This is version 2.4 of ACE and constitutes a complete distribution.

ACE is a FreeWare Amiga BASIC compiler which, in conjunction with A68K 
and Blink produces standalone executables.
 
The language defines a large subset of AmigaBASIC but also has many 
features not found in the latter such as: turtle graphics, recursion, 
SUBs with return values, structures, arguments, include files, a better 
WAVE command which allows for large waveforms, external references, named 
constants and a variety of other commands and functions not found in 
AmigaBASIC.

This distribution contains Herbert Breuer's complete rewrite of AIDE (ACE's
Integrated Development Environment), as well as my GUI creator, ReqEd.

The main new features in version 2.4 are: Random Files which make use of ACE's
STRUCTs rather than AmigaBASIC's plethora of commands and functions, and
BLOCK..END BLOCK for true statement blocks. 

Common and Global variables have been added which primarily make Subprogram 
Modules (SUBmods) easier to write in some cases.

Improvements have been made to existing features, such as gadgets (GADGET(4)
gives address of last selected gadget, GADGET OUTPUT permits arbitrary 
selection of gadgets), windows (maximum number increased from 9 to 16), 
menus (MENU(2) gives submenu item selected if using GadTools menus - see 
ACE:SUBmods/Menu). See the documentation for details.

The complete set of ACE headers (converted from C headers) and bmaps are 
included. 

A number of useful SUBmods are provided.

There are also numerous bug fixes.

See the history log for more details.
