This is a package of programs on two cassettes which is designed to show you how to communicate with and use your Dragon 32 microcomputer.
Because your computer understands the Basic language, this Tutorial will teach you how to write programs in BASIC.
No special or prior knowledge is required to use this tutorial.
The Cheshire Cat Basic Tutorial consists of:
Tutorial Parts 1 and 2 which introduce you to the fundamentals of programming in BASIC.
Practical Parts 1 and 2 which give practice in the rules learnt in the Tutorial and include Problems, Hints and Answers.
The Tutorial proceeds in short steps through the fundamental rules of BASIC, allowing you at any time to go back a step. It is interactive which means that you are presented with the rule to be learned, shown examples of its use and taken through a short question/answer session to establish that rule.
Practical 1 is intended to be used after Tutorial Part 1 to ensure complete understanding of the rules learnt so far and to give essential practical experience.
Practical 2 should follow Tutorial Part 2 and presents some interesting problems for you to solve on your computer.
Instructions to load and run the Tutorial are included.
Complete this Tutorial and you will be well on the way to taming your Dragon!
