Chipmunk BASIC

Chipmunk BASIC is a freeware BASIC interpreter especially suited for the Macintosh OS. One benefit of this particular interpreter is that it includes graphics support on Macintosh computers and availible versions can run on systems as old as Macintosh System 6.0.7. Ports are availible for Linux and Windows but these are strictly command line driven and do not support graphics. One drawback that I see is the program is freeware but not open source. There is a real lack of native open source applications for vintage Macintosh systems and it would be nice to see the source for this interpreter be made availible.
