Just got a //c, external floppy drive, 12" Apple color
composite monitor and am ImageWriter II printer for
free on NYC craigslist. Love that list. The 'puter
came with a box of over 100 program floppies and
backups. The //c tutorial is a hoot. It also came with
a "Getting Down to BASIC" floppy. Does anyone here
program or have programmed the //c using BASIC and is
this tutorial all I'll need to learn BASIC for the

RE: programming a //c

Have you thought about getting into ProDOS?
Pick up the Apple DOS Programmer's Manual and
the ProDOS Supplement Manual for the //e
series computers. This is all compatible with
a //c. Maybe pick up some ProDOS Software such
as AppleWorks, etc. It's a little easier to
work with, I think.

If you are the same william from NYC, then welcome back! If you are not the same, then hello just the same...

If you need something for your //c, I have a spare one. I do not know if it works, but it may be good for parts if you need it.

Hey, woogle,

I'll look through the software and see what's there. I have AppleWorks and I'll check it out. And I'll look into ProDos. Thanks for the info.
