Das Maschinensprachebuch zm CPC für den CPC 464, 664 & 6128 Data Becker
Topics: Schneider CPC, Amstrad CPC, assembly programming, Z80, german
In order to give instructions to a computer, they must be presented in a very precise form so that the micro can understand and hence execute them.  The Amstrad CPC 6128, 664 and 464 computers have several advantages for creating well-structured programs: they communicate in a form of BASIC that is easily read, their documentations are comprehensive, and both the 664 and 6128 have the distinct advantage in having disk storage — a time-saving element in loading and storing programs.  The...

The novelty of using a microcomputer just for games and screen-based programs soon wears off. How nice it would be, you think to yourself, to use a micro to do something useful.  But, the most useful things involve using a micro to "listen in" to the outside world and, as a result, to take suitable actions. That's when you need to add extra hardware to your 464, 664 or 6128 and you have to know how to control it all  So, this book starts with an easy to learn but in depth approach...

Computing is a skill and, like all other skills, can only be learned by practice. Don't just read this book, but try it out on your Amstrad. A major feature of the 664 is that it includes a disk system. The builtin disk drive provides speed and convenience in loading programs and cataloguing is instant. In the first few chapters the authors introduce you to your 664 and to BASIC with chapters on writing and storing programs, on the use of colour and drawing pictures. The book then covers use of...
