BASIC Intermediates

Hey, time goes fast! We’re covering intermediate ground and moving fast! Here is another archivelike page but for the intermediate stuff

  • If-Then and Goto Commands

In This section, we got to introduce the last of our commands, the if then and goto. We showcased a small game in which you took risks to roll a 6 sided die and hopefully not get snake-eyed, or stand.

  • The Small (And Big)Tricks To BASIC

In this section, we saw tricks that CodePress used to create better programs, as well as graphical design. We also saw the Majalo command

  • Referrers and Boxes

In this section, we got to see trap boxes made with if then, goto, and end commands and how it differs from HTML programming.

Hey guys! If you’ve been riding the BASIC rail line, you know what’s next: The Advanced!


Referrers and Boxes

OK, we’ve approached the end of learning new commands, now we’ll actually focus on creating great programs with them. In this post, we’ll cover using trapped boxes with the goto, end, and if-then commands. In this program, we have a trap box:

The Small (And Big) Tricks to BASIC programming

Even though we learn the basics, there must be some little tricks to BASIC:

  • Using The “Majalo” Command To Switch Players

In a player game, you might want to switch between players. A simple 2-person game between player “0” and player “1”  probably is hard to program, but “Majalo”, or the remainder of the quotient, is here to help! You can freely copy this line to use Majalo to switch/alternate between two players:


The % sign should symbol the Majalo command. Even though it might seem confusing at first, This should clear it up: Continue reading The Small (And Big) Tricks to BASIC programming

The Free Coding Experience-Code Guy

Hi Coders, Advanced and Beginners…

Welcome to Code Guy! Our webpage URL is easy:              codeguyblog.wordpress.com

We’ll be posting a few times a day, however, if I put everything I know in this and it’s not Saturday, we’ll have to wait until Saturday, my learning day. We’ll alternate between BASIC and HTML programming for some time, I don’t know if we’ll get to LOGO and stuff, but we’ll see.

First of all, I’ll give you the steps to actually get to the place where you type in commands I teach you. It’s simple:

HTML: The easiest way to do this is to use Microsoft’s Notepad on Windows.  Search Notepad in the Start Menu/Metro mode, and save your file as <name>.html Important: Do not save the file as .txt, the standard. To open and view your HTML program,  go to your location where you saved the file and click “Open In”; Select the browser of your choice.

You may use other tools such as developer/inspect element in browsers and Firebug if you are using Firefox.

BASIC: This is harder. I strongly reccommend this .jar file (I DID NOT create this) to program BASIC: MASICA.jar. However, if you want to use web-based BASIC programming, you can Google “BASIC programming” and you probably will find one.

Happy Coding!
