How to edit simple Basic programs outside atari800 emulator?

I currently write simple Basic programs in this way: First I start atari800 emulator:

atari800 -xlxe_rom ATARIXL.ROM -basic_rom ATARIBAS.ROM -basic

This shows the "READY" screen where I can write Basic program. Then I can use Alt+S to save emulator state, later Alt+L to load state. This works and generally is usable for very simple Basic programming.

But I would like to write those Basic programs outside emulator in some normal text editor on my PC (linux) and then "convert" them into something that can be loaded into emulator and run.

How can I do that? Thanks.
