I was happy when they finally came out with Extended Basic. Made programming, testing and de-bugging A LOT EASIER! lol

Chuck - There are descendents of BASIC, such as Microsoft's Visual Basic, still kicking around today, but most serious programming these days is in languages based on C (C++, C#, and so on), or in languages like Java.  The BBeM web site is written mostly in the PHP scripting language (which generates the HTML content of each page)' while relying on JavaScript for certain features.

I remember when my father got us our first computer. It was a Radio Shack TRS-80, "Trash 80." I learned a little about BASIC, but since then, I lost my knowledge of the language. Does anyone know what a computer's programming language is today?

Does this bring back memories. I learned basic using a PET computer. Saving the programs on cassette tapes.

I found this code on the Net. Seems kinda useless, though. In fact, anyone who ran this program on a Teletype or similar paper-based terminal would be quite annoyed by the final little loop!
