In the early days of home computing, it was thought that individuals would want to learn how to program their computer in order to create individualized pieces of software that were not being written by software companies. To this end, several programming languages were marketed at home users. Pilot was one of these languages - although it was most frequently seen in educational settings. The main difficulty with Pilot (and others like it) was the fact that the code couldn't be compiled which meant that for another individual to take advantage of your software creation, he or she would also have to own the programming language.
