Check out the DDS-BASIC translator to C by Diomidis Spinellis, and its
companion interpreter. It's written in a byte-code language implemented
in C, so it should be easy to maintain :-).
The DDS-BASIC to C compiler is available as the program "dds" in the 1991
Obfuscated C Code Contest winners, and the interpreter is available in the
1990 winners. Both are ftp'able from uunet.
Sorry, couldn't resist :-). Actually, this is the only publicly available
BASIC->C translator I'm aware of...

Vaxes and translates Nixdorf's version of Basic. -John]
