What makes a computer a computer? Actually, it follows from its name, derived from the word compute - compute. Yes, he has to calculate. But not as a calculator or even a programmable calculator. Computer must give us the opportunity to program complex calculation algorithms, enter the source data and get results not only in the form of numbers, but also texts, charts and graphs.
To solve this problem in the very first computers were built interpreter programming language Basic. It has a million flaws, but there is one distinct advantage - it is easy to understand and use. And so should be the first programming language for beginners, so that they no longer considered something terrible programming and complex. It's almost like a WYSIWYG editor. What you see is what you get. One can write on paper a = 2, b = 5, y = a + b, and on Basic it looks exactly
a = 2
b = 5
y = a + b
And, you can print the result and PRINT y. And no variable declarations , begin, end , etc.
Nano Basic for iPhone and iPad has been designed to connect people to the programming. By definition, it should be free and so is.
The program interface is as simple as the program itself and consists of four tabs:
This version has the following elements of the Basic language:
REM Example of if, goto, gosub
a = 1
b = 2
c = 3
IF c > 2 AND b < 3 THEN PRINT "c > 2"
? A + 100 - (B * C) / 2
? B ^ 5
REM -- SUBROUTINE --
100 PRINT "String 1"; "String 2", A + 100 - (B * C) / 2
200 PRINT "String 3\n"
