Things are tough right now ...

They're tough for everyone :( But when coronavirus hit here in the UK, the museum had to close its doors to the public, and we lost practically all our income overnight.

Please Donate Via Just GivingNo visitors, no workshops, no events, no school visits... no income. We know that things are tough for everyone right now, but if you can afford to help us through these tough times please donate what you can.

There's over 36,000 exhibits here! That should keep you occupied for a bit - get searching!

Advanced Amstrad CPC6128 Computing

Including CP/M, Printers and Business Applications

The Amstrad CPC6128 is equipped with ample memory, a built-in disc drive, and the latest version of the well-established CP/M operating system, all at a very competitive price. The serious user, particularly the business user, needs to know how to master the disc system and to make use of this machine with the many excellent printers that can be used with it.

The principles of CP/M, and how to use the available facilities are set out, including how to connect a second disc drive and make effective use of it.

The more advanced programmer will find details of the more advanced methods of BASIC and AMSDOS, covering such items as opening and closing disc files, file maintenance, creating, searching, sorting, amending and deleting files and making use of the additional memory for filing. An outline database program in BASIC is listed, allowing you to make your own personal database system. The graphics capabilities of the CPC6128 are covered in detail, including the CPC6128's new graphics commands, and using the additional memory for graphics. Useful information, which is difficult to find elsewhere, is provided on the sound system, such as setting up hardware envelopes and software relative envelopes.
