The CoCo3 got some uptime this "weekend". Played around in OS9 for a while, then rebooted back into BASIC.
I'm slowly typing in all the programs from a K-Power book (_Computer Space Adventures_). I typed in 4 more! I'm about half-way through the book.
I'm even typing in the programs I already had from this book, so I can have the original versions.
Except "Asteroid of Doom". Typing in that monster once was enough for one life!
I found out last night that the I-APL organization did indeed port their APL interpreter to RISC OS.
Of course it's 26 bit only with no source. :-(
But I feel better anyway. :-)
I played with iapl on my CoCo3 under OS-9 a fair bit, and it worked well. I just didn't have a lot of vector / matrix math I needed to do.
I'm still amazed at how few rs232 line I use these days. The coco and the teletek have serial lines to my server, and of course the teletek has a serial line to its terminal. A free connection for the m100 and wp2 and that's it! Everything else is wifi or ethernet.
