BCPL Keystrip

Post by robheaton » Sat Mar 14, 2020 1:41 pm

Is there a scan of the Keystrip for Acornsoft BCPL available anywhere?

Or can I convince someone into scanning one? Please!! [-o<

I’ve got one.

Will try to scan and upload on Wednesday. It’ll make a nice change from all the covid meetings. And may be the last chance I get for the next few months...

Simon Inns may have a lovely hi-res one of these as part of the Domeday stuff ... I've messaged him for you :)

I don't; the only thing I have is the ROMs and manual. I'm not 100% sure there was a keystrip, unless there was one for the built in editor? I was using BCPL on the Master, so the mega-ROM based *EDIT was far more useful :)

Edit: Just noticed the Lardo Boffin posted a version - so clearly there was one... I will have to hunt around and find one.

Yes - the keystrip is for ED the text editor. You can use any text editor providing it produces an appropriate text file.

Does anyone have a copy of the Calculations Package manual? I am trying to put the all the BCPL stuff in one place.
