What is QuickBasic?


Definition for: QuickBasic, according to http://www.computeruser.com ...

A fast compiler of BASIC under MS-DOS; later known as MS-BASIC. Developed by Microsoft, it adds some advanced features to BASIC. A version of QuickBASIC called QBASIC, which does not produce standalone executables, is provided with later versions of MS-DOS.



For some people...

"QuickBasic is a product of Microsoft Corporation. It contains quite a lot of commands that can help in creating software programs and games. The only limit is your imagination. These commands, like any other languages, are typed in QB environment line by line to be compiled by the compiler and then executed... thus creating an output. QB Programs are made out of many many lines of commands or codes that are typed inside QB to be executed."

And for others...

"QBasic is Microsoft's version of the popular BASIC programming language. BASIC stands for Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. The Q in QBasic stands for Quick. There are many different versions of BASIC but most have become obsolete. GW-BASIC and BASICA are two examples."

But we'll finish with this jewel, thanks to the efforts of Googlism:
