SmartWriter File Viewer

Post by joltguy » Mon Sep 07, 2020 8:17 pm

Hi all

Attached to this post is the first version of my SmartWriter File Viewer written in SmartBASIC. I created this little program because I often find that disk images containing BASIC programs and utilities include some documentation in SmartWriter format. Rather than resetting my ADAM to use the word processor now I can easily view the documentation right inside SmartBASIC.

I'll admit the code is not a work of art however this is the first time I have disassembled one of the built-in BASIC routines (BLOAD) and figured out how to modify it to suit my needs. Not to worry - the program restores the original BLOAD behaviour before ending. Enjoy!

Thanks, definitely planning to do that! I just wanna have a few people here try it out first before committing it to the archive.
