Apple "Thanks to 35-year-old documents that have recently surfaced after three-plus decades in storage, we now know exactly how Apple navigated around that obstacle to create the company's first disk operating system. In more than a literal sense, it is also the untold story of how Apple booted up. From contracts - signed by both Wozniak and Jobs - to design specs to page after page of schematics and code, CNET had a chance to examine this document trove, housed at the DigiBarn computer museum in California's Santa Cruz Mountains, which shed important new light on those formative years at Apple."

It's sad you people would ban the only person who knows about operating systems, and chatter in ignorance, instead.

I like to think about the Apple II BASIC interpreter. It's incredible they made them so small. They even had trig functions, as I recall.

Believe it or not, a simple interpreter is easy. Once you have an interpreter, you can in-line the operations easily and get an unoptimized compiler.

Here's 200-line an unoptimized 64-bit integre expression compiler.

I created that little demo because people are so unbelieving. It's sad. I guess they ban all the smart people everywhere.

I made a video explaining my compiler. As GNU people say, an operating system is incomplete without a compiler.

Please don't ban me. You people sound like close-minded hillbillies who would prefer to chatter in ignorance.
