Spreadsheet on Floppy?

Post by maximus » Thu Dec 11, 2014 7:35 pm

Hi all, as i'm all out of ROM slots on my BBC Model B and I need to use a spreadsheet I was wondering if there were any spreadsheet programs on floppy? I've been scouring the web and everything seems to be ROM only. Any ideas?

I remember using Beebug Quickcalc at school. It runs in Mode 7.

Hi folks,

I have one of those Viglen eprom carts, Is there a rom version of a spread sheet available? if so where might I find it? Is there a depository of Rom files? Currently in my system I have:

FSDMMC .09
Basic
O.S.1.2
16K sidways Ram
Viglen Rom cart (puts a cartridge beside the keyboard... pretty nifty)

I have three cartridges with it:

one blank *used to Enigma? - not sure if this was useful to me as I dont have a real disk drive...

one Wordwise
AMX Super Rom - I will have to look that one up...

Love to get a spread sheet on rom if there is one?

Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can provide. :)

Intersheet or Viewsheet.

ROMs available for download from internet. Both work from sideways RAM so you can see which you prefer. Each has their protagonists. Me, I prefer Intersheet.
