Question:
Is the BASIC language an easy or a hard computer language to learn?



Replies:
BASIC is generally considered one of the easiest languages to learn, although it depends a lot on what you are trying to do and the hardware you are using. Some more complicated tasks require calling assembly code subroutines that can be the most difficult of languages.
