A single source of the important software aspects of laboratory personal computer usage featuring examples for the Apple, IBM, and CPM-based microcomputer systems. Written with the novice in mind, using primarily Interpreted BASIC, the book contains advanced concepts of filing and program management, modular and structured programming, programming in C, assembly language programming, numerical analysis and modeling, and much more which should be of value to the computer--aware researcher. Hardware is not ignored, but the discussions are focused primarily on readily-available packaged interfaces and communications boards for the personal computer. Includes software examples for the Apple, IBM-PC and CPM. The extensive appendix includes ``worked-out'' example application programs and an overview of the more popular operating systems which may be run on laboratory computers.
