Announcing a new project 'Applecorn'. This is an environment to allow
Acorn BBC Micro language ROMs to run under ProDOS on the //e Enhanced.

The project is still quite young and there is much still to do. However
after only a couple of weeks of development I have been able to get four of
the BBC Micro languages to run:

- BBC BASIC (with inline assembler)
- Acornsoft COMAL
- Acornsoft Forth
- Acornsoft MicroProlog

I am working on getting Lisp and BCPL to work.

Happy Kfest!

All the best,
Bobbi

That is very exciting! It is IMO by large the best version of BASIC ever made.
Looking forward to downloading it.
