SWEET16 : Nice VM from Woz ..

Post by ibisum » Mon Mar 02, 2015 3:00 pm

This is a very interesting article:

http://www.6502.org/source/interpreters/sweet16.htm

.. in which Woz describes the SWEET16 extension "16-bit VM" he invented for use in some Apple ][ machines .. thought some of you guys might appreciate reading the details of some historic bit of computing.

Sweet16 is very interesting indeed. Just month ago I posted on forums.oric.org my very quick and dirty "port" for Oric of the original Woz source.
Here you are:
woz-sweet16.zip
(3 KiB) Downloaded 121 times
The test code at end of the source copies first line 10 times.
In the other forum user called "assinie" wrote very interesting details about sweet16 too.
