Command tcl.basic Verb: Access/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP
Category TCL (746)
Description invokes the Pick/BASIC compiler, which translates the specified source code into executable object code with "case sensitivity" in effect. This causes the compiler to only accept upper case "keywords".
The "compile" verb allows "keywords" to be in upper or lower case.

For example, with case sensitivity in effect, the variables "TOTAL" and "total" are treated as two separate variables.

See "casing on" and "casing off" for handling case-sensitive input from the terminal.
Syntax basic file.reference itemlist* {(options)}
Options
Example
basic bp testprog
This TCL statement compiles the program "testprog" in the

of "bp".
