    Warp Speed DOS XL v2.42w Screen Shot
  2. Hello together, Today is a very special day, because a long, long search and work around the world with many users is now over with a final good end after decades. The community now has a never seen before Integer BASIC from OSS and this time with the source code together! We are very happy about that, because now, just the source code of TurboBasic XL is missing (we are working on that, too), so we can make a final BASIC for the Atari, let's call it: Ultimate BASIC, else Final BASIC? Further, we can interbreed with other source codes, for example ACTION! for an enhanced editor (scrolling) or the EXTEND command from the source code of BASIC XE to get used of the additional RAM with now up to 4 MB! All this is now possible and to your feet. Further, please take into account the source code for the Atari Calculator, wich is now in PD, too for the floating point routines plus the ones from Altirra BASIC and BASIC++. All links to the software can be found here: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=OSS%20Integer%20Basic https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=ACTION%20source%20code https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Basic%20XE https://archive.org/details/ColleenCalculator https://archive.org/details/ColleenFloatingPointRoutines http://www.virtualdub.org/altirra.html http://www.xl-project.com/downloads.html Enjoy and have fun. :-))) This service was brought to you by Kevin, a good soul (who would like to stay anonymously), JAC!, Tomasz 'KrOtki' Krasuski, a still unknown donator of the hex codes, which enabled us to restore the code, the files and later from that, finally, the cart itself. For those of you, who may ask about the unknown donator: in the very last picture of the microfilm there was a slide with the following sentence: After digitizing, destroy everything send to you and there will be more! I did exactly as ordered, and now we are waiting for more… Call for help: who can create a cart out of the source code?

  4. Hello together! Recently the following manuals: OSS-The Basic XL Toolkit-Including the BASIC XL Runtime Package-Reference Manual and OSS-Basic XE Reference Manual did arrive at Atarimania. So, the circle is closing... There is just one book left, which seems to be lost: 30 Days to Understanding BASIC XL - Bill Wilkinson and Diane Goldstein If anyone of you has this book, we would really appreciate that to complete the BASIC XL project. Many thanks in advance to you and Happy Easter! :-) The manual for BASIC XL is exceptional. The first section, an exhaustive tutorial entitled, "30 Days to Under standing BASIC XL," takes the novice by hand and walks him through the fundamentals of BASIC programming. Experienced programmers can proceed directly to the excellent 135-page reference section. Review - BASIC XL BASIC XL OPTIMISED SYSTEMS SOFTWARE 1173D S. Saratoga/Sunnyvale Rd. San Jose, CA 95129 (408) 446-3099 16K Cartridge $99.00 by Robert L. Riggs Optimised Systems Software (O.S.S.) has done it again! Bill Wilkinson & Co. have put the cap on the BASIC language for Atari computers: BASIC XL. It's neatly wrapped and documented in a yellow binder which accompanies the bright orange cartridge. The documentation begins with a 176-page tutorial entitled "30 Days to Understanding BASIC XL," written by Bill Wilkinson and Diane Goldstein. If you are a complete novice at BASIC programming, this book and a fair amount of determination are all you will need to learn to use your Atari computer. Bill and Diane introduce you to BASIC XL with the "chapter-a-day" system: 30 chapters, beginning with "Getting to know your computer" and extending through "Congratulations: 30 END." Following the tutorial is the reference manual which documents the entire language, including 45 syntax expressions and keywords not found in 8K Atari BASIC. It's a well-known fact that Bill Wilkinson was part of the team that developed 8K Atari BASIC. He's written more than once of the bugs and limitations inherent in that language. BASIC A+ did much to alleviate those shortcomings, but it was disk-based and devoured too much memory. BASIC XL is on cartridge and, because of its memory bank design, uses no more RAM than Atari BASIC. Critics of the execution speed of other versions of BASIC will find little to complain about with regard to O.S.S.'s latest achievement. BASIC programs previously typed in from magazines and abandoned because of their boring snail-pace run at arcade speeds with BASIC XL. In fact, timing loops almost invariably have to be extended when running Atari BASIC programs with BASIC XL. That's right, BASIC XL is upward compatible with Atari BASIC, unlike MicroSoft BASIC. And it still offers MicroSoft-style string-handling, auto line-numbering, renumbering and line delete. Other useful additions to the BASIC vocabulary include ELSE, WHILE, ENDIF, ENDWHILE, PRINT USING, TAB and TRACE/TRACEOFF. Player-missile graphics are of particular interest to many Atari programmers. Dozens of articles and programs in a variety of books and magazines are devoted to utility programs to help you design and use players and/or missiles. O.S.S. provides you with BASIC commands to deal with these pesky critters. just wait until you can use commands like MISSILE, BUMP, PMCOLOR, PMGRAPHICS, PMMOVE, PMWIDTH and PMCLR. You'll love it! SET is another new and extremely powerful command. It allows you to exercise control over a variety of system level functions. You can quickly and easily change 13 functions such as BREAK key enable/disable, Tab stop settings for the comma in PRINT statements, the prompt character for INPUT, auto DIMensioning, and LIST formatter to automatically indent structured statements. DOS commands directly from BASIC include DIR (disk directory), ERASE, PROTECT, UNPROTECT and RENAME. And that's not all. You get additional functions like DPEEK/DPOKE, ERR, FIND, HSTICK/VSTICK, PEN, PMADR and SYS. You can type them all in caps, lower case or even reverse characters for all BASIC XL cares. Just think -- no more angrily hitting the CAPS/LOWR key after a syntax error! Yes, I know that doesn't add up to 45 commands, yet. There are more advanced-technique keywords that some of you will undoubtedly drool over, so I suggest that you run (don't walk) directly to your friendly Atari dealer and buy your very own copy of BASIC XL immediately. It's the here-and-now solution to all your BASIC needs for your Atari computer.
  5. Hello together! Tera thanks to low.blow, which I nominate hereby : "Atari man of the year", we now have two books back, where rumors told, they never existed. 30 Days to Understanding BASIC XL-Bill Wilkinson and Diane Goldstein, 180 pages. and OSS BASIC XL-Reference Manual-1st Edition 1983, 143 pages. The real McCoy! No reprint! 100 % OSS stuff! Both with OCR! OSS.zip So, remaining are just these artifacts: Artifacts.pdf and Atari is completely restored. :-))))
  6. Hi together, Allan and Mr.Fish have rescanned the DOS XL manual in a marvelous way: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=OSS%20DOS%20XL Enjoy. :-))) Thank you so much Allan and Mr.Fish. ;-) ;-)
  7. Hello together, Recently I heard, that tiny c associates, OSS, Inc., Thomas A. Gibson and Scott B. Guthery have published a C interpreter in 1978 and 1982! From Atari FAQ (thanks to Michael Current, Freddy and all the others) we find: First sold C compiler by OSS. This compiler was used to compile itself! First true language "bootstrap" on any 8-bit machine (it was also available for Apple and CP/M machines). Derived from Dr.Dobbs "Small C". Compiles to 6502 code which emulates the 8080 instruction set. Thanks to Kevin Savetz and archive.org, we do have the manual: tiny-c_manual.pdf ; size: 2.6 MB and some other infos: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=C But the main important question is: does an atr-image of the disk exists? So many thanks in advance for helping us. :-)
  8. Hi all, I'm downsizing my Atari 8-bit collection and I'd thought I'd offer this on here before it goes to ebay....

