MAY, 1983 








EDITOR'S OUTPUT 


Looks like a good issue. 


Ten pages this time around, full of the right stuff. I’ve 
been fooling arcund with a sodem and berainal program. 
Finally figured cut how to download and save information te 
disk. Tf still 


amazes me that something so easy can seam so 
difficult when one is just beginning. the Visicalc and APY 
articles are the offspring of information downloaded from 4 
special Atari BBS. I’m planning to get ayself hooked up to 
CompuServe as soon as possible. If any readers have had 
bad/good experiences with this service, please write to ae 
about it. 

I’ve developed a new column this issue: 
you feel about rumors? TID-BITS will feat 
pragnastications concerning Atari and the 
of what you'll read there has a fairly su 
ruth, although some “tlashes" may just b 

. Personaliy, I like rumors. Just as !

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT 


Well, it’s that 
to let you know w 


act 


the month again and t: 
] 


ige for me 
gon in the club’s Libr 


ary. 


As I announced at the last club meeting, the club’s BBS 
is up and running-well that’s not exactly right. I have 
found that the BES doesn’t like anvone accessing the disk 
directories. Hooetully, with a little helo, I will have 
this oroblem fixed by cur next general meting if not 
before. If you want to find out if the BBS is working 
before then, call the BBS number after 9:00 p.m. If you get 
the normal information massa e, the | BBS is not worki ing vat 
for I went to bed early and forgot to turn it Sale At any 
rate, bear with me, and I°1] get it saeyiing soon as | 
can. In the mean time | have been collecting learns from 
CompuServe and the other BES*s around the country, so when 
i do get the BBS back on-line, there will be qui te a few 
new programs (1 hope), 


For those af you that are in the market for a 850 
interface, I have some good news and some bad news. ee 
the bad news there is a three month waiting list ¢ 
theses, due in cart to ATARI’s aove te the Ukraine, “NON the 
good news: if you buy either the ATR “€000 or MICRD-MAIN 
FRANE vou don’t nead the interface plus you will be able to 
run CP/M (0h Joy}. If you want to find out mere about these 
units, talk te Nestor Sanchez (273-3005) about the ATR 
8000, and our present Prez about the MICRO- MAIN FRAME. 


For those of you interested in joining CompuServe, thay 
just started a thirty-five dollar yearly member ship "fee, in 
addition ta their tan dollar monthly aininue (that is if 
you don’t use the service for one month’s time, you will be 
charged for two hours).

BEST BUYS 


Happy May Atari fans! 


Spring (and a lot more sun) has hit San Diego and a few 
stores are clearing out old stock, Dow on EL Cajon Blvd. 
bought out Video 2000 and has a few Atari hardware and 
software items. Computer Contol Central in Pacific Beach 
is selling boxes of Elephant disks for $18.99. Online 
Computing in La Mesa is closing out the Atari line and may 
have some items left at discounted prices. Dimensicnal 
Software has been advertising a sale on recreational Atari 
software and may still have a sale when this reaches you. 
Toys-R-Us is now selling the Atari 400 with a rebate that 
nets the unit an amazing $78.89, Our local newspapers 
(Union & Tribune) have a classified section listing for 
computers which has very up to date information on who is 
having sales: I’ve found some excellent bargains this way. 
If you want to know what’s happening and where, the 
newspaper is still the best way to find out, 


As a quide to this month’s reprint of the updated 


discount list; neither SDACE or ayself endorses any store - 


listed. We give you this information so you can hopefully 
have a wider choice of places to shop and can find the best 
deal for you. Many of the department stores have sales 
with very low prices, but none of these I’ve been to have 
intormed sales people, Smaller stores generally have more 
information and competitive prices. Stores which give 
special discounts to you as a member are shown “W/CARD" in 
the list. {! have tried to designate what kind of 
merchandise 15 carried in each store in the "HARD-SOFT" 
coluan. If you know of any stores or qood deals I’ve 
aissed, please let se know at the meeting. Till then, 
enjoy soring and good computing.

