Classic Article Repubs
We hope to republish one or more articles from the Golden Era of the Model T every month:
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.
Tandy Disk Drive and Emulators
TPDD emulators, in concert with a compatible disk clients like TS-DOS, TEENY, POWR-DOS, FLOPPY.CO, the Booster Pak, or the WP-2 built-in Diskette client are the most "advanced" way to accurately and quickly transfer all file types including binary files to and from your Model T laptop. There are different options for the server side on modern operating systems and devices:
LaddieCon is a TPDD emulator for Windows written in C#.Net.
DLPilot is a TPDD emulator for PalmOS devices.
DLPlus is a TPDD emulator for Linux, BSD, and MacOSX.
NADSBox is an advanced stand-alone TPDD emulation device that uses SD cards. It implements multiple levels of TS-DOS directory extensions
Desklink is a DOS based TPDD emulator which implements a single-level of the TS-DOS directory extensions
TS-DOS is a nice DOS and GUI available in RAM and ROM versions. It is the only client that supports subdirectories given special servers (no real TPDD supports subdirectories).
TEENY is a very small RAM-based TPDD client
LAPDOS is a DOS PC based TPDD client.
PDD is a DOS PC based TPDD client.
WP2 Diskette Mode is a TPDD client built-in to the WP-2. It is compatible with LaddieCon, DLPilot, and DLPlus.
