You willfind yourself being asked to run a menu program called "WINDOWS", run aprogram selector program called "Byrd's Better Bye" or simply quitting to Basic.WINDOWS is much like our own Menu.Maker program in that it will allow youto read and print text files, look at graphics files or run Basic files.  Itcan do more, though.  It will run any "SYSTEM" file (much like a SOS.INTERPfile) and it will also read AppleWorks text files (and print them).Byrd's Better Bye gives you a selection of SYSTEM files you can run or"launch" depending on what you'd like to do.By the way, you can turn over this disk and press the <CONTROL> key and"M" key at the same time to get a catalog and run any program or read any file.Side Two also has the Windows menu program on it (but NOT ProDos).Some of these programs may require an "Enhanced Apple //e" towork.  That means you will need to have a 65c02 chip installed in yourmotherboard (It replaces the original 6502A or B CPU (Central ProcessingUnit) chip).  You can get one for less than $10.00 from:                  Jameco Electronics                  1355 Shoreway Road                  Belmont, CA. 94002                  (415)-592-8097 (Order Hotline)Send $2.00 for a catalog.  They will be free after your first order.   Beaware that Jameco requires a minimum order (seems to depend on ordering fromad or catalog).  Need help to install this chip?

APPLE-3-WAP-emm-09a.dsk [Catalog]APPLE-3-WAP-emm-09b.dsk [Catalog]WAP /// SIG PD LIBRARYPDS NAME: DOUBLE BOOTDISK #  : APPLE-3-WAP-EMM-09BOOTABLE: YES         I went about constructing this disk fairly objectively.I had read that putting together a "double-booting disk" should be easy:        The book "Beneath Apple ProDos" (by Don Worth and Pieter Lechner)says this:"Block 1 on a ProDos volume contains the SOS boot loader. This program isloaded instead of Block 0 when booted on an Apple ///.  It searchs thedirectory for SOS.KERNEL and loads it instead of ProDOS. This means that adiskette can be constructed which will boot either ProDOS or SOS and run anapplication on either an Apple // or Apple ///."        And the book Inside Apple's ProDOS (by John Campbell) says:"... In Chapter nine it was mentioned that blocks 0 and 1 on a ProDOSdiskette store the boot code.  This code reads the operating system softwareand executes that code.  What was not mentioned was that this boot code willrun on either the Apple // computers or on an Apple ///.As you power up either an Apple // or Apple /// computer system, with aProDOS diskette installed, the boot code read into memory and executed isloaded at 2048=$800.  The first item of business for this boot code is todetermine whether the software is running on an Apple // or an Apple ///computer system.  Once this code makes that determination, then either:-PRODOS, for the Apple // family-SOS.KERNEL for the Apple /// computerwill be loaded.  If the correct file is not found for the computer beingused, an error message is displayed.The implication of this is that a single application may be written andplaced on a single diskette that could be run on either computer.  Thissingle diskette could then be sold to owners of either Apple // computers orApple /// computers."        So I decided to try it.  After formating a disk, I copied ProDOS andBasic.System, then the three SOS files.  It didn't work.  It would boot onone machine but not the other.  I tried copying the SOS files first, but thatdidn't work either.        Then I remembered that Frank Moore of Pair Software had issuedGoForth, a Forth language program, as a double-boot disk.  I decided to takethe lazy way out and copied the boot disk, replaced Forth.System withBasic.System and replaced SOS.Interp for the Basic Sos.Interp.  It worked.        A block editor did indeed show that the SOS boot code was in Block 1.I'm not quite sure why I could not do it by just formatting and copying butthe end result is that we DO have a properly set-up double-boot disk that youmight enjoy trying out.        On Side One is this file and all the others that go into making a/// SIG boot disk.  On the ProDOS side, you'll find the 1.1.1 version for///ers who have Titan ///+//e cards.  If you have a //e or GS, you canreplace it with a later version.  A WAP ProDOS menu program is also included.        On Side Two you'll find just the three SOS boot files and the twoProDOS boot files.  Copy the volume and then replace the Interp orSystem files as needed.  But in the end, you'll have a disk that can beused on either machine.  Obviously there will be some space limitations due tothe overhead of all the files.  But we think you'll find this disk interestingand useful!Dave OttaliniWAP /// SIGMarch 26, 1990JANUARY 16, 1995

