Disk ID#: 3BSB-07
WAP /// SIG PD LIBRARY PDS Name: BASIC 1.23 AND UTILITIES Disk ID#: 3BSB-07 This is another disk for the Apple /// Business Basic Programmer. Along with the standard version 1.23 of Business Basic, we've included many invokables and utility programs that you will find useful as you attempt to program in Business Basic. Manuals are in the WAP office. For the best information on programming see our Business Basic series by Taylor Pohlman on disks 3BSB-01 through 05. Here's what you'll find on this disk: Side One: -: CLEANER : Will turn on a disk drive so you can use a disk cleaner. -: COMPARE.PRGS : Compares two versions of a Basic program. -: DESIGN.FONT : A Font design program. -: FILEHANDLER : A File handling utility. -: QUICK SORT : A sorting utility. -: RENUMBER : A utility that lets you renumber or merge programs. -: STRING.CK : A program to check strings in a Basic program. -: FILE.CLEAR : Clears files. -: FIND.REPLACE : Finds and replaces -: Invokables include: -: Request.Inv, Download.Inv., Filehandler.Inv., Readcrt.Inv., Upshift.Inv. -: On Side Two are: -: Two excellent Basic utility programs by Robert Boston: -: AUTOBASIC: A line editor for text files of BASIC programs (< 3,000 -: lines). -: TREESORT: A sorting utility.
Disks 3BSB-03 through 3BSB-07
WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY Disks 3BSB-03 through 3BSB-07 The Third Basic By Taylor Pohlman Disks 3BSB-03 through 07, contain all 23 articles on Business Basic as written by Taylor Pohlman in the old Solftalk Magazine, as well as every BUSINESS BASIC program developed for use with those articles. The Menu.Maker program will allow you to read each article and to run the programs should you so desire. BUT PLEASE NOTE: We would recommend you copy the programs to a separate disk and run them from that disk. Since many of these programs are basically examples to show certain things that BUSINESS BASIC can do, the original program could be damaged. Further, you may need to include other files, like BGRAF.INV or other invokable module in order to properly run these programs. Where space permits, we will include these on the disk at the directory level. But you will have to use System Utilities to transfer them to the appropriate disk. Finally: in order to save space, we have only made 3BSB-01 a self-booting disk. The rest of the Third Basic disks will include Menu.Maker but not the SOS.Kernal, SOS.Driver and SOS.Interp files needed for your Apple /// to boot up. Since Menu.Maker will read and run programs from any disk placed in any disk drive, all you have to do is boot this disk (or any other Bootable /// SIG PD BUSINESS BASIC disk) and then place the proper disk in any disk drive to get your menu. Here's what you'll find on each disk: PDS NAME: Pohlman Disk 01 DISK ID#: 3BSB-03 BOOTABLE?: Bootable Contains the first five articles from Taylor Pohlman's fine series on Business Basic in Softalk Magazine.

Some can be used as is, others must be incorporated into other programs as your needs call for. Please be aware that your WAP /// SIG has modified these programs so that, when done, they will return you to our "Menu.Maker" program. You need to change the code to make it look elsewhere or end if you like. Now, what's on this disk? Here's the rundown: SIDE ONE SKETCHER.III : A graphic sketching utility PEG.LEAP : A fun game something like checkers BLOCKS : Graphics demo LINES : Graphics demo NOISES : Lots of them! FONTDEMO : A font demonstration program SIDE TWO AIRPLANE.SS :Visicalc/3EZ Pieces Decision Support Spreadsheet BAS.BOOT :A program that allows you to reboot from Basic using MISC.INV invokable BASIC.FOR.D.T :Disk formating utility BASIC.T.E.W.PRG :A program that generates negative square roots and random numbers BENS.SUPER.SLOT :Slot Machine Game BRIANS.COLORS :Graphics Demo BRIANS.THREEme :Graphics Demo BYTE.TWO.TEST :For programmers, identifies when a "special key" is pressed CIRCLING.DEMO :Graphics Demo.

Just LOAD and then LIST them to see. Each will also indicate which ON THREE magazine issue they came from. The WAP office has most of these in the library. Or you can get back issues of On Three by calling 1-(805)-822-8580 (On Three). While you're at it, be sure to get on their mailing list.

WAP /// SIG PUBLIC DOMAIN LIBRARY PDS NAME: THE APPLE /// STARTUP DISK AND PRINTER SET-UP PROGRAMS DISK ID : 3BSB-10 BOOTABLE? Side One UPDATED APRIL, 1991 MAY, 1995 FIRST OF ALL: Many thanks to WAP /// SIGer Jim Salerno for providing the programs for this disk. His efforts are appreciated! BELOW: You will find basic information about the files on side one of this disk: BOOTING...As you have discovered, side one of this disk is self-booting. Side two may be accessed by first running the WAP MENU.MAKER program, turning the disk over and pressing the <ESCAPE> key. SOS.DRIVER...The "ATTACH" Driver is set to input ".PRINTER" using APPLE DMP Codes. Use Control-1 to request screen text printout. Control-2 will toggle from normal to condensed size print. Use the KEYPAD NUMBERS for this command. You will see a letter at the upper right screen position indicating your selection. Except for programs which have redefined the use of the keypad numbers, this program will permit a screen text printout whenever a keyboard input is allowed. It should let you dump the screen at normal size using just about any printer. Try it and see! ....The serial printer driver,".PRINTER", is set at 1200 baud,7 bit-odd,with no delays. This is to be used with the serial port on the back of your Apple ///. ....The parallel printer driver,"PPRINTER" is for the APPLE UPIC interface card (slot 1). ....The .Profile driver is a "Universal" driver for use with a five or ten MB ProFile. ....We have also included a few other printer drivers which may better fit your system. But you will have to set it up accordingly using the System Utilities "System Configuration Program" (available on WAP PD disk 3UTL-01). MENU ITEMS...Most items need no explanation, as they will allow you to catalog a disk or read a file, etc. SIDE TWO PRINTER CONTROL AND LABEL PROGRAMS DECEMBER, 1987 UPDATED APRIL, 1991 Please note that while these programs may not correspond directly to your printer, you can adapt them according to your own needs. By looking at your printer manual, you can exchange the control codes in these programs for those of your printer. Thus, you'll have a quick and easy way to set up your printer or print disk labels from Business Basic. PRINTER.SET A program for selecting printer functions on the Apple Dot Matrix and Imagewriter printers. From ON THREE, Feb. 1986. PRINTER.SET.MOD Modification and enlargement of above program for use with the C.Itoh printer. EPSON.CONTROL A program for selecting printer functions on the Epson printer. From THREE's COMPANY. C.ITOH.CONTROL Modification of above program for use on the C.Itoh printer. PRINTER.MENU An inquiry and response type menu for selecting printer functions for the Apple DMP printer. PRINT.TEXT A PASCAL program for printing pascal text files, skipping over page breaks and numbering each page. REQUIRES PASCAL TO USE. OKIDATA.MENU A menu for the OKIDATA 182 printer is contained in "OKIDATA.MENU". This may be renamed and used as the printer menu. If you do this, please save the original printer menu and restore it before leaving. -------------------- LABEL PROGRAMS ------------------------- LABELER.1 This program prints the directory from an APPLE /// disk on Avery 1.5 inch X 4.0 inch labels. It is set up for an Epson MX-100 printer. The printer commands are located in lines 730-790. LABELER.2 This program prints the directory from an APPLE /// disk on 1 x 3.5 inch, 1-UP labels.
