OT: Sharp Programs - John Abbott (S. Africa) - 04-26-2012

Hi, does anyone know where I can get hold of a digital copy of the Sharp PC-1211 applications manual? Can't seem to find anything on the internet and this manual is full of really useful programs!
Thanks
John

I think I have it but can't check right now.

Will get back to you in a few hours (unless others can help you sooner).

Hi John,

While I don't have the PC-1211 application manual, I do have pdf's of the following for the TRS-80 PC-1 (which is the same as the Sharp 1211):

119 Practical Programs for the TRS-80 Pocket Computer

TRS-80 Pocket Computer Programs (50 basic programs)

Please email me if you wish copies.

Bill

If I may butt in, does anyone know where a copy of the Sharp PC-1001 may be available?


Re: OT: Sharp Programs - Duane Hess - 04-26-2012

almost had a link for you. there is a link below, which is a scanned copy of the manual for a PC-1212. Have no idea if its similar to what you're looking for. Unfortunately (for me anyways) its a scan of a German version of the manual.

The same site has numerous Sharp products, some in English, some not.

Hi Duane,

Googling finds the following link for the manual:

Sharp 1001 Manual

You can read the manual without logging in. To download it, you'll need to create an account.

Hi again, John.

Regrettably, I've been unable to locate a copy of said Application Programs manual for the Sharp PC-1211. I thought I had a PDF version in English at home but alas, it wasn't to be.

I've also been unable to locate one for you on the net except for a used one on sale in Amazon. I'm sorry for raising your expectations high, perhaps other kind forum posters will be able to effectively help you.

Regards from V.

All I can find is a 50-page booklet, a bit smaller that A4 size, entitled:

Sharp
Pocket Computer Model PC-1211
Beginner's Textbook for "BASIC"

But that's not what you're looking for. Just thought I'd mention it in case it's of interest.

It does have a few trivial, sample programs together with some simple programming exercises and their solutions.

I've had the PC-1211 from new, and I don't remember it coming with an applications book; possibly an optional extra? But it was a long, long time ago now, and I might have forgotten.

I must have been about 16 at the time my poor, long-suffering dad bought it for me. Back then I was excited by the PC-1211, but found it a bit disappointing as it was slower and, ultimately, less useful than the FX-501P and FX-602P Casio calculators I had. An intriguing "computer in your pocket" nonetheless. Still have it in my desk drawer, and it still works perfectly.
