Applesoft II BASIC Programming

Hi, I'm still new to this site but I'm finding it very useful.

IS this a good site to ask BASIC programming questions on? If not, can anyone recommend a site that is good for this? I'm working specifically with an Apple II Plus, Applesoft II BASIC, if that matters.

One question I have is: how do you know how large (in bytes) your BASIC program is in memory? And how do you know at what memory address the program starts at?

Thanks!

dvan,

Do you have any of the Basic Manuals?
If not, go here:

Yes, this is a good site.

You can also ask on the Usenet newsgroup, comp.sys.apple2.programmer

There is a web interface to this newsgroup at Mac GUI.

Applesoft programs start at $800.

(Which is why they get wiped out when booting DOS)
