    I thought of this for a project. I don't know if I would ever bother with it, but how would you guys attack this one.

    I don't think anyone is saying PBP isn't adaquate. We're saying PBC could be better for the hobby level with the full IF...THEN command set.

    I would say $0.00 simply because the ELSE and ENDIF should be considered part of the IF...THEN command set in the first place IMO.

    FWIW,

    The lack of IF...THEN...ELSE...ENDIF in PBC is the most frustrating of all to be missing. I knew they weren't there when I bought and I knew for what I was doing at the time I could live...
