zmakebas converts text files containing Sinclair Spectrum Basic
programs (as plain old ASCII) into tokenised Basic saved in .TAP
format, ready to run on an emulator or the real thing. It also
optionally provides labels as an alternative to line numbers. It's
mainly for Unix/Linux but should be fairly portable.

There are various versions of zmakebas around nowadays with varying
version numbers, and I am deliberately staying out of the way of that.

Version 1.2b fixes a DEF FN bug in 1.2a. Which (kinda) fixed a DEF FN
bug in 1.2. And no, I would not be surprised if there's eventually a
1.2c fixing a DEF FN bug in 1.2b. It's turtles all the way down

It would be fair to say that I have FN had it with DEF FN.
