Re:1982 Sinclair manual problem
I missed this until now... Wow!
Always knew the Sinclair had potential. I had the Timex version and the choice of the T.O.S. operating system from Zebra(?) which came with 3" (not 3 1/4) disk drives or the Larkin Disk Drive System.
If I could write working programs on it well it could control the world.
Starting in Sinclair Basic, I quickly found I needed something that could more programming into the spectrum's limited memory. I found a "C" compiler for it but could never get up the interest to start something with it.
Then I found Forth. Wrote a co-ordinate geometry program and tried my hand at a few games that did not turn out too well.
I have only a few Spectrum friends left, this is going back a way, as most have passed but I am sending the link to those who remain.
Most unfortunate i got rid of all my Spectrum stuff, could never find it again.
