I've put up a new version, v2.4.12.
This one has a switch to turn off the file I/O safety features that prevent programs from reading/writing files outside of the current directory.
Of course they're the same settings that stop l33t hax0r5 from writing Basic4GL programs to delete your System32 directory, so I strongly recommend leaving it on, unless you really trust the person saying "d00d, cut & past3 th1s and cl1x run.. tru5t m3!!!1!"
Also has a DeleteFile() command (which doesn't work when safety features are enabled).
That is awesome! The ability to read and write files (especially read) will allow for much more functional utility type programs (audio players, text editors, file organizers, etc...). I think that the balance you've struck between security and functionality could help broaden the Basic4gl user base.
