The first easy-to-use programming language made in the 1960s when Microcomputers made their debut. A very easy language to grasp. The language practically paths out commands for a computer to do. It is very capable of performing mathematics which are the main basis for Microprocessing.

1. Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code: A line-oriented, limited programming language invented in the 1960s for the purpose of teaching university students to program computers.

Each line of BASIC code must be preceded by a number, which serves as a label for the GOTO statement.

The type of a BASIC variable is determined by a suffix. For example, A$ is a string, while A% is an integer.

2. Any programming language that borrows a few things from BASIC, even if it is also heavily influenced by other programming languages, such as Pascal. Includes QBASIC, FreeBASIC, PureBASIC, Visual Basic, and DarkBASIC, and other similar programming languages. These BASICs frequently add support for functions and user-defined types, and they also frequently don't allow user-defined types or arrays to be passed as arguments to functions.

Such languages are typically surrounded by communities that eschew the sort of structured programming that is mandatory in the majority of other programming languages. As such, parallel arrays are preferred over user-defined types, GOSUB statements are preferred over functions, single-line IF statements in conjunction with GOTO are popular even in BASICs that support block IF statements, and GOTO is often used when a loop statement would suffice and be more readable. Even when control structures are used, it is rare to see any sort of indentation of the code that goes within a construct. A notable exception to this tendency is the Visual Basic community.

A similar programming language is INTERCAL.

Likened to children, a 'basic' is a term used to describe someone with attributes of idiocy, foolishness and child-like behaviour. A 'basic' commonly has little to no intelligence, and struggles to break social barriers. A 'basic' often reverts to exaggeration and deceit to over come these social barriers and gain a mild sense of acceptance within his/her friendship circles.

Mr Jones snr: 'Shut up you spoilt child, I hate your basic demands'
