QuickBASIC is a programming language that is part of the Microsoft QuickBASIC Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It's an evolution of the earlier BASIC languages — intended for beginners, but powerful enough for professional programmers. Enhanced with structured programming constructs and support for modular code design, QuickBASIC made it easier to write more complex programs than its predecessors by providing libraries and debugging tools. The IDE included an editor with syntax highlighting and autocomplete features plus a compiler that turned source files into standalone executable binaries. Although no longer widely used since it was superceded by Visual Basic in the 1990s, QuickBASIC remains notable in computing history as a tool that helped many people learn to program on early PCs running DOS operating systems.
