Abstract:

The BASIC Instructional Program BIP is a hands-on laboratory that teaches elementary programming in the BASIC language. This manual is the students main source of information about the BIP system and the BASIC language. The manual is organized as a reference document aimed at students with no previous programming experience. Section I introduced the student to the course itself. Section II begins with an explanation of programming in general. Discussions of programming concepts such as input and variables are followed by the specification of the BASIC statements used to implement them. The syntax and sample programs are used as illustrations. Section III lists and explains the commands that control the BIP system. Some are identical to standard BASIC commands e.g., RUN, LIST, and others give access to the unique features of BIP. The glossary lists all the specialized terms used in the manual, explains their use briefly, and gives references to the sections where detailed information can be found.
