I've been using it for several years now, and it's always been what is
lovingly referred to as "TestBasic." There are a lot of similarities to
SQABasic, but there's a lot of differences as well. It's always been this
"testbasic", as far as I know... Timba - how long have you been using it?

Timba use VT when was just Test, v 2.0 just came out and screw up some of
old test scenarios. Some things don't change. Microsoft owned it. Test 3.0
became 32 bit and included 16 bit stuff too. Could run on Win3x's Win32
subsystem. Way cool. Tom Arnold and Noel Nyman were TestBasic Heroes then.
TestBasic is language it uses: Basic with pointers, an attitude and
delusions of grandeur. Not SaxBasic (aka SQABasic). Test/Visual Test could
do function callbacks long before Visual Basic could. Sometimes, when one
codes himself into a corner, callbacks act as rope of escape. Usually, they
just tangle feet and drag one to programmer's pit of oblivion.
