Decimal BASIC for Linux (x86)
We provide with an ISO Full BASIC language system that works on Gnu/Linux (x86).
This program implements almost all of the core module and the graphics module of ISO Full BASIC.
It has not been conformed with the standard, whereas there are very few differences.
All graphics commands prescribed in ANSI Full BASIC are implemented with slight incompatibility on behavior.
Most part of the modules module and the individual character input module for Full BASIC are implemented, too.

A Note on 64 bit Linux.
The multi-byte character input window works good on the above versions of Ubuntu and Debian 64 bit.
For Fedora 17/19/20, an additional command shown below makes it work.

For Scientific Linux 6.4,
yum install ibus-gtk.i686 gtk2-immodule-xim.i686
Decimal BASIC for Linux(i386) ver. 6.5.12 (Kylix Qt2 Edition)
basic65Ce.tar.gz Ver. 6.5.12 (3,765,165 Bytes)
BASIC launching command is 'BASIC'.
To extract, type on the terminal
tar xvzf basic65Ce.tar.gz (Enter)
To start BASIC, type
cd basic (Enter)
Language Specifications part of the help has been translate,
but most of the rest part of the help is remaining not translated, written in Japanese.
And the executable includes some Japanese Characters originated from Kylix Japanese edition.
The right bottom end buttons of the file dialogs are Cancel buttons.
If you have Japanese language environment, you can launch BASIC as
to enable Japanese Characters.
On This version, LOCATE POINT, GET POINT, MAT LOCATE POINT, and MAT GET POINT require an extra mouse click before intended clicks.
MAT LOCATE POINT or MAT GET POINT with variable length vectors or a variable length matrix goes but works no good.
