Before commencing the programming exercises which make up the majority of this book we must first define the language we are going to use. BASIC, in common with all computer languages, exists in a number of dialects and it is only in the case of very simple programs that one written for one computer will run without modification on another. The generally accepted “standard” form of BASIC is known as Microsoft (TM) and it is around this version of the language that these programming examples are designed. BASIC consists of a number of “reserved” keywords and symbols. These are bound together in a formal structure of statements which are always preceded by a number known as a “line number”.
