Dear Mr. Torzewski:

I am glad to see, from the December issue of Interface Age, that you
are collecting Apple I programs. After more than a year of struggling with
the Apple I, I have pretty much put it aside since I have been able to get
the use of computers with better hardware and software support (Cromemco Z1
and now an Apple II). But I did write some programs for it, which are
enclosed with this letter.

The enclosed cassette has two tracks of programs: A, starting at 0
on my tape counter, and B which starts at 10. A contains
A1 (280-7FF) Program to display large characters
A2 (800-FFF) Extended monitor (apparently a design study for the
Apple II)
B contains
B1 (700-71C) Porgram to display ASCII HEX equivalents o f any
keyboard character
B2 (750-776) Program to display ASCII HEX equivalents of all
printing characters
B3 (7C0-7FF) Improved search subroutine for disassembler (like the
one I published in the October issue of Interface Age, except that it prints
only two lines of disassembled code)
B4 (700-9FF) Disassembler (as published in Dr. Dobb's Journal and
Interface Age)
B5 (A00-BFF) Primitive, line oriented text editor

I had expanded the Apple I memory to 20K and have a 16K Star Trek
and a floating point calculator program. However, I have taken out the 16K
chips and put them in the Apple II and so can no longer run these. If you
want, I can make copie on the Apple II, but I cannot test them.

It will be interesting to hear what programs you find. I would also
be interested in any information on how to interface the Apple I. I do have
an SWTP printer connected to it, but that is all.

Yous sincerely,

Arthur L. Schawlow
