    Greetings.

    I installed BASIC-256 on my son's (age 10) computer last week, and he spent hours and hours going through the tutorials and trying various programs.  He just loves it!

    I had been wondering for a while how to introduce him to programming, and this project was the answer.  For the record, I learned to program in the late 1970's, first using Fortran on punch cards and then Basic + assembler on a TRS-80.

    The only issues we had are with the documentation - it's great - but we need more!  That being said, how can I help?  I am interested in working on the documentation (e.g. examples for each command/function, more explanations) and more tutorials.  I even have an in-house proof reader :-)

    Take care,
