The Wasp AppleSoft BASIC Editor for Windows
The WASP AppleSoft BASIC Edior for Windows is shown running under
Windows Vista above. The ProDOS 8 BASIC STARTUP Program is being edited.
WASP is a Windows XP based Applesoft programming tool. It is designed to
work in conjunction with AppleWin ( versions 220.127.116.11 or later ).
AppleWin is an Apple //e emulator for Windows. With WASP you can write
Applesoft programs from scratch or load them from Apple DOS 3.3 or ProDOS
disk images. WASP has standard editing functions as well as optional
syntax color highlighting, a function to remove spaces from a line of code
and the ability to enter control characters. When combined with AppleWin,
WASP lets you run your program with just a click of a button. WASP also
lets you save your Applesoft program to either your Windows drive as a text
file, rich text file or to a disk image ( through AppleWin ). You can
also do simple file functions such as LOCK / UNLOCK, RENAME, DELETE and Set
the Prefix from within WASP. Another feature is the ability to set up
scripted commands ( similar to Applesoft immediate mode ) that can be sent
by clicking a menu item or with an accelerator key. You can also add your
favorite utility programs to a menu in WASP and optionally have them run
automatically when you start WASP.
Included with WASP is documentation and a font ( A2like.ttf ) that mimics
an Apple //e 80 column text character set.
The download file is about 330k bytes and must be unzipped.
The AppleWin Emulator
WASP works in conjunction with the AppleWin Emulator. After editing the
STARTUP program was resaved as a new program in AppleWin by WASP.
AppleWin is shown running the new program under Windows Vista above.
A Windows Vista Folder with both WASP and AppleWin
To make testing easy, both programs and some disk images were
dropped into the same folder.
Windows Vista Version
The Windows Vista and Computer Info where testing was done is shown above.
The same tests were also run under Windows XP SP2 on a comparable machine
and WASP worked as advertised in both environments (as did AppleWin).
