Anybody,

Where can I find a complete listing of BASIC commands for the Apple 1/Replica 1? The downloadable BASIC manual and Tom's text was good but I would prefer a more complete listing.

Any ideas?

BTW, does anybody know what 'PLOT (x,y)" does on the Replica 1?

BASIC help

Try this page...

It's the complete BASIC manual for the Apple I computer.

The Apple I BASIC had several commands, (including PLOT(x,y)) that did not work. Woz left space for commands in his BASIC that only worked when they developed the Apple II computer. Imagine writing a 4K BASIC program and still leaving room for improvements!!

That's it?!?

Thank you Larry for your propt reply. I've printed out the manual (!)....So that's all there is for the Apple 1 eh?

I don't think I'm that creative of a programmer. Converting older BASIC programs are going to be tough.

Keep in mind that the apple 1

Keep in mind that the apple 1 only had 4 or 8K of RAM. If you had 8K you could load BASIC into RAM but that took 4K of RAM leaving you with only 4K. For a single board computer that had built on video and keyboard port the apple 1 was ahead of its time!

No arguements here...

... I don't have the talent as many others here have (or say they do). I have some ZX-80 sotware code somewhere I was considering porting over for the software pool. May still try it.

Considering the Apple I had a basic "glass teletype" display with no graphics capabilities whatsoever, well... you'd probably be best served by removing all programs using the PLOT command from your porting list right away. ;^)
