|This is a list of all the books which were published for the
Oric range of computers. It covers all known books printed in
English and published in the UK. A few books of French origin are
also included and this section has been expanded thanks to Dbug.
Oric users from all countries are encouraged to forward any relevant
book information. Any mistakes in the documents are mine - please
help correct them. There are two files available which can be
downloaded for viewing in spreadsheets. Both have been zipped to
minimise downloading time. The first file is for Lotus 123 Release
9. A conversion to the Excel format is also supplied below for those
using this program. I do not have access to Excel so have no idea
how this file will look when you open it or whether the conversion
process has butchered the formatting.

mentioned in the above files.
|The Oric 1 Program Book
By Vince Apps
|This was one of the first program books I ever
got, in fact I am pretty sure it was the first one. A good book for
a complete novice to see how BASIC can be used. The zip file below
contains a Sedoric DSK image containing all the programs in the book
(converted to the Atmos where necessary) and a text file describing
each file and giving further information. Special thanks to Bertrand
Poupeau for converting Roadrunner to the Atmos. Extra special thanks
to Vince Apps for allowing the distribution of the programs
contained within this book. All programs taken from this book remain
copyright of Vince Apps.
|This is a useful little utility taken from the pages of the
French Oric magazine Theoric. It is written by André
Guichardon. It produces a catalogue of all the files on a tape. Run
the program and the titles, start and end addresses and type of
program (B for BASIC, C for machine code) will be displayed onscreen
and output to a printer. To prevent the output to the printer type:
POKE#10CD,60 before running the program. You will also need to set
the program up to detect fast or slow recordings. To do this, enter
POKE#24D,0 for fast recordings or POKE#24D,1 for slow recordings
before running the program. If you wish to stop the program and
regain control of the Oric you will have to do a soft reset. Thanks
to Andre Majorel for sending me a copy of the article.
