Revisiting the past -

the standard language spoken throughout the galaxy, Basic was believed to have been derived from several ancient languages, including Dromnyr.


BASIC is a family of high-level programming languages. Originally devised as an easy-to-use programming language, it became widespread on home microcomputers in the 1980s, and remains popular to this day in a handful of heavily evolved dialects. It was devised in 1963 by Profs. John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz of Dartmouth College.
