HELLO WORLD.
Once you have installed JBASE, launch the JBASE Shell (jsh) program so that we can start programming in Jbase Basic. First though, we need to create a directory where our source files will reside. We will have them in C:\JBASE_SOURCES. Open command prompt and type jsh.

On the jsh prompt, use the command CREATE-FILE to create the directory C:\JBASE_SOURCES as shown below.

Where the key word DATA is used to create a directory. Check in your drive C:\ if the directory has been created. You should find a directory with a single .jbase_header file. Remember if this was unix, this file would be hidden since any file whose name begin with a .is a hidden file in unix.

You can use the LIST command to check the contents of the directory.

You should get no records listed.

Now open your favorite editor and create a Hello World program. Save it as HELLO in the folder you just created.

Compile the program by running the command BASIC C:\JBASE_SOURCES HELLO . This simply means that we are using BASIC to compile the program HELLO that is in the folder C:\JBASE_SOURCES.

Next catalog the program you just compiled.

Then run.
