Basic Combined Programming Language

What is Basic Combined Programming Language?
The Basic Combined Programming Language (BCPL) is a computer language that was developed by Martin Richards at Cambridge University in 1966. The language was built on the predecessor Combined Programming Language, which was developed in the early 1960s.

Basic Combined Programming Language was built for small compile size, up to 16 kB, and portability. A data type serves as an integer, character, floating point number or other variable.

One of the key points in the popularity of the Basic Combined Programming Language is that it is purportedly the first language that Brian Kernighan's famous 'Hello World' program was written in the 1970s.

Eventually, the C series of languages arose from earlier and more primitive languages such as Basic Combined Programming Language. BCPL still stands as a simple syntax and design program to show some of the ways modern languages evolved in terms of syntax and usage.
