BBC BASIC & Introducing BBC BASIC [Remastered PDFs]

Post by dv8 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 10:47 am

Attached are two programming books: BBC BASIC and Introducing BBC BASIC, both by R.B. Coats.

'Introducing' is pretty much a cut-down version of the larger book. It does, however, have some extra content in the chapters on graphics, sound and procedures. It also includes an additional set of questions and answers.

An SSD containing the listings is also provided for each book.

Thanks!

Yes, I scanned them in. Then they were put through OCR and re-created in a DTP package.

Nuance OmniPage.

The whole sordid story of how these books are created is in the Assembly Language Programming book thread.

Thanks! Several other books are already in production and will be posted soon :-)

It's not as bad as I probably made it sound! Usually I just work on them a bit at a time while watching TV or listening to podcasts. That way it doesn't feel like too much of a slog.
