Firmware v2.92 Poll (bwbasic interpreter)

Post by Alan » Fri Sep 25, 2009 9:13 am

The reason for this poll is that we would like to get the views of our users :

Basically we would like to know if the bwbasic interpreter is being used or not. If you would let us know in this poll please.

Thank you.

Looks like bwbasic is mostly redundant.

To the one person (so far) who is using it, have you written complex code, or can the code be easily ported to a simple shell script?

Sorry. I changed my vote to no. I guess the interpreter isn't included on 2MB flash, nor ATM I would be able to write something complex that apply to the router environment, whereas additionally I have no experience at all with sh.

Ok, thanks. You are right that it isn't on 2mb flash firmwares (already run out of space on those routers).

Ok, I think it is now safe to assume that nobody is desperate for us to retain the bwbasic interpreter. It will be removed from the RouterTech firmwares.

This thread will now be locked.

Many thanks to all those who participated in the poll.
