[8:00 AM] OmikronBasic Get Basic New Tool In Update

Berkhan-Software has announced the latest version of their programming language OmikronBasic. The new version, 6.5, includes a built-in debugger and other improvements. According to Berkhan-Software:

OmikronBasic was originally developed in the 80s to be used on ATARI computers. After that, it was mainly used by scientists and engineers to find solutions for complex and mathematically demanding problems. For example, this is how an extensive program to simulate climatic changes was created. One engineering office uses a program written in Omikron Basic to calculate ship constructions; an institute for differential geometry uses a program written in Omikron Basic to calculate solution curves and their graphical representation.

The most important new feature of this version is the integrated Source Code Debugger. The debugger may be used to run through your program in single steps while monitoring the content of variables and memory cells as well as being able to step into and step out of procedures and functions. There is also an animation mode, which may be used to run a program in something akin to slow-motion. The debugger is thus best suited to find errors and for didactic purposes to clarify, e.g., the working of algorithms step by step.

You can find more information on OmikronBasic at the company's web site. The update is free to registered owners of version 6.x. The full version is priced at US$143.
