Beneath Apple ProDOS for Apple II, Second printing, March 1985
Don D Worth, Pieter M Lechner Published Qualtiy Software
"...intended to serve as a companion to the manuals provided by Apple Computer Inc for ProDOS, providing additional information for the advanced programmer or for the novice Apple user who wants to know more about the structure of disks."
Beneath Apple ProDOS is intended to serve as a companion to the manuals provided by Apple Computer, Inc. for ProDOS, providing additional information for the advanced programmer or for the novice Apple user who wants to know more about the structure of disks. It is not the intent of this manual to replace the documentation provided by Apple. Although, for the sake of continuity, some of the material covered in the Apple manuals is also covered here, it will be assumed that the reader is reasonably familiar with the contents of Apple’s ProDOS User’s Manual and BASIC Programming With ProDOS. Since all chapters presented here may not be of use to each Apple owner, each has been written to stand on its own. Readers of our earlier book. Beneath Apple DOS, will notice that we have retained the basic organization of that book in an attempt to help them familiarize themselves with Beneath Apple ProDOS more quickly.
The information presented here is a result of intensive disassembly and annotation of various versions of ProDOS by the authors. It also uses as a reference various application notes and preliminary documentation from Apple. Although no guarantee can be made concerning the accuracy of the information presented here, aU of the material included in Beneath Apple ProDOS has been thoroughly researched and tested.
