The Basis Code Development System


9/07/01. We are currently at Basis 12.1.

A Framework for Scientific Program Development

Basis is a system for developing interactive computer programs in Fortran. Using Basis you can create a program that has a sophisticated programming language as its user interface so that the user can set, calculate with, and plot, all the major variables in the program. The program author writes only the scientific part of the program in Fortran, C or C++; Basis supplies an environment in which to exercise that scientific programming which includes an interactive language interpreter, graphics, error recovery, macros, saving and retrieving variables, formatted I/O, and on-line documentation.
