AmigaBASIC was a BASIC programming language implementation for the Amiga, designed and written by Microsoft. AmigaBASIC shipped with AmigaOS versions 1.1 to 1.3. It succeeded ABasiC, which was included in AmigaOS 1.0 and 1.1, and it was replaced with ARexx, a REXX-style scripting language, from AmigaOS version 2.0 onwards.
AmigaBASIC provided not only the common BASIC language, but also attempted to provide an easy-to-use API for the Amiga's unique graphics and sound capabilities. OBJECT commands, for example, made it easy to create moving objects - sprites and bobs that could be drawn with an external drawing program, Object editor, that was supplied with AmigaBASIC.
