As a complement to Stavros Karatsoridis' BASIC programming articles in Juiced.GS Volume 22, Issues 3–4, this disk image contains five ampersand packages published by Nibble Magazine:

  • Supersort, by D. Sprinkle, from Nibble Express Volume 7
  • Applesoft Supercharger, by W.T. Bridgman, from Nibble Express Volume 6
  • Amperpalette, by D.L. Smith, from Nibble Express Volume 8
  • Sound Wizard, by J.J. Strout, from Nibble Express Volume 11
  • Supergraphics GS, by T. Meekins, from Nibble February 1988

These five programs will run under both ProDOS and DOS 3.3, except for Applesoft Supercharger, which is DOS 3.3 only.

The image also contains sample code demonstrating the use of many internal Applesoft entry points when writing ampersand commands.

Included in this archive is a 52-page PDF of the articles that originally accompanied these ampersand packages. This PDF is excerpt from a commercial product and is provided here for free exclusively to Juiced.GS subscribers with permission from Mike Harvey. There is also a 6-page PDF of Applesoft command token and error code tables and sample code.

June 1, 2017 · Comments Off on Golden Gate — cross-platform compatibility layer for ORCA and GNO/ME

Golden Gate by Kelvin Sherlock is a compatibility layer for ORCA and GNO/ME command line programs. With Golden Gate, you can run many text-based ORCA or GNO shell programs (including the ORCA/C, ORCA/M, and ORCA/Pascal compilers) as if they were native to your Mac, Windows, or Linux machine, enabling cross-platform development of Apple IIgs applications. Use your favorite text editor (or IDE such as Xcode) to build and compile faster than ever!

This product includes GNO/ME development headers and libraries, as well as a selection of useful GNO utilities for development and native interoperation (chtyp, ls, lseg, nroff, printenv, mkobj, getfileinfo, prefix); macOS and Windows installers; and PDF and man-page documentation. Users will be added to a GitLab repo to receive source code and updates. ORCA compilers are not included and are sold separately as part of Opus ][: The Software. If you own Opus ][: The Software from ByteWorks, Golden Gate can extract and install files from that volume into your development environment.

Golden Gate is designed to work on Windows 10 (32-bit binary) or later with NTFS; MacOS 10.10 (64-bit) or later on a case-insensitive HFS+ volume; and any modern Linux with gcc 6 compiler (case-insensitive JFS file system recommended).

This product is neither developed nor endorsed by The Byte Works.
