The Arduino Zero is the first platform we have supported that has many (more than we knew of) PCBs with the same CPU setup. So we had to make some additions to our BASICtools. We added the ability to support multiple board types for a CPU, and give the user an option to select that. Follow this link to support BASIC on you Arduino Zero.
Our Kickstarter project to bring our BASIC to the Arduino Zero family of boards met its goal. Thank you all. This is a free download for evaluation, personal or educational use. Commercial licenses to include our firmware in you product start at $500.

BASICtools has always used a version of the C pre-processor. That allows you to #include other files, and that has always been used for definitions of hardware registers. As programs grow it is good to break up files into manageable and often reusable pieces. A feature of our MakeItC has always allowed searching of all files included in a project. That feature now exists in the latest BASICtools.
Well snow fell last week up high, and will fall again this weekend at the lake (Tahoe). So it's time for me to finish my long running thermostat project. This will use an ARM stamp along with an ESP8266. WiFi connectivity to at least gather data on the heating system, and could be used to do a Nest replacement.
