What do I do to turn a text document into a program written in BASIC
Just rename the file from *.txt to *.bas and execute with your compiler. Basic source files are nothing more than text documents but with a different file extension so the compiler recognizes them.

Just sometimes you will get some funny characters that are invisible in the text that cause problems but the basic interpreter hould pick these up.
Note pad is good to write the text into as it is good at NOT putting these strange hidden characters in.
