A maybe 10 second search got this:

and this:
http://hackaday.com/2012/05/01/arduino-basic-interpreter-using-lcd-keyboard-and-sd/

and this:

and a few more before results from this forum made the list. Your mileage may vary.

Interpreter Basic is a ancient and cruel form of torture supported by masochists and the ingnorant.
I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

Mostly the latter.

Pass the code as string and the library executes it? I don't necessarily need the shell that many interpreters provide

BASIC is sorta all about the shell...

As for the provided code, it didn't work! And it's obvious that that is not actually a basic interpreter, but only a "compiler" that translates BASIC code into C code!  And it needs more comments!

And I actually heard that they encourage the use of GOTO statements.  ;)

Yup. When your business package crashes you maybe load a variable or two and type GOTO some-line-number to keep running. Ain't life good?
