Will make EXE file feature be added in the future? (New Features)

The way that BASIC256 is written (using the QT tool kit for graphics and many dependent libraries for sound and TTS) will make it difficult to compile the BASIC256 code into a stand alone EXE file. BASIC256 compiles into a intermediary byte code that is then executed by an interpreter.

I have been asked this once before over the years and I do not see a real advantage, given what BASIC256 was originally designed for. Remember this is an educational and cross platform (win/lin/mac) environment. If creating stand alone applications is desired then look at many of the other great (but more complex) languages (c, c++, vb, python...),
