*No one* in the BASIC world uses line numbers anymore.  Why would you
want to?

If you just want basic, get freebasic from

Personally I can't see any reason to use any dialect of BASIC over
Python.  If you pine for the bad old days of jumping to random line
numbers, maybe just create a list of function objects in python (a call
table) and call a random one.