    Side B - WS DOS XL

    From the album: Warp Speed DOS XL v2.42w

    Diskette label was marked by hand with "WS" (assuming "Warp Speed"). Unknown if that was written by previous owner or by OSS, Inc. or Happy Computers, Inc.
  10. Those interested in a little historical primer on Paul Laughton & Kathleen O'Brien should read this synopsis, first, if you haven't already. Below, you will find a very Interesting video interview that goes deeply into areas that are not normally covered in Atari-specific interviews with Paul Laughton. Here you will get the gossip about how Kathleen O'Brien (the other Co-Author of Atari BASIC, & author of Atari Editor Assembler, etc.) physically assaulted Steve Jobs in a very memorable Reality Check. Hahaha, she's probably the only person who ever put him in his place for being impolite & obnoxious while applying his "Reality Distortion Field" conversation technique, ha! Paul Laughton discusses his early career with IBM, and his early work with Shepardson Microsystems, providing a lot of background history on what it took to later bring us Atari BASIC, DOS, and Optimized Systems Software (OSS) products. This includes a lot of coverage of the work that was done for Apple that provided the basis for the later Atari products (this interview is like a prequel to the "ANTIC the Atari 8-bit Podcast" audio interview with Paul Laughton). He discusses how the "Apple Annie" Apple project led to the early basis of the Atari software. His Atari days are 42 minutes into the interview, but watch the whole thing, to put all of the details in perspective. Lots of good stuff on the past, the present, & the future in this interview!

  12. Is there anyone out there who owns the DOS XL Manual that would be willing to scan the front and back covers (as per pictured below)? I have a good copy of the manual content that I'm working on getting the pages in proper order (may straighten them out too). Then I'll be bookmarking this and posting it to my website for download. It'd be much appreciated... Thanks.
  13. Hi everyone, Just a short question. On my list is a file called: OSS MAC/65 MCDO.M65 file. Does anyone know of that file or where it belongs to? I am totally lost and can't remember. Thank you very much in advance.
  14. Hello together, Today is a very special day, because a long, long search and work around the world with many users is now over with a final good end after decades. The community now has the lost to be believe, final OSS supercart of the highest developed macro assembler for the Atari, the OSS MAC/65, MAC XL and MAC XE in various versions and this time with the source code together! Did I mention the additional commands like PHX, PHY and so on? We are very happy about that, because now, we can make a final macro assembler for the Atari, let's call it: Ultimate MAC/65? Further, we can interbreed with other source codes, for example ACTION! for an enhanced editor (scrolling) or the EXTEND command from the source code of BASIC XE to get used of the additional RAM with now up to 4 MB! All this is now possible and to your feet. All links to the software can be found here: https://atariwiki.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=Mac65 Enjoy and have fun. :-))) This service was brought to you by Kevin, a good soul (who would like to stay anonymously), JAC!, Tomasz 'KrOtki' Krasuski, a still unknown donator of the hex codes, which enabled us to restore the code, the files and later from that, finally, the cart itself. For those of you, who may ask about the unknown donator: in the very last picture of the microfilm there was a slide with the following sentence: After digitizing, destroy everything send to you and there will be more! I did exactly as ordered, and guess what, we can continue in part 3! Not kidding. Check back in here again. :-) Call for help, up to now, we have some problems with assembling, just 4 errors are remaining: Who can help us to get them lost? The BIN-files just run in Altirra with OSS '043M' ; who can create a '034M'-version? :-) MAC_XE_v3.4i_(1986-02-11)(Lawrow,_Stephen)(US).bin MAC-65_v3.6_(1988-01-07)(Lawrow,_Stephen)(US).bin
