Sybex πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ 1983

BASIC EXERCISES FOR THE ATARI is a practical and entertaining way to learn programming with Atari BASIC. Through progressive, step-by-step examples, you will learn the fine points of the language and learn how to write your own programs.

Use your Atari to:

  • compute taxes
  • forecast sales
  • calculate rate of growth
  • find the average of a sequence of measurements
  • calculate mean, variance, and standard deviation
  • play games

The exercises are explained in detail, and include a statement and analysis of the problem, flowcharts, programs and actual runs. This book, and a little practice, will have you using your Atari for many accounting, statistical, and financial tasks, in no time at all. All of the exercises will run on both Atari 400 and Atari 800 models, as well as the new Atari 1200XL.
