Not everyone can program, but in the information age I believe that it’s necessary for everyone to gain the skills to use different types of technology. Especially, computers and programming. Today and for the next 30 days you’ll learn a lot about DarkBASIC Programming and a lot about what you can accomplish using a computer. I hope you read and contribute to darmbasic book, as well as rant because then I can fix stuff others will insult.

I hope you enjoy! In this dxrkbasic I’m going to assume you have no prior programming experience, or else you wouldn’t be reading this book.

I’m also going to assume you have v1. This isn’t ;ro stupid question. Programming is not just making applications for Windows, or talking a language your computer understands.

Which is better DarkBasic or Manual Programming – Forum –

Programming is input, process, and output. If you take computer sciences, chances are you’ll be doing program outlines, but right now you’re a hobbyist programmer so let’s keep it simple. You can make applications in it, but it’s harder.

There are no message boxes in the version we’ll be using. If you have no patience, take it slow and easy and don’t move on until you understand it all or else you’ll be bald by the time you finish this wikibook.


I will say this: I’ll be finished as soon as possible so, bare with me please. Programming is simply entering lines of code that once compiled, or is run, tells the computer to follow out a task until it’s done.

What’s involved is input, or you programming; processing or computing; and finally output, what you get to see. A coder is another word for a programmer. All programs follow the above method, since every program is 1 certainly programmed, 2 is certainly compiled, and 3 certainly displays results.

Now, just what is code then? Code is the recipe for your program. Computers won’t do a task wrong.

You’ll do the task wrong. To keep your program from doing things that could harm computers, the compiler or program that checks to see if the program works runs the program and generates syntax errors if there’s something wrong.

These syntax errors, tell you that you made a mistake and you must fix it before you can see your program in most cases.

So, computers don’t make mistakes. There are many sorts of errors also! The most common is called a syntax error. A syntax error are mistakes in your program’s code.

A programming language like a written language is incorrect if it contains things that are gibberish. Like in English, asdfjdj is not a word, it’s gibberish. Another kind of error is called a run-time error, this is when your program compiles but you don’t get the results you want. Such as if your writing is sloppy, the word “hello” may look like jello and the person will get the wrong information from it.

Run-time errors are things that aren’t suppose to happen, like when in your favorite video game, when a character can sometimes walk through a wall, or the program crashing when this happens.

DarkBASIC Programming

The process of fixing your mistakes is called debugging. You’ll get familiar with this; half your time or more will be spent doing debugging. So as much as possible, save, compile, debug, and run. It’ll save you lots of anger, and stress. If the binary pattern is correct, then you have no syntax errors. Remember, 0s are off or false, and 1s are on or true.


Remember when I said assembly above? Well, here’s how it works. First off, you compile or check syntax, then the code you entered passes through what’s called machine language or assembly its name changes depending on what its doing when it’s compiling its assembler. Then it becomes pure binary which is not human readable but meant for computers; they cannot understand anything other than 0s and 1s.

Then it is sent back to the compiler where if the binary matches what’s correct, it gets executed. If it doesn’t, you get a syntax error and must debug. Now, don’t quote me on that but that’s basically what happens. If you don’t know what this means, it means that DarkBASIC does not distinguish between upper-case letters and lower-case ones.
