(Enhanced) BASIC on POM1 V0.0.2 Win32 version

I'm trying to get BASIC to work on the POM1 Emulator. When I type in E000R I don't get BASIC only E000: 00 and it hangs. Any solutions?

Also with the EnhancedBasic.txt downloaded from this site (Floating Point BASIC) I do a load Ctrl-L, type in the name: ENHANCEDBASIC.TXT, choose ASCII and it loads. Next type in 5800R and and again, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?

I am new to this. I did computers from 1978 onward, starting with a TRS80 Model 1. Never got into assembly languages and as I bought a Replica-1 kit that should arrive within a few weeks and I'm working offshore I thought it would be nice to make myself familiar with the Apple 1 through this emulator.

Anybody who has suggestions please let me know

Best regards

Hi Harry, BASIC is currently

Hi Harry, BASIC is currently not preloaded into the emulator. The ROM is in the rom directory and can be loaded by binary. As for ENHANCEDBASIC.TXT, I will look into the problem and hopefully have a fix for the next release.

Load a BASIC file

aaah, thanks. That is working now, that is the BASIC.ROM. Now I do have various BASIC programs downloaded from this site and the Replica-1 site. How can I read those into POM1? I tried Ctrl-R, name.txt and ASCII but no show. Any other way other then typing them in?

Unfortunately you will have t

Unfortunately you will have to type in the BASIC programs for now. I am thinking about adding a paste method for a future release.

BASIC and POM1

Aaaarghh! OK, I'll start typing. Thanks for the help. I'm still very curious about the Replica-1. I can hardly wait!

Humm

I didn't know about this way of loading, I used to change programs to have that format Pom 1 can load (using txt file):

0300: EF FF 14 83 BA C1 00 FE A2
0308: 00 00 A2 C4 EF FF 11 29 33
Etc...

In this way, in groups of 8 bytes and with address before groups, I could load all programs. But of course it's a really hard work sometimes!
