As an engineer, now retired, I used BASIC for many years, then took
a class in Pascal and wrote some code in Pascal.  You are correct--
all I wanted, in almost all cases, was command-line input and screen
or print (or both) output.  I first wrote BASIC on a teletype machine
connected by acoustic modem to a mainframe somewhere in Texas.

Obviously at that time, Python wasn't available yet. ;-) X-(
