Retro for iOS



RETRO 12 is the latest incarnation of the language. It is not compatible with prior versions (see below for the current release of the RETRO 11 for iOS).

The environment is clean, with a dark, solarized based color scheme. It provides for a more literate approach, where code is intermixed with documentation. (The code gets extracted from fenced code blocks. The source is kept in Markdown format.)

This is a port of Retro to iOS. It provides a standard virtual machine running the lastest (11.7.1) release with most of the libraries preloaded.

At the core is a lightly tweaked version of the standard C implementation of Ngaro, with a purely native interface written in Objective-C.
