Back when Wry came out I knew there were functions and subroutines but had no idea how to use functions.

The parser program could actually be pretty awesome if the keywords were finished being mapped out.

I'm not really sure what the purpose of it would be besides perhaps building graphs and trends of QB programs for different genres, coding styles, or whatever.

So, this was originally built to basically extract a usable output from the wry.bas file to create a PHP version of the game? If so, that's fantastic.

        • That definitely is an interesting project and I dig it! I think Wry was actually one of the last files to get added to Pete's QB Site before it went mostly read only. If I would have submitted one... more

            It could be pretty cool to load a well-behaved (as in one that doesn't PEEK and POKE memory) program and actually run it.
