True Basic

Introduced in the 1980s, True BASIC is a structured programming language. It was designed to improve and simplify the process of software development through clear syntax, strong static typing and no requirement for header files. As an evolution of the original BASIC (Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) that was widely used in early microcomputers, True BASIC integrated more advanced features such as user-defined types, procedures with local variables and recursive functions into its base language construct. This made it possible for users to develop complex applications while still maintaining simplicity for new programmers entering the field. While not as prevalent today as it once was due to competition from other languages like Python or JavaScript, True BASIC remains a teaching tool in computer science curricula thanks to its ease of learning combined with enough power for real-world projects without overwhelming novices.
