Every BASIC programmer should study this guide before writing another line of code.

Using the steps outlined in this guide, I was able to rewrite some of my programs to be 60% smaller! This also makes the code run faster, a nice side effect.

There is certainly more in this guide than you can pick up in an afternoon, but it will definitely get you thinking with compression in mind next time you program.

You think you know everything there is to know in BASIC? This guide will prove you wrong. This is one of the most comprehensive references on optimization and other tricks. With the tricks shown in this guide, you will increase the speed of your programs significantly. The thing I find most appealing about this guide is how very well organized it is. If you only need to know tricks on certain topics, you can jump right to that section of the guide using the table of contents. Download this guide, and you will make great BASIC programs that are as optimized as possible.

This file was the best BASIC programming help file I have used! It really helped me become a good BASIC game programmer and make fast arcade games. Now I can't stand any little bit of code in my programs that isn't as optimized as I know how to do it. Thanks! It is definitely not for beginners, but I would recommend every BASIC game programmer to read this file and follow everything it says for optimization. There are some things that it leaves out, especially pertaining to game programming, like examples of “If-free” algorithms for fast sprite movement, or the use of the “sub()” command. Nonetheless, it is still the best BASIC optimization help file out there.
