OH YES, I remind very well that time! I learned programming in "BASIC" and made any program BETTER, adapted it to my needs, as it was very easy with "Basic"! ALREADY +/- 33 years ago, LOL ;) Monochrome Monitors (ONLY green...) and ONLY 8k of Memory (OK, 16k with upgrade...) with cassettes who needed to get tuned the magnet head sometimes for results, ===> OMG! <=== BUT #FUN :)
