KidBASIC is an easy to use version of BASIC designed to teach young children the basics of computer programming. It has a built-in graphics mode which lets them draw pictures on screen in minutes, and a set of detailed, easy-to-follow tutorials that introduce programming concepts through fun exercises.
With version 0.4.1, performance and stability under Linux and Unix systems has been significantly enhanced. New graphical functions are available, and the keyboard can be tested to see which key is being pressed. This release allows simple video games, like pong and breakout, to be programmed. More examples have been included and tutorials have been updated to incorporate the new features.
