Why oh why am I so easy to distract. I hope the C64 people forgive me. Triggered by all the buzz about 35th anniversary of the Apple II , I had a look at the platform again and at the mails Nick Westgate wrote me quite a while back. The key issue was that there no such thing as defined executable format on the Apple II. Everything is strictly bound to the DOS and hence to the disk image. But when I realized the possibilities which arise from the idea of creating disk images directly as part of the IDE, I simply had to go and try it. Now WUDSN IDE supports the full develop, compile executable, build image, inspect image and run image required for Apple II. And I have written my first Apple II program to send greetings to the people who helped to make this work.
