Book Description:
(from the back cover) Computers are coming home! Now with the development of the Atari ready-to-go systems, you, too, can use the computer as a tool in your home, school, or office.
Tens of thousands of people of all ages used earlier editions of this book to teach themselves the programming language BASIC. So can you! This Atari edition makes it even easier for you to dispel the mystical aura that often surrounds the computer. You will learn how to write computer programs to use in your home or office, in any field from education to business to the humanities. You need no special math or science background to read, understand, and write programs in ATARI BASIC.
This book shows you how to read, write, and understand the ATARI BASIC programming language used in these new personal-sized microcomputers. In just a few days you can learn to do nearly anything you want using ATARI BASIC programs -- without any special background or previous experience with a computer. You'll find detailed descriptions of all the ATARI BASIC you will need to know to make your computer work for you. Numerous applications and games are also included.
