Information about True Basic: John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz invented the BASIC programming language in 1964 for use at Dartmouth College. They made it freely available to everyone who wanted to learn how to program computers.

In 1983 they created True BASIC to incorporate and showcase all the exciting new developments they had added to their language, which had now become a world standard. It was designed to be both easy to use for beginners and powerful for advanced programmers. More people in the world use BASIC than any other programming language. The Student Edition True Basic 2.72 that you will copy in the laboratory and use in the course is identical to the full-featured language system with two exceptions:

  • New programs are limited to 150 lines
  • The utilities used to create independent programs for resale are not included.
  • More information about the program can be obtained as follows:
