Commodore 64 Basic interpreter for DOS
I created TOK64 while converting the 1541 User's Guide from hardcopy to etext for Project 64. The 1541 manual had several BASIC listings which I had to type in since they didn't scan-n-OCR very well. Then, anyone who downloaded the manual and wanted to try the BASIC programs themselves would have had to type them in their Commodore all over again. Wouldn't it be neat if there was a little program that could convert ASCII text listings of Commodore BASIC programs into the actual binary tokenized program suitable for running on an actual C64 or emulator? So the idea for TOK64, or tokenizer for the 64, was born. It doesn't do syntax checking, but it does get the job done.
