Abstract

-25- The Proposed Standard for Basic James United States Computer Annapolis, Harle Naval Academy Services Md. 21402 The cover of Jean Sammet's 1969 book Programming Languages: History and Fundamentals depicted the programming languages forming a tower ol Babel. -In many respects, the large number of dialects of one language. Basic, form their own Babel. Implementations of Basic exist for nearly all general purpose computers from tiny micros to large mainframes. Most new Basics are based on the 1978 Minimal Basic standard. As its name implies, the only standard for Basic is very small and all implementations extend this in their own way. Three committees -- American National Standards Institute (ANSI) X3J2, European Computer Manufacturers Association (ECMA) TC21, and European Workshop on Industrial Computer Systems (EWICS) TC2 -- have cooperated to produce a proposed standard for Basic. An important part of the ANSI standardization process is the public comment period. For the current draft proposed Basic standard, this period extends from March 15 through July 15, 1983. Copies of document X3J2/82-17, available for $20 from X3 Secretariat CBEMA 311 First St., NW Suite 500 Washington, DC 20001 This paper describes many of the features of the proposed standard that
