 BASIC programming language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As a result, knowledge of BASIC became relatively widespread for a computer language and BASIC was implemented by a number of manufacturers, and became fairly popular on newer minicomputers like the DEC PDP series and the Data General Nova.
Notwithstanding the language's use on several minicomputers, it was the introduction of the Altair 8800 microcomputer in 1975 that truly spread BASIC.
Though it is somewhat difficult to consider this language to be BASIC, because of the significant shift in paradigm towards an object-oriented and event-driven language.

 Encyclopedia: BASIC programming language
A programming language or computer language is a standardized communication technique for expressing instructions to a computer.
Programming languages of the era tended to be designed, like the machines on which they ran, for specific purposes such as scientific formula processing.
The original BASIC language was invented in 1964 by John Kemeny (1926–93) and Thomas Kurtz (1928–) at Dartmouth College and implemented by a team of Dartmouth students under their direction.

 The Basic Programming Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Basic is a very powerful language as a tool for the novice programmer.
However, as long as the emphasis is on the techniques of programming and problem solving, the specific syntax is easy to follow.

 The Visual Basic Programming Language   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Even though people tend to say Visual Basic's compiler is far behind the compilers of Pascal and C, it has earned itself the status of a professional programming language, and has almost freed BASIC of the reputation of a children's language.
Visual Basic also has the ability to develop programs that can be used as a front end application to a database system, serving as the user interface which collects user input and displays formatted output in a more appealing and useful form than many SQL versions are capable of.
Visual Basic's main selling point is the ease with which it allows the user to create nice looking, graphical programs with little coding by the programmer, unlike many other languages that may take hundreds of lines of programmer keyed code.

The language was first developed solely as a standards document, written primarily by Dennis Allison, a member of the Computer Science faculty at Stanford University.
He had seen BASIC on minicomputers, and felt it would be the perfect match for new machines like the MITS Altair 8800 which had just been released in 1975.
For the implementation a interpretive language (IL) is used.

BASIC fits well with the idea that it should be as simple as possible, but no simpler.
That programming language has some ideas that were pretty interesting to me coming from BASIC, but it became clear to me after a while that C programming is more about twiddling the drudgery bits and details than it is about expressing ideas.

 BASIC programming language at opensource encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
BASIC's name, coined in classic, computer science tradition to produce a nice acronym, stands for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code,¹ tied to the name of an unpublished paper by the language's co-inventor, Thomas Kurtz (the name thus having no relation to C. Ogden's series "Basic English").
The language was based partly on FORTRAN II and partly on Algol 60, with additions to make it suitable for timesharing and, later, matrix arithmetic.
Almost immediately after its release, computer professionals started deriding BASIC as too slow and too simple;² such elitism is a recurring theme in the computer industry.

Kemeny, who later became president of Dartmouth and died in 1992, and Kurtz were the authors of Basic, which Kurtz said went on to be the most widely used computer language in the world.
Basic was based on Fortran and Algol and was first implemented on a General Electric 225 mainframe, which supported multiple terminals.
Kurtz said the companies that first started making personal computers decided they would have to have a version of Basic on their machines because it was a relatively small language -- there weren't a lot of extra features on it.

 Ladder + BASIC Programming Language
Ladder Logic programming has its strength in handling single bit digital I/O programming, but it is at best an awkward language for data processing where numerical data needs to be manipulated.
On the other hand, desktop computers are typically programmed by high-level languages such as BASIC, C, PASCAL, C++, Java etc. These powerful programming languages are designed for data processing, but they are not oriented towards flipping single bit digital I/Os.
By combining these two most important branches of programming languages into one single, seamless entity, we had invented the industry first "Ladder + BASIC" language that can easily handle sophisticated tasks with just a few lines of codes.
