In sometimes, you may want to know the ASCII code of a word, sometimes you just want to know it, but sometimes you need it to do work in your program.
Today, I'm going to show you how to make a ASCII dictionary make from BASIC!
What is BASIC?
BASIC(or Beginners' All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) is a high-level, easy to use, simple programming language. It was designed by John G. Kemeny and Thomas E. Kurtz and released at Dartmouth College in 1964.
Okay, enough for introducing, let's start to coding!
Making the dictionary
First, create a BASIC project in repl.it, just click on "new repl" button and choose BASIC(Beta) as the progrmaming language for the project.
After create the project, you should have entered to the project, in this time, type this command:
10 PRINT "ASCII Dictionary"
FOR command or use the
Then, type the command down below:
20 INPUT "Key:" ; Key
INPUT command read the value that user entered(kinda like Python) and assigned to the
Now, type this command, it will print the ASCII value of the key that user has entered:
30 PRINT ASC(Key)
Finally, type this command:
40 GOTO 20
GOTO command will do the command in the line
20 and it will make a loop(Like I was say before)
And...Done! You have make a ASCII dictionary with only 4 commands. Very simple and easy, right?
