Studio IV - Tiny BASIC #Emulator
Marcel van Tongeren
Recently I discovered that RCA developed a Tiny BASIC for the unreleased Studio IV. Thanks to some information I received from Ed (ekeefe8051), I was able to get it running in the Studio IV emulation in Emma 02. Ed is always a great source of information, but prefers to talk one-on-one off the forum.
The VIP/VP700 Tiny BASIC and Studio IV Tiny BASIC are very similar and both use a dedicated pseudo code which is a bit like Chip 8 and other pseudo codes for the 1802. Luck would have it that we found a printed version of both the VIP and Studio IV pseudo code parts, still missing is the original interpreter part for the Studio IV. However with a full version of the VIP and the pseudo code for the Studio IV I have managed to port the VIP interpreter back to the Studio IV and now have a Tiny BASIC version running on the Studio IV.
I will upload binaries and a rough assembly file to the file section. The assembly file is generated by Emma 02 and includes pseudo code in comments.
