KidBASIC 0.6 Released

KidBASIC is an easy to use version of BASIC designed to teach young children the basics of computer programming. It has a built-in graphics mode which lets them draw pictures on screen in minutes, and a set of detailed, easy-to-follow tutorials that introduce programming concepts through fun exercises.

Version 0.6 adds a number of mathematical functions: sin, cos, tan, abs, rand, floor, ceil, and int. Also included is a string() function to convert numerical values to strings.

Finally, performance has been enhanced, and there is now an option to save the compiled bytecode to a file.

Help and comments are always welcome. Check out our web site at http://kidbasic.sourceforge.net for more information.
