Unearthed my old type-in cassette

Recommended Posts

I was going through my Atari ST disks recently and found a cassette tape I had long forgotten. I had used the tape to store BASIC programs I typed in from various Compute! and Antic books as a kid. I wrote about converting the tape to a .CAS file and trying to figure out where all the programs came from:




It was a fun research challenge tracking down each program, but perhaps my favorite nerdy part was diffing the source listings of the programs to see where I had made mistakes, or where I had customized the programs.

You'd have to double check the typos you already listed against the magazines and their own subsequent typos and fixes in later issues...

there are a number on archive.org where the OCR/ whatever checker they use change listings and or transpose them in strange ways...
