THANKS ......................................RYAN ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Thu Aug 20 10:02:27 1987 ** YES! The first thing you need is something called a "T-handler". It is a machine language program that tells your computer how to talk to a 1030. One such program was presented in ANTIC, an ATARI-dedicated magazine, a year or two ago. Check with the user groups for a magazine library. Another source might be the TAP disk library if you are a member: their disk with AMODEM71 on it includes a program that boots in the handler built into the 1030 itself. Once you have the handler in your computer, just OPEN #x,12,x,"T:" and you're in business. Incidentally, don't try to use an 850 with your 1030--it won't work. Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
