Rocky Mountain Basic

Rocky Mountain BASIC was an early interpreted language for the HP 2000C timeshare computer system in the late 1960s. The language was developed by TRW Systems Group and used primarily for scientific and engineering calculations. Rocky Mountain BASIC provided support for complex numbers and strings, as well as subroutines, libraries, and flow control structures. The language’s expressiveness made it a popular choice among educational institutions for teaching computer programming concepts.
