Scott Taylor is posting the programs he wrote for the TRS-80 on Github. He writes:
This is a catalog of programs that I created for my first computer, a Radio Shack Model 1. I still have it and it still runs, although the cassette player it used for storage seized up some time ago. I am still coding for a living today!
I recently found this excellent emulator: http://48k.ca/trs80gp.html Thank you George Phillips for bringing back the joy of those early days.
I have a few printouts of the source code for the games I created between 1978 and 1981. I have never shared them with anyone except a few of my friends. I hope there are a few veterans out there that can appreciate what could be done 45 years ago with 16KB of RAM, a million times less than the computer I am typing this into!
You can find them at https://github.com/SGTaylorFun/TRS-80.
By the way, if you download from github be aware that you MUST follow his instructions. It is an ASCII file despite him putting a .CAS extension and line 30000 is too long for you to load and save it. It must be run from the FILE — RUN menu of TRS80GP.
One thought to “March 8, 2023 – “New” TRS-80 Software”
Thanks for the feedback. I am very new to the TRS80GP emulator.
I have changed the .CAS as .BAS and saved the program in both formats.
I also split line 30000 into two lines, although I never had problems with it on the real Model 1.
Let me know how it goes!
