Your basic program may contain a first line that looks like the title of this section. This may seem strange for Windows users, but this is usual in UNIX. On UNIX systems such a first line tells the operating system, which program to use to execute the program. This is usually /usr/bin/scriba on UNIX systems, but it is not a must The ScriptBasic interpreter may be in a different location or may have different name.

When the interpreter starts the program it sees this first line and ignores it. To ease life of ScriptBasic users this kind of first line is ignored on Windows systems.
