Latest release of ProDOS is 2.4.3

ProDOS 2.5 alpha 8 pre-release is available


  • Written by Steve Nickolas (@Usotsuki)
  • Great for compilation disks, this tiny program can be used instead of Basic.System.
  • This is NOT a BASIC interpreter but a ProDOS wedge for BASIC
  • Requires only 1 block on disk vs 21 blocks for Basic.System
  • Loads and runs Binary and Basic programs launched by Bitsy Bye.
  • Provides two commands:
    • &"Filename" runs a Binary or Basic program.
    • & by itself will quit back to ProDOS.
  • Minibas was created to supply a small launcher for BAS and BIN programs on top of Bitsy Bye.
  • Minibas’ BASIC.SYSTEM can execute BASIC/BIN programs, and it quits to the monitor automagically when started.
  • Minibas is not a full-fledged BASIC.SYSTEM, but it works enough for ProDOS 2.4.1+.
  • Minibas automatically exits to the menu system, and the menu system chains it when it needs to load a non-SYS program.
