I did not know this utility but it seems to be similar to another one called Minicomp and published in A.N.A.L.O.G Computing Magazine #23 (October 1984) page
It was for Atari 800 computer.

The BASIC subset was only 11 instructions:
A=ccc
A=B
A=B+C
A=B-C
END
IF A=B THEN nnn
IF A<B THEN nnn
GOTO nnn
GOSUB nnn
RETURN
A=PEEK(B)
POKE A,B


The 2 main programs on your tape files are a little bit different (for example, the one with example disable the keyboard during the compilation)

I think there are some weird bytes on your tape files.
At first sight:
  • line 2280 (T-COMPSE): A(KEND44)=A0 should be A(K,44)=A0
  • line 2280 (T-COMP): ^A<F9>LEN!FOR4)=A0 should be A(K,44)=A0
  • line 2940 (T-COMP end of line): A(K,40)|216 should be A(K,40)=216
[/list]

2 others differences but I don't know what is the right one:
T-COMPSE:
1310 DATA56,173,53,4,237,0,4,141,53,4,173,54,4,237,0,4,141,54,4

T-COMP:
1310 DATA56,173,53,4,237,0,0,141,53,4,173,54,4,237,0,4,141,54,4

T-COMPSE:
1540 DATA145,122,200,173,0,4,145,122

T-COMP:
1540 DATA145,122,200,173,0,0,145,122

Hello,

Here are :
TCOMPV3 = TCOMPSE with sample from TCOMP, line 2280 corrected like christian's feedback
TCOMPV4 = TCOMPV3 with lines 1310 and 1540 modified like christian's feedback.

I think that the good code is TCOMPV3, with the 173,0,4 sequence which is a LDA $400. There's a lot of points in the data like this and another sample is 141,0,4 (STA $400). The assembler code in the compiler seems to be loaded in page $4 which is compliant with this code.
