SmileBASIC Reference Manual?
I have the 52 page manual for SmileBASIC, a BASIC interpreter for the Nintendo 3DS but it doesn't explain all the commands and functions of SmileBASIC. Is there a comprehensive reference manual available somewhere?

If the First Presbyterian Church is nicknamed First Pres,
why isn't the First Methodist Church nicknamed First Meth?

RE: SmileBASIC Reference Manual?
There is also a 40-page InstructionList.pdf: http://smilebasic.com/en/reference/

I had been hoping to use this on a Nintendo 2DS, which apparently used to be possible (https://www.hpmuseum.org/forum/thread-12144-page-2.html).
But this page http://smilebasic.com/en/buynow/ implies that Smilebasic is not available on the Nintendo 2DS or Nintendo Switch. The 2DS is meant to run most programs that a 3DS can, but will they sell it?

It says for 3DS family systems, which I believe includes the 2DS?

Thanks! That's just what I was looking for. I don't have any Nintendo system now but SmileBASIC looks like it's good enough to get me to buy one.

The 2DS runs everything the 3DS can. The one thing to watch out for is if a game says "New Nintendo 3DS Only", which means you need a New 3DS(XL) or a New 2DSXL to play it, due to requiring the more powerful hardware in the "New" model. There is only a very small number of such high profile releases, though, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and Fire Emblem Warriors being among the most noteworthy. So if SmileBASIC doesn't say it needs a "New" 3DS, then a 2DS (the original non-folding one) will run it just fine too. Just access the eshop and download it.
