The novelty of using a microcomputer just for games and screen-based programs soon wears off. How nice it would be, you think to yourself, to use a micro to do something useful.  But, the most useful things involve using a micro to "listen in" to the outside world and, as a result, to take suitable actions. That's when you need to add extra hardware to your 464, 664 or 6128 and you have to know how to control it all  So, this book starts with an easy to learn but in depth approach...

Amstrad have produced a remarkable range of computers. Nevertheless, many owners are unable to unleash their full potential. Why? Chiefly because they have not made the transition from computer user to computer programmer. The aim of this book is to ease that transition. It will enable you to use AMSTRAD BASIC to solve realistic problems. In other words, it will turn you from a passive user into an active one - no longer dependent solely on pre-packaged programs but also able to explore the...
