Programs like The Beagle Compiler allow AppleSoft BASIC or other Apple II BASIC variants to be compiled. How do the compilers compare in terms of speed, compatibility, and features?

    I bet most, if not all of them, just turn the program into a list of BASIC ROM calls, i.e. skip the tokenizing and interpreting stages. Beyond that some seem to offer some extensions the the (ahem) basic language. – user Aug 1 '19 at 8:21

    If you are asking "how do they compare", at least list the compilers you are interested in. – dirkt Aug 3 '19 at 19:57
