WordStar and SpellStar – more CP/M Fun on Apple IIe CPM

May 7, 2017

I’m still intrigued by WordStar and SpellStar. So, I installed my MicroSoft SoftCard CP/M card. (March 28, 2017 post) Here I’m running it on my Apple //e using both drives of my DuoDisk. I did a short post last August when running on my Virtual ][ Emulator. ┬áSo, I created so floppies from downloaded images and used ADTPro from my MacBook Pro to my IIGS. The display is on the NightOwl. Also, some of my comments in the text are before I read a WordStar manual. Sometimes you just need to RTFM.

CP/M WordStar on the Apple IIe CPM

August 3, 2016

The WordStar word processor running under CP/M on Virtual II emulator. I also run it on my actual IIe where I have a CPM card installed. I used ADTPro to create the physical floppies from the disk images. I connect from my MacBook to my IIGS to do the transfers and make floppies.

For some reason the pictures posted in reverse order. Start at the bottom to see progression.
