True Basic by Problem Solving

£19.99

Product description

Designed for people with no programming experience, this book shows how to use true BASIC (Version 2.0) to solve problems and tap its potential as a serious scientific problem-solving language of the first degree. It is based on many years of teaching programming to the first year university students with no computing experience and is ideally suited as a self-instructional guide. The author has included many interesting, real-world problems with examples taken from science, engineering, business, and biology. A large number of exercises, most of which have solutions provided, illuminate True BASIC's problem-solving potential and develop the user's programming skill. Such applications as simulation, modelling, and numerical methods are also introduced. True BASIC is one of the best high level languages for beginners. It retains all the simplicity of the earliest versions of BASIC and has superb machine-independent graphics, but has modern control structures (DO-WHILE, Block IF, etc.), named subroutines with arguments and local variables, modules, pictures, and optional line numbers.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
