Pocket Tools for SHARP Pocket Computers
The Pocket tools are a set of programs with which you can convert between audio records of all Sharp Pocket Computers (from PC-1210 up to PC-G850VS and PC-1100 series) and binary files or text files of a Personal Computer.
and writes all Pocket cassette file types:
1. BASIC source and image from CSAVE
2. BASIC source from Text editor Menu Cmt
or SAVE “CAS:file”,A (ascii)
3. ASCII data from OPEN CAS: or PRINT#n
4. Binary variable data from PRINT#
5. Binary code from CSAVE M
6. ReSerVe mode data from CSAVE
You can edit these files with any editor on your Personal Computer and convert them back to audio files for the Pocket Computer.
You need any sound adaptor or sound card with a microphone input and headphone output. If the Mic input of your adaptor is insensitive, then you should use a mic preamps. For the pocket computer you need an audio interface, usually a cassette interface, that suits your pocket computer.
This way the communications between Personal Computers with all Sharp Pocket Computers should be possible for many years.
