Classic Article Repubs

We hope to republish one or more articles from the Golden Era of the Model T every month:

One-Liners

This is a collection of Microsoft BASIC programs that

  • Do something interesting or useful
  • With only a single line of code

One-liners are bite-sized computer programs on a human scale. You are encouraged to type them in manually (by hand) and study their operation.
