GW Basic Certification Training Course Overview

GW-BASIC is a dialect of the BASIC programming language developed by Microsoft from IBM BASICA. It is functionally identical to BASICA, but is a fully self-contained executable and does not need the Cassette BASIC ROM. It was bundled with MS-DOS operating systems on IBM PC compatibles by Microsoft. Microsoft also sold a BASIC compiler, BASCOM, compatible with GW-BASIC, for programs needing more speed. The language is suitable for simple games, business programs and the like. Since it was included with most versions of MS-DOS, it was also a low-cost way for many aspiring programmers to learn the fundamentals of computer programming.With the release of MS-DOS 5.0, GW-BASIC's place was eventually taken by QBasic, the interpreter part of the separately available QuickBASIC compiler.
