BASIC-256 is an easy to use version of BASIC designed to teach
anybody (especially middle and high-school students) the basics of
computer programming. It uses traditional control structures like
gosub, for/next, and goto, which helps kids easily see how program
flow-control works. It has a built-in graphics mode which lets them
draw pictures on screen in minutes, and a set of detailed,
easy-to-follow tutorials that introduce programming concepts through
fun exercises.
