QBASIC is a simple programming language. It had been made and launched in 1964 by John G. Thomas and Kemenny E. Kurtz. QBASIC is currently owned by Microsoft. QBASIC stands for Quick Beginners’ All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. It offers simple instructions like CLS, Input, Print, Let, GOTO, IF…THEN etc. QBASIC has Characterized the interface (CUI).
It is comparable to MS-DOS. Almost all the Microsoft OS can run QBASIC. Android is a Linux-based Mobile Operating System. It is found in many Samsung mobile phones like Samsung Galaxy Series. All of the PC Tabs use Android OS Almost. Android users enjoy many advanced functions that aren’t within PCs. Imagine if they could create small programs in their mobile phones?
Yes, they can by using QBASIC. But, there is no QBASIC software on Google Play. How will they create programs? It’s simple with aDOSBox. It really is an Android DOS Emulator. The very first thing you will need to do is download aDOSBox (Android DOSbox) to your Android Device. After it is installed, it can be opened by you and explore the app.
The font maybe too small, but it is readable. Some phones have a small display screen, so there might be a problem understanding the text messages. Now, the ultimate thing you need is the QBASIC application. That is a Windows program, not Android. You might have the QB. EXE or qbasic.exe file on your computer.
Copy it to your SD Card. Make a folder called “QBASIC” and move the QBASIC program to it. Type the command word ‘CLS’ and press enter. After that, /sdcard/qbasic shall be mounted as local listing. You’ll be taken to D: directory i.e. SDCARD. C: is Phone Memory and D: is the SDCARD.
Type the name of the QBASIC application present inside the QBASIC folder. After another or two, the QBASIC display screen appears! You shall have to learn how to go the mouse pointer yourself. It’s not that difficult. You need to allow Mouse Emulation feature first. When you slide your finger to right, the mouse pointer moves right. Take it to the desired place and press anywhere on the screen to click on the menu or area.
My phone display is small, so the font size is small and the images are not clear. However, QBASIC works the same way on your mobile phone such as the computer. It can save you programs, run them, change background color, create subs etc. If you wish to exit QBASIC, select Document, and then Leave then. The knowledge is amazing in a Tablet.
