Re: Small Basic
"I've used Small Basic back in school days. It's more like dumbed-down Visual Basic ... but certainly not even close to a BASIC dialect (compare it with Microsoft's own QBASIC)."
QBASIC was a massive extended and basterdised version of Dartmouth BASIC. ALmost every version of BASIC most people have seen was extended in some way to accommodate the new features found on the hardware, especially back in the days of 8-bit computing. There was a fairly generic MSBASIC + compiler on CP/M.
