What is Vision BASIC?
Vision BASIC provides over 100 new BASIC commands for bitmap graphics, sprites, characters, sound, interrupts, and more. The programming environment includes features such as a memory manager, an improved program editor, simplified disk commands, user-created commands, and complete compatibility with emulators such as VICE and THEC64. All Vision BASIC programs are compiled into extremely fast standalone machine language for execution, and assembly language can be mixed seamlessly with BASIC code to give an even further speed boost.
