Re: unmodified Tiny Basic ?
I think that I have that manual by RCA still packed away somewhere but I had forgotten
about the interepreter hex listing. We moved to a different location about a year ago and
some things are still in boxes. Some of the bulkiest computer stuff went out the door but I
made it a point to keep the 1802 stuff.
Thanks for the information Lee! :o)
