I’ve been wanting to get back into programming on my Apple //c for quite a while now, but didn’t want to go back to AppleSoft. Back in the 80s I was an avid reader of the Nibble Magazine, and remember a series of advertisements for an assembler macro extension programming language.
Couldn’t remember the name, so I dragged out my Nibble Collection – Not as onerous as it sounds as I’d recently bought the entire set on a twin DVD set, and started flipping through the pages and found the adverts I remembered. Hello Macrosoft by MindCraft!
Next stop Google, and I couldn’t believe the result. Top of the page took me straight back to Nibble’s website http://www.nibblemagazine.com/assmblr_macrosoft.htm Plonked down my cash, and within the week a DVD arrived with the ProDOS and DOS disk images, and the manuals in PDF.
What am I going to program? Well I have absolutely no idea. I figure I can go and drag out my notes from years gone by for inspiration. Wargame . . . . Dungeon Adventure . . . . Utilities . . . .
Well, I suppose when inspiration whacks me across the back of the head, I’ll blog the answer.
