American software company Walrusoft, Inc., of Gainesville, Florida, was founded and staffed by research chemist Louis R. Wallace and computer scientist David P. Darus. The company name was a portmanteau of their surnames, i.e. not particularly inspired by the sea mammal of the same name.

Walrusoft's main product was BASIC 8 (1986), a BASIC programming language extension for the Commodore 128 home/personal computer. BASIC 8 was published by Patech Software, Inc.
