This book was produced by Compute! magazine editors in 1981, with parts of it appearing in issues of the magazine in 1980. It provides a starting guide to the Commodore PET and Commodore CBM computers. The book could work as a step-by-step guide, but many of the articles stand alone, having been gathered from various editions of the magazine.
This book contains instructions relating to the subroutines of the Commodore PET.
From the Introduction:
'For the average PET user the prospect of writing a set of programs to perform, say, a business application is daunting. Many don't even try, preferring to employ someone to do the job or buy an off-the-shelf package...These problems are purely a mental block, since any person of average intelligence can write and design such a program. Given a logical framwork on which to build, plus a few aids in the form of standard subroutines, the process of writing an applications program becomes considerably easier.'
First edition, June 1980.
This book contains instructions relating to the production of graphics on the Commodore PET.
From the Foreword:
'This book has two objectives. One, to provide the reader with an introduction to the programming techniques used to generate graphic displays. Two, to provide the programmer with a complete package of machine code routines giving a wide range of normally unavailable graphics functions.'
First edition, April 1981.
