Downloadable Disk Images - Programs on the Business disk

Here are a few business applications, lead by the daddy of them all, Visicalc. A few of my own humble efforts also appear on this disk.

Name (and filename) Description What to type at the dos prompt
Visicalc v 1.20z (vc/cmd)
includes supplementary programs visiset/cmd, visisrt/bas and visicon/cmd
The spreadsheet program that at last got business to take microcomputers seriously.
The famous Visicalc. By Software Arts (1980)
Tally Master A spreadsheet-type program by Prosoft (1983) tally/cmd
Home Accountant (budget/bas) My own programming effort. I wrote this both to teach myself BASIC and organise our own home finances. (1983) basic run"budget/bas"
General Database (dbase/bas) Another one of mine, which uses a lot of the same code as the one above. A generic database program. (1984). I actually submitted this to Micro-80 but by that time it had all been done before, and the System-80 use was fading fast. basic run"dbase/bas"
General Ledger (ledger/bas) A third effort of mine. A generic ledger program. basic run"ledger/bas"
Personal Bill Paying
A small program to keep track of those household bills. By Instant Software, (1979) basic run"accounts/bas"
Cost Analysis (costanly/bas) Simple BASIC Program that must have been written for the System-80 rather than the TRS-80 as one of the prompts refers to "New Line" rather than "Return". basic run"costanly/bas"
Household Accounts for Disk v. 4.0 (homeacco/bas) A Micro-80 program (1982). This was from the same folk who sold the magazine. basic run"homeacco/bas"
Barchart (barchart/bas) Stores, retrieves and produces bar charts basic run"barchart/bas"
