As far as I know, BASIC is not a compiled language, but rather an
interpreted one. So I guess that it is an interpreter you are looking
In this page you'll find some BASIC interpreters:
However, I wouldn't recommend using BASIC. Why did you choose this
language? Someone told you to do so? Maybe python will be better for
your needs.
