Summary

Summary

This textbook and guide to structured programming in BASIC on the IBM personal computer, presents BASIC as a serious tool for professional quality programming and business problem solving. It stresses logic control structures, including sequence selection and iteration structures, but avoids the use of branching statements. Methods of algorithm representation are emphasized, including flowcharts, pseudocode and hierarchy charts. The book also explains sequential and random access for reading, writing and rewriting data files.
