That is interesting.
There are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of Programmer's Guides for the 6502, Z80, 68000, etc....however, other than Mr. Pittman's article, I do not ever recall seeing a third party guide to programming the 1802.
Would be neat if Mr. Swan would allow the book to be available in PDF form. I would read it.

I went ahead and dropped that InterLibrary Loan off for "Programmer's Guide to the 1802." I'm now a buck poorer, but the bonus is that within a couple of weeks I should be able to stop by the library and pick up the book.
My InterLibrary loan came in today. I went to the library and picked it up. So, for one dollar I have borrowed "Programmer's Guide to the 1802" through May 21, 2013. Not a bad deal! Despite its age, the book looks nearly new. I haven't had time yet to do anything but glance through it yet.
The first chapter is called "A System of Numbers-- A Number of Systems." The first subtitle is called "1010 Little Indians." Without further reading I smiled broadly. I love binary system jokes/puns. The classic one is "There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't."
When I take a closer look at the book I'll give my thoughts on it.
