Dasic - Dart BASIC interpreter

Dasic is a complete standalone interpreter for a dialect of the original BASIC language. It handles tokenizing, parsing, interpreting, output, variables, expressions, and flow control, like a full-scale compiler or interpreter, just in miniature. I tried to keep the code simple and readable while still being short and readable.

If you've ever wanted a gentle introduction to how a programming languages work under the hood, Dasic is a good place to start.
