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