BASIC Translator I am looking for a copy of this ancient softaware

Hello All,

I am looking for a copy of the software BASIC Translator or COMPAQ BASIC Translator or OPENVMS BASIC Translator

We still have Basic programs written in OPENVMS BASIC for the ALPHA SERVER and we are looking for the fastest way to upgrade them.

Any suggestion will be thanked

   To what would you like to translate these BASIC programs?

   "upgrade them" to _what_?

Anything newer.
Java, C#, would be best.
Anything is better than basic
Do you have the translator?

   Running on what?  Hardware?  OS?

   For what?

   I've never heard of a BASIC-to-Java or BASIC-to-C# translator.  I'd
be a little amazed if such a thing exists.  Have you any evidence for
the existence of such a translator?  And, if it did exist, then I might
be more worried about OS differences than which trendy language will
save you from the dreaded BASIC.

Hi  dangalg,
I never knew about thus, but I just googled and found there is a very old BASIC Translator, no idea how it may be useful.

It is Compaq BASIC Translator (formerly it was the DIGITAL BASIC Translator), This software is used to translate VAX BASIC and DEC BASIC programs to Visual Basic programs for Windows.

Please check the HP link below and you may want to download and try with the Evaluation copy.
