1081Re: [Altair Computer Club] Altair 680 CSAVE Problems!@ : (
- Jan 2, 2007Sometimes you gotta read those manuals between the lines. It may
help you to know that 680 BASIC is essentially the same as Altair
8800 8K BASIC, rev 3.
All BASICs were backward compatable to a great extent. For
example, Altair disk BASIC and Hard Disk BASIC (and even IBM PC
BASIC) retained the CSAVE and CLOAD commands. Sometimes, a better
description of a command might be found in the manual for another
version of BASIC.
