Summary
  • Microsoft QuickBASIC 3.0 (QB3) and Borland Turbo BASIC 1.0 (TB) are the newest and most popular BASIC compilers. The two languages make microcomputer programming easy for novices who need fast results. Code size and speed are very close between the two products. Both require an IBM PC or compatible with minimum 256Kbytes RAM and one floppy disk drive. A comparison of documentation, floating-point math, editors, environment, language innovations, memory models, screen handling, interfaces, debugging, and price reveals the languages are similar. QuickBASIC 3.0 proved to be the more dependable of the two products. List price for both QB3 and TB is $99.
