ZBASIC is probably the most popular BASIC compiler ever written for the TRS‑80. It holds the distinction of being one of the few programs originally created for the TRS‑80 that is still being developed in some form.

The first version of ZBASIC was written in 1979 by Andrew Gariepy for the Model I and sold by Simutek Computer Products. ZBASIC began appearing in Simutek advertisements in 1980. It originally cost $99.00 for the tape version and $129.00 for the disk version.
