The NS BASIC Corner

I was a contributing editor for NewtOnLine and wrote a monthly column on NS BASIC Programming called "The Basics of NS BASIC". This eZine stopped publishing late in 1995. The column has moved to PDA Developers Magazine, and will be a regular feature there. These original columns will remain on my web page. Source code from the column will also make its way here, a month or two after the column is published.

Here are the previous Columns:

Source Code from NS BASIC Corner Columns published in PDA Developers Magazine:
  • File Editing, Issue 4.1 - Jan/Feb 1996
  • NS BASIC Widgets, Issue 4.2 - Mar/Apr 1996

User Guides and Software Manuals

I co-authored (with Liz O'Hara) the NS BASIC handbook. NS BASIC  is a full-featured BASIC programming language for the Newton.
