I'd echo the previous poster. BASIC is a bad idea for so many reasons,
far beyond just the usual language biases people have. BASIC teaches
really bad habits. It's "considered harmful". ;)

I'm not sure what you mean by this? Are you typing RUN at the $ prompt?
Most interpreted languages require a "shebang" as the first line in your
code - the bit that tells the script where to find its interpreter. It
usually looks like this: #!/usr/local/mylanguageoftheweek/interpreter

Erm. You tell us. I'll wager no one else here has used BWBasic. :)

Coding instructions? Where do you wish to start? What are you coding?

Not sure I've been helpful, but then you have left me quite confused. :P
