And Now, The ROM…

Here is a quickie about setting up the APPLESOFT ROM card.  First, as the instructions indicated, this card will function only in Slot #0 of your Apple ][.  This card allows you to make a choice of whether you want Integer BASIC or APPLESOFT to be called with Control-B after you power up.  If the switch is in the down position, APPLESOFT will be selected.  In addition, it is not necessary to change the switch position to call the non-default BASIC.  If the switch is up, hit “reset” and type C081 followed by Control-B to get Integer BASIC.  If the switch is down, hit “RESET” and type c080 followed by Control-B and return to APPLESOFT.
