This programming language may be used to instruct a computer to perform a task.
Palo Alto Tiny BASIC has some features that distinguish it from other Tiny BASICs:
NEXTloop. Like in Microsoft BASIC, the upper and lower bounds of the loop are set on loop entry, and did not change during the loop, so if one of the bounds is based on a variable expression, changing the variable do not change the bound. The
STEPmodifier is optional.

;to separate statements, rather than the colon
:common in BASICs.
- A single numeric one-dimensional array, with the variable name
- The statement
STOPin addition to
- The use of
#for not-equals in comparisons, as opposed to
Palo Alto Tiny BASIC was adapted for many implementations:

- Level I BASIC (1977)
- Sharp PC-1211 BASIC (1980)
- Astro BASIC (1982, by Jamie Fenton)
