Nascom Program Library

When 80-BUS News absorbed INMC80 we also acquired a quantity of programs from the program library. We now need the valuable space that they are occupying and so here are some offers that you can’t refuse!! All of the programs are ones which were sent in by INMC members and are source code listings on A4 paper. In order to dispose of them quickly we are offering them at ‘giveaway’ prices, but must insist on a minimum program order of £1. As we run out of certain lines we will make up the value of the order with alternative programs. Postage is 30p per UK order and 60p overseas.

These offers hold until January 31, 1983 and after that date the program library will be permanently closed.
