It's a real shame that they had to use crap BASIC syntax as a guideline to design their language.
Its more like C/C++ than BASIC. Basic naming convention doesnt allow leading underscores in the names of identifiers, also square braces and curly braces aren't used at all in basic. Function return values using the return keyword. BASIC uses explicit assignment of the returns to the function name. These are C conventions. The only things it seems to take from BASIC is the if..else..then construct and worded operators.
