    twinBASIC supports Unicode variable names... and color fonts... so... can you...?

    YES, YOU CAN!!





    Yes, yes that is true, thanks twinBASIC.


    I expect this emoji variable name feature to make twinBASIC the most popular programming language among GenZ.

        Dim 😮 as String
        😮 = "Wow!"
        Msgbox 😮

    What's the emoji advice for the old favourite 'use meaningful variable names'?

    For example, if in a variable you want to count carrots, you could use:

    Code:
        Dim 🥕🧮 As Long
    For cellphone number:

    Code:
        Dim 📱🔢 As String

    This is more or less a joke, at least for me.
    Still, "you could".

    Omg I didn't even realize the variable "names" and values.

    What project is closed?

    Yes my emoji code project was a one off joke, not being actively developed...

    But tB is certainly not closed; it's undergoing major reworking to the IDE and compiler, and a new release is expected soon (these updates are given on the tB Discord channel)
