This book by best-selling author Tim Hartnell is the ideal companion for you if the BBC Microcomputer is your first computer. It takes you, step by simple step, through programming in BBC BASIC - with a number of worthwhile programs - and then goes further, giving you leads to develop and expand your programming skills in the coming months.
Yes, it's true. Instant machine code from a good subset of BBC BASIC. Type your BASIC program into your model B BBC Micro, trigger the compiler, and your program is changed almost instantaneously into superfast machine code.
For £34.95 you get: Cassette version of the complete compiler (along with a version of the compiler for use with discs, ready for when you upgrade, the disc version being dubbed on the cassette after the cassette version); complete compile listing; extensive documentation and instructions. The compiler was written by Jeremy Ruston.
