What is a BAS file
Source code that is written in the BASIC programming language are typically saved in a text file using the BAS extension. Even though BASIC was developed in the mid-1960s, there are still program that can read and edit BAS files.
BAS files contain code in the Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code (BASIC) programming language. This language was developed and introduced for non-scientists to be able to manipulate computers. The code in the BAS file is saved in a plain text format.
Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open BAS documents:
- BBC BASIC for Windows (Windows)
- Blitz Research BlitzMax (Windows, Mac & Linux)
- FreeBASIC (Windows)
- Microsoft Visual Studio (Windows)
- PowerBASIC (Windows)
- PureBasic (Windows)
- SoftMaker Office (Windows)
- True BASIC (Windows)
