Liberty BASIC Workshop, by Alyce's Restaurantis a program that caught my eye because of past history. In the earlydays of personal computers I used to program in BASIC, whichstands for "Beginners All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. Iused to make simple games for my daughters in BASIC. So, when I sawLiberty Basic Workshop I just had to look at it. It has somany cool features that I can't possibly cover them all, but I'll try tohit some high-points.

Liberty BASIC Workshop is really a full-featured programmingenvironment and I do mean full-featured. It comes with a widerange of tools that make it easy to create programs. There's aGraphical User Interface or "GUI" builder that lets you create amazing GUI interfaces. That wasn't available in the early versions ofBASIC. All the different aspects of the program are fully integrated, soyou know everything will fit together smoothly.

Liberty BASIC Workshop comes complete with tools and wizards thatreally make it easy to create some cool programs, all on yourown. There's a Game Workshop and I had fun with that. You cancreate your own toolbars, keep track of variables, include tooltips, andlots more. I really liked the fact that the program included ways topreview things like graphics and sounds. It has support for dragand drop, bookmarks, indenting, zoom, line numbers, and so much more.

Liberty BASIC Workshop has a ton more features and you'll justhave to try it out for yourself to appreciate them all. I like it somuch that it's not only a Pick, but I'm also going to make it one of my Dr. File Finder Favorites! and in 25years of looking at software there aren't very many of those. So,whether you know how to program in BASIC or if you'd like to learn, thisis a great way to do it. Give Liberty BASIC Workshop a try. Irecommend it.
