 PlayBasic Tutorial: Into to IF / Then and IF /ENDIF statements

By: Kevin Picone Added: March 21st, 2017

PlayBasic Tutorial: Into to IF / Then and IF / ENDIF statements ( 2017/03/21)

    This #tutorial walks the new coder through the IF / THEN and IF / ENDIF statement pairs which are used to selectively execute sections of the code, based upon the result of the comparison operators. IF statements actually allow changes in execution control, so they act upon the comparison, but it's just easier to think of them as part of the comparisons landscape when learning programming.

 PlayBasic Tutorial: Hello World

By: Kevin Picone Added: February 18th, 2017

PlayBasic Tutorial: Hello World - 2017-02-19

Hi BASIC programmers in this tutorial we take a quick look at using the PRINT command in PlayBasic. The video shows the new programmer how the classic "Hello World" program would appear in the PlayBasic programming language. Beyond that the video looks into some other commands such as SYNC, WAITKEY, INK, RGB, LOADFONT and SetCURSOR and gives some basic tips on using the HELP and compiling programs.

So after this video, you'll learn enough to do something but most likely get yourself into more trouble.. But that's ok.. Learning to program can feel a lot like walking around in a dark room full hammers at times. You bang your head more than once and generally over and over and over again..

Well, have fun..
