BASIC Compiler -- How to use it ?

  Dick9 00:02 30 Aug 04

I have a compiler called "first base".
As soon as I load my 27,000 byte GW-Basic programme into it , I get the message "Line too long -- CR inserted. Press ESC."
Then gibberish appears.
Do you know the trick to using this compiler ?
Or maybe I need a better compiler ?
If so, where can I get one ?

I think you will find it on the Windows 9x CD. If not, contact me via the yellow envelope.

My version is 1.1 which it seems is a bit out-of-date, but it used to load GW Basic programs OK.

To Pesala : Sorry. The download was fine. The programme LOOKS ok. It acts like it has loaded my programme (puts the name up). But will not run it. Will not make an .exe file for it. Nothing happens, no matter where I click.
