Small Basic – Make it Easy to Read


Small Basic gives you a lot of freedom to format the different statements in your source code.

For example, you can use white spaces and empty lines to make your code easier to read. You can also add comments anywhere in the program to explain what your code does.

Although your running program doesn’t care about these additions, the way your source code’s laid out in the editor can make it much easier to read.

Of course, if you decide to post your Small Basic programs online, others will see it and try to understand your code, so be sure to use comments and empty lines to make it easier to read! It’ll also help you build great habits as a programmer!