Yes - Side One           Yes - Side Two with Titan ///+// CardSide One of this Apple ][ Emulation disk mades some changes to the old 48Kemulation disk (just insert into .D1 and turn on your ///). Side Two makes manyof the same changes (see additional note below) but can only be used with theTitan ///+// card.1. EMULATION MENUS: The Apple ][ menus indentify the enhancements on this Apple][ Emulation.2. LOWER CASE CHARACTERS: The standard disk does not provide lower casecharacters and this version doesn't either; However, a version of the 48KEmulation having lower case is available.3. SERIAL CARD: The original 48K Emulation disk is hardcoded for 300 baud, 7bit, mark parity) and can be changed via the menu on the disk version. However,if put on the hard disk via Catalyst, the emulation menu routine does not updatethe code and the hardcode (300 baud) is always in effect. Catalyst 2.1implements a menu routine which actually writes to the emulated ROM code butinto the wrong places; Do NOT use the Catalyst 2.1 installed Emulation.   This disk has its hardcode set to 1200 baud (still 7 bit, mark parity).4. ESC+ cursor: In Business BASIC, the ESC cursor, screen edit mode is indicatedby the flashing + character.  With this patch, the Applesoft BASIC, IntegerBASIC and Monitor ESC cursor, screen edit mode is indicated by a flashingOpen-Apple character for DOS 3.3 (ProDOS intercepts this enhancement).   (See the old Apple ][ Reference manual (bottom of Page 35) for the use of theESC cursor, editing moves using the \IJKM\ keys; Standard for the Apple ][, theIJKM, under the ESC mode, work like the Apple /// cursor keys. This very handyfor running Apple ][ programs directly from the catalog listing).   (This patch is has the target locations, FECE.FEDA in place of the old WRITEtape code, FD11.FD14, FD2F.FD31, FBA2.FBA4, and FD39.  See CALL  A.P.P.L.E March1983, p. 51).5. RESET   This modification allows the booting of another Apple ][ application diskwithout rebooting the Emulation Disk. To quit one apple ][ program disk, forexample, one game to start another:    Press the  RESET  key    Insert the new application disk into the built-in drive and type (without thespaces):   6  CTL-P  RETURN   and the new disk will boot.   This same procedure will allow recovery from a lockup of an Apple ][ programmost of the time.   (The RESET and NMI vectors are modified to point to the old Apple ][ monitorroutine. This modification is at target locations FFFA.FFFD.  See Softalk, July1983, p. 219).6. The Apple ][ + does not have UP and DOWN cursor keys.  Thus the Apple ][Emulation Disk for the Apple /// only worked with the LEFT and RIGHT cursor keysor with the JKLM cursor keys in ESCAPE Mode.   This disk has been modified so the UP/DOWN cursor keys work in the ESCAPEmode. The JKLM cursor keys do NOT work in ESCAPE mode on this disk.   The code changed to enable the UP and DOWN cursor keys is at the Apple ][target locations:   a) The table, XLTBL at FB11.FB18   b) The Code at FBA5.FBB2   c) FBB3:EA  is and should not be changed; This location is used by some          programs to identify the 48K Apple ][+ .   d) The Code at FBB4.FBB7   Programs which make calls to the middle of the above code ranges may notfunction properly and may even lock up the System; However, such programs areexpected to be the exception, not the rule.On Side Two: 64K Emulation Modifications.All the modifications mentioned above for the 48K emulation disk have also beenmade on the 64K emulation disk (for use with the Titan ///+//e card. Dale notes,however, that ProDos intercepts his "up/down" cursor patches. There are someother, undocumented, patches.  This 64K version is still DOS by the way -copyable with System Utilities, but NOT readable.