A Software Review by Don Perkins

likes and dislikes in a list format.

AtariWriter you can see the document’s format BEFORE it's

BOOK REVIEW 


Mapping the Atari 

by lan Chadwick | 
Introduction by Bill Wilkinson 
Publisher: COMPUTE! Books 
Price: $14.95 


I’m a glutton for Atari books. | buy a lot of them—heck, 
| buy them all—in a seemingly unending search for that 
magnificent tome which can explain it all to me. Out there 
somewhere, | am convinced, are the magical words that 
will dance my fingers across the keyboard and stand my 
computer on its ear. I’ve sliced the pages from Byte 
magazine; I’ve pretended to read the Operating System 
listing; I’ve been fooled time and again by maledictive 
typos, misanthropic publishers and silken tongued 
miscreants. But | remain true to my quest, and at times | 
get close. 

One of the things I would really like to glue my eyeballs 
to is a good cross-referenced index to the specific features 
of Atari computers. Also, the perfect companion piece 
would be a compilation of detailed explanations for every 
memory location giving its OS mnemonic, its primary 
functions, possible applications and, again, cross- 
referencing to other related memory locations. 

Last month’s release from COMPUTE! Books written by 
lan Chadwick and called Mapping the Atari comes quite 
close to the above-mentioned ideal. Over 200 pages are 
efficiently organized within a spiral binding which allows 
it to lie flat and stay flat. (All the Atari books from 
COMPUTE! come bound that way, much to their credit; 
wouldn't it be nice if all computer books would just 
behave?) Inside there are two different indexes included. 
The first lists the OS mnemonic labels alphabetically—a 
time saver when trying to figure out all those nifty 
program listings in various magazines, etc. The other 
index is arranged according to subject; and—get this— 
it’s a full eight double-columned pages of extensive cross- 
referencing. Most of your college text books aren’t nearly 
that thorough. 


The actual descriptions themselves are definitive. Many 
are one or two fact filled pages long; and they don’t stop 
there—many contain bibliographical references to 
several other books and past magazine articles which one 
can peruse to any depth desired. By themselves most 
descriptions are quite understandable and so thorough 
that there remains little need to search these other 
resources. Sometimes for the tougher concepts a short 
BASIC program is used to illustrate an important feature 
where an immediate hands-on tutorial can allow you to 
own that idea once and for all. There are also internal 
references to other memory locations when they are 
related, and you are encouraged to read _ those 
descriptions as well. Thumbing from location to location 
moves rapidly since the top of each leaf boldly displays the 
memory addresses for that page. Further down the sheet 
-each location description is prefaced with its address 
expressed in in both decimal and hex notation and 
followed by its OS mnemonic label. 


The introduction by Bill Wilkinson of Optimized 
System Software, creators of both Atari 8K BASIC and 
BASIC A-plus, gives an entertaining and enlightening 
glimpse into the way to PEEK and POKE in seven different 
programming languages: BASIC, BASIC A-plus, Forth, C, 
Pascal, PILOT and Assembler/Machine language. 
Wilkinson concludes, “I expect to use this book often.” 

Well, in the month I’ve had it | have already used this 
book often. | expect that | will continue to save a great 
deal of time doing so, thanks to its well planned format 
and execution. However, I’m not sure if an absolute 
beginner could get as much out of this book right away; it 
just doesn’t quite get down on its knees to explain things. 
In fact, one of the few typos in the book was in the 
beginners’ introductory notes which tried to give a 
cursory explanation of hexadecimal numbers. It equated 
255 (decimal) to $F (hex) which, of course, we all 
recognize as an error; but just pity the poor neophyte 
who tries to make sense out of that. 

On the other hand, assuming your skills have 
developed to just beyond the beginning level, then | 
unequivocally recommend this book. | hate to say 
goodbye to old friends, but Educational Software’s Master 
Memory Map, with its frustrating typographical errors, 
and Atari’s own cryptic Technical Users Notes might well 
become seldom used superfluous curiosities on my 
bookshelf.
