    Having been a Java developer for some time (since 1997), and almost now obsessive in functional programming (after dealing with the OO paradigm for so long, and all the failures therein), it is brilliant to see such a well developed piece of code, that not only pays homage to the basic premise of the BASIC language, but attempts to highlight the importance of simplicity over bloat. It is not often also, that I download a Java project and have almost nothing to worry about - the quality of the code itself and the documentation, is top notch. My wishes, of course, would be to add javax.scripting support and maybe move on to a new CLI level (one-liners execution). But great code, and would love to see this adopted more
