MBASIC is the Microsoft BASIC implementation of the BASIC programming language for the CP / M operating system on the 8- bit Intel 8080 processor. MBASIC is a successor to the original Altair BASIC interpreter, who was one of Microsoft's first products. MBASIC was one of the two versions of the BASIC programming language, with the Osborne 1 computer was shipped. The simpler, thus also less memory -consuming OBASIC was often delivered with MBASIC together.
MBASIC is an interpreter. The compiler BASCOM, also from Microsoft, but processed almost the same language. Often software was created under MBASIC and tested and then subsequently translated by BASCOM in machine language, which was then delivered.
