Apple IIe int basic

Hello there,

I have made a work floppy from master with init command. Everything is okay, I can boot, made catalog, save etc...  with this floppy.

But I cant run program writed with integer basic (language not available error) !

How could I correct this ? Not found any information in dos 3.3 manual nor to the internet...

I believe I have to copy the good files on my work floppy but what files and how ?

Thanks for help. Regards.

Philippe

Modify the hello program

I don't have a IIe, but this works for a II+ and IIc.

Modify the INIT program, usually called HELLO, so it contains this line:

15 PRINT CHR$(4)"BLOAD LOADER.OBJ0"

16 CALL 4096

The line numbers 15 and 16 should be changed to something sensible that fits your hello program.

Save the new HELLO program to the disk.

Now put in the SYSTEM MASTER and type RUN FILEM

Use this to copy 2 files from the system master to your new disk, using the instructions on the screen.

The files to copy are

- INTBASIC

- LOADER.OBJ0

When these have been copied to your new disk, you can boot from the disk and integer basic will be loaded into memory automatically.

 

A simpler method is to make your HELLO program look like this:

10 PRINT CHR$(4)"BLOAD INTBASIC,A$D000"

type INIT HELLO to format the new disk.

Now use the systmaster disk and type BRUN FID

Copy the file INTBASIC from the system master to your new disk.

And it should boot and load integer basic.

Or...

You can boot from the standard Apple DOS 3.3 disk which loads the Integer BASIC in RAM on an Apple //e.

You need to copy the "HELLO" program from the DOS 3.3 Master, modify it if necessary, and you need the INTBASIC binary files for it to load.  It's been years since I've done it, but that's the general jist of it from my memory.

 

Looking at his post, that's essentially what the other poster did above.
