Sadly, LibreOffice uses a different version of Basic that doesn't seem

couple of times people have been urged to upgrade to new branches to
avoid known issues that were fixed in the newer branch but that was
almost entirely preventative rather than reactive. I think LibreOffice
even allows a few other languages to be used, such as Python.
I downloaded the package LibreOffice, because I am currently the a Visual
Basic and MsAccess programmer.
Please elaborate: Is it possible to use LO to write free-standing BASIC
software? (NOT Visual Basic!) If so, a little information as to how that
can be done would be appreciated. Every so often I would like to
code something simple to make my life easier, but the simple programs
like BASIC and Turbo Pascal (early versions) just don't seem to exist
anymore. I'm 75, and I just don't have the ambition to learn Python,
altho I think it might do the job.
Blessed are the peacemakers..for they shall be shot at from both sides.
