Omikron Basic is a versatile and easy to learn programming language delivering the true BASIC look and feel even while running under modern operating systems.
- Most Omikron Basic applications do not require internal knowledge of the Macintosh operating system.
- No complex project definitions, no runtime libraries. Simply open a program window and start to write your program.
- The super speedy compiler/debugger allows an immediate testing of the programs.
- Omikron Basic generates extremely fast and compact PowerPC code. Small programs remain small after compiling them.
- Modular programming with procedures and functions.
- Recursive programming due to local and global variables.
- Indirect addressing (same as with C) with pointer and address operators.

Please visit our website at http://www.berkhan.com/basic/feat_d.htm for additional information about the many features of Omikron Basic.

New in Omikron Basic 8:
- Omikron Basic 8 now runs as a native application under Mac OS X.
- The extension library was expanded with Mac OS X functions.
- The DIM command now functions also with pointer and address operators.

Omikron Basic runs nativly under System X or under System 8.6 or 9 with CarbonLib installed.
The program requires at least 16 MB of free RAM memory. Once installed, Omikron Basic 8.0 uses approx. 20 MB of hard drive space.

Omikron Basic is available in three download variations:

- The Lite version costs $53 and is suitable for medium-sized programs with max. 5000 program lines.

Omikron Basic Press Info June 30, 2003

Omikron Basic 7.5 (Beta) for Mac OS X

The programming language Omikron Basic for Apple PowerMac is now available as beta version 7.5.
It is now possible to use the control word COMPILER "Carbon" to compile programs in such a way that they run native under Mac OS X. However, most programs do not need to be modified to still benefit from the new functionality. Only the Extension Library and the EasyGem Library have to be replaced with the latest versions. Only direct operating system calls integrated into the program manually have to be checked for Mac OS X compatibility.
Of course, the new version still generates classic applications as well, if required.

In addition to the two compiler control words COMPILER "Carbon" and COMPILER "Classic" the new BASIC command CALLR has been added as well. The new command may be used to effectively call assembler routines such as the ones directly integrated in BASIC programs with the Assembler Library because all parameters are passed in registers.

Omikron Basic 7.5 prices start at $53 for the lite download version. The professional version costs $143 and is supplied on CD. Registered owners of Omikron Basic 7 can upgrade free of charge. Registered owners of Omikron Basic 6 can upgrade at a discount.
Omikron Basic 7.5 requires System 8.6 and 12 MB of available memory.
