in thread A BASIC interpreter to run StarTrek

I used http://www.vintage-basic.net/downloads/Vintage_BASIC_Users_Guide.html as a reference while writing the interpreter so it should be pretty close to MS BASICs of the early '80s. The Guide leaves a few unanswered questions ("should logic short circuit?" for example), but proved sufficient to get my interpreter working enough to run StarTrek (for some yet to be determined definition of "run").

Optimising for fewest key strokes only makes sense transmitting to Pluto or beyond

    Looks like a good opportunity to learn some Haskell with Monads with an hands on example. :)
