Giga-BASIC

This is a set of machine code tools and utilities for programming in Sinclair SuperBASIC published by ABC Elektronic and Gigasoft.

The additional commands include sprite handling and real windowing handling commands, with the ability to add pulldown menus to your own programs. The program also included a full screen editor for SuperBasic, which was able to check a typed line via the interpreter for correct syntax (like ED in SuperToolkit 2).

This was first released in November 1985, and sold as a package with the Giga Soft Mouse.

Thanks to the two authors, and the QL Software preservation project, this program has now been released as freeware.
