The only real note I have is that it does have differences from QuickBASIC.

    *  Default (DEF###) type of not explicitly declared variables
    * INTEGER's size
    * Function calling
    * Arrays not declared
    * Variables with same names as keywords
    * Alignament/Padding of TYPE fields
    * Fixed-len strings
