Introducing NuInput: A superior INPUT

Introducing NuInput: A superior INPUT

If you’ve programmed in Applesoft, then you know that its INPUT command is not very capable. But now you don’t need it! NuInput, by Ivan Drucker, is a powerful and flexible replacement for INPUT which makes it easy for any Applesoft programmer to specify maximum entry length and permitted keys, automatically convert lowercase, refuse blank …

Introducing Slammer: A New Way of Using Machine Language from Applesoft

Introducing Slammer: A New Way of Using Machine Language from Applesoft

Wouldn’t it be great if you could put whatever machine language you wanted into a standard Applesoft program with practically no performance, dependency, or stability issues? With Ivan Drucker’s Slammer, you can! Slammer is a new method for installing and executing machine language routines, at machine language speed, using 100% legal Applesoft. This presentation introduces …

Optimizing Algorithms in Applesoft BASIC

Optimizing Algorithms in Applesoft BASIC

Recent experiments with fractal algorithms in pure Applesoft BASIC have revealed methods for optimizing code to achieve acceptable speeds on a 4Mhz IIc Plus. In this session, Wayne Arthurton demonstrates the effects of using and optimizing user- defined functions, vari able reuse, variable allocation order, and other techniques for improving BASIC calculation performance. Recorded on …
