Hu-BASIC

Post by Pacman »

Hello,

I am looking for MZF or MZT files containing programs in BASIC of the Hu-BASIC type to have examples of programming in this language.

Thank you.

I think I have some Japanese games in Hu-BASIC somewhere, will have to transfer from tape though. Otherwise, you could look at archive.org and search for the Japanese magazines like "I/O" and "Oh! MZ", they sometimes published listings in Hu-BASIC.

I think that most of the standard SP-* BASIC implementations ARE HuBasic, rebranded and written specifically as an official Sharp product.
Then HuBasic appearedcommercially too.

I wrote a tool, basck, able to identify particular fingerprints in the binary code.
it works on rom images, tape images, disk images, etc..
For what I could understand Hu-basic was often used I the sharp products, but others existed. I don't remember the exact results for the SP-xxxx products, I know that OmegaBasic is yet another original work, though. Microsoft Basic was rarely used in the Sharp products, while many other Japanese product had it in their rom.
