Topic: Type In Listings

I've got a load of old Atari User mags, most of which had type in BASIC listings for games and utilities. Is it possible, using the BASIC ROM on an Atari emulator (personally I use Atari 800Win PLus), to turn a BASIC program into an ATR file?


Re: Type In Listings

Theorically, it can be. What you need to do is converting your basic listing into a binary file (Not an easy task, one form is compiling it into a machine language file, using MMG Compiler Basic or Turbo Basic Compiler; the other choice is using handlers tricks in machine language.), then convert your binary file into a boot file. There are a lot of utilities floating on the net. You'd need to find them to use them.
