate to send them to me:
