22:13 btiffin I was going to add a BaCon language page, but wonder if that is deemed polluting the namespace.  It's a BASIC transpiler, but it does more than just BASIC, and I don't think it deserves a simple implementation page, as there are a lot of code samples where it will list as fairly unique.  But, wanted to ask first, just in case
22:17 opticron hmm...if it takes BASIC as input and eventually compiles down to code which can compile into a working executable or which can be interpreted, how is it different from the structured-BASIC examples (if there are any)?
22:19 btiffin Things like OPEN Ip$ & ":51000" FOR SERVER AS mynet
22:22 btiffin Along with some other extensions that not be that common in some of the other BASIC implementations, like the High level Universal GUI, HUG.   Or USEC for directly embedding C source code inline.  I don't really care, as this will just be a make work project, but I think it deserves a page of it's own, linked back to BASIC.
22:24 opticron yeah, based on how language variants are currently handled, I'd say it'd deserve its own langage page (see ALGOL variants)
22:26 opticron and there are currently a ton of BASIC variants represented
22:29 btiffin I'm going to make the first commit then.  Thanks @opticron.  It does provide for unique solutions to many of the Rosetta samples.
