Disk Extended Color Basic

Microsoft's Disk Extended Color BASIC (DECB) is an expanded version of its earlier Color BASIC for the TRS-80 Color Computer series. It introduced features like disk support, allowing programs to be loaded and saved from mass storage devices. The language was widely used in the 1980s for creating software on RadioShack's machines. DECB also enhanced graphics commands, added new sound capabilities, and extended the available memory space compared to its predecessor. Despite being designed for a specific line of computers, DECB has enjoyed occasional use among retro enthusiasts working with these vintage systems or emulators replicating their environment.
