Dynamic compilation for computer emulation

This post is really about using Apple Integer BASIC as a scripting language…. Intel Mac users can use Apple’s “Woz BASIC” as a scripting environment on Apple’s Unix.

There is also a related thesis on emulation of old software, which explains the title of the post:

So far, this is only available on Intel Macs, and I MUST caution you against using BASIC for too long, lest you develop bad habits like using GOTO. Better learn Lisp or a Lisp dialect such as LOGO as your first language.
