Back In August I took delivery of a boxed Apple IIe in excellent working condition. I had used an earlier Apple II at university in 1982/83 to learn Pascal and hoped to find a set of Pascal diskettes which I duly did a couple of weeks later. I didn't want to try and do too much with the original disks so also managed to find a pack of 5 unopened 5.25 inch DS DD floppies and worked out from the Pascal Manual how to make copies using the Filer.
Because the Apple II only came with a single floppy drive almost any operation involves plenty of disk swapping. Copying a 280K disk takes around 20 swaps.
Creating a simple Hello World program is similar you need to use a boot diskette with both Editor and Compiler but these are split betwen APPLE0: and APPLE1: so I created a copy of APPLE0:, removed Filer and added the Editor. That leaves a few Kbytes for the program. Below is the result, after around 2-3 hours effort!
