BASIC HP9816 - Alberto - 08-19-2004

Does anyone know how to port BASIC HP9816 programs to PC? At least I need to know how to save listings in ASCII format (not tokenized) in LIF diskettes.

Have a look at this.

Best regards from V.

OK, this is fine with HP9000 workstations equipped with HPBASIC, but my 9816 seems to have a Pro-BASIC interpreter that differs from the "Rocky Mountain" in many aspects. In particular it does not support the FORMAT directive, and a lot of commands are not recognized.

The boot message of the interpreter is:

BTS Rev. E2550 Ready.

Does it look familiar to anyone?
