The goal of this book, is to expose first-year graduate students to a wide range of programming language paradigms and issues, so that they can understand the literature on programming languages and even conduct research in this field. The book does not focus on any one language, or even on a few languages; it mentions, at least in passing, over seventy languages.

QuickBasic and QBasic are popular programming languages for beginners. While its lack of power makes it unsuitable for many applications, it is an invaluable learning tool. This book will cover the usage of QBasic and most of it's functions.
BASIC was developed in 1963 at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire as a teaching language. The language taught here, BASIC, is easier to learn than others as its commands are similar to English and has a simple set of rules for entering them.
