I'm quite sure that it is possible to find more or less suitable BASIC
implementations lying around. For UNIX style OSes there is for instance the
Bywater BASIC (bwBASIC) https://sourceforge.net/projects/bwbasic/ and
Yeat Another BASIC (yaBASIC) http://www.yabasic.de/.

There is a fair amount of HPBASIC programs around which would be good if one
could run. The main problem should be porting the GPIB interface.

Anyway, for "normal" BASIC programs, there is certainly options around.

BTW, I have a Euroboard (160x100mm) computer with a i8052AHBASIC V1.1 chip.
Just toss power on it, a serial port to the propper pins and I have a little
BASIC engine. This little board also has the EPROM socket, 8255s and other
goodies, so it is a real little powerhouse for its time. ;O)
The manuals for the BASIC (very detailed) is online. ;O)
