Household Accounts Under Newdos

Many thanks indeed for the free software pack. I was particularly interested in the Home Accounting Software Package and on trying to run it on my Model 1 first up found one not so obvious 'bug' in the program for which I received the error message Syntax error in line 8 but after listing out the program discovered the actual problem lay in line 250 and that in fact there was no line 8 After trying to edit line 250 I discovered that it actually extended beyond 250 characters and so I had to cut out some of the unnecessary spaces. Line 250 lists the main menu of the accounting program (options 1 to 8). After making that correction the program worked fine. So I feel if others are having trouble debugging it this may help to put them on the right track. Actually in the end I had to retype the whole of line 250 again which reads

First, I would like to explain what TRS-Xenix is and what is meant by multi-processing multi-user. TRS-Xenix is derived from the powerful UNIX operating system developed by Bell Laboratories. UNIX has been extensively field-tested for the past decade and has demonstrated outstanding performance under heavy workloads. The TRS-Xenix core is a derivative of this powerful UNIX system. The core comes with only those modules needed to run the current application software such as the Model 16 COBOL Accounting Software and Multiplan, but it can be enhanced with the purchase of the Development System which adds about 250 additional modules to the system. The development system with the powerful C language is for advanced programmers developing multi-user software but also contains many other powerful features such as an on-line UNIX reference manual, system maintenance, system status information, electronic mail, spelling dictionary with over 20,000 words, text editors, a sort utility,...

Mr Smith Buys a House and Visi Calc Helps Him Select the Best Financing

The hour had come for Smith to buy a house. Not only had the accountant pointed out certain tax advantages, but Mr. Smith and Mrs. Smith had both come to the conclusion that before long they would be needing a bit of extra room. In only a few moments and after a few questions, she was able to print out for Smith a detailed mortgage amortization for several different financing situations and price levels. Smith could take that print out to his accountant and discuss alternatives in a reasonable fashion.

Which TRS-80* Accounting Software Do Buy That's a tough question. I know, I asked it myself not very long ago. I'm Mike Motta. As president of Shawmut Systems, specialists in TRS-80* custom software, my customers were asking me for Model II and 16 Accounting Software GL, AR, AP and Payroll. But I said Why write the software. There must be a good package already available. So I searched for the best I could find. And I found it Now, when I tell you that these are the best Accounting programs I've seen on a microcomputer, you probably think that you are just listening to another sales pitch. But you're not. You're listening to a businessman with over twenty years combined experience in sales, management, and programming. So when I say that these programs will work for you, it really means something.

After you have MEMSYS up and running on your favorite operating system, try putting a data disk in drive one, a data disk in drive zero, and copying files, one at a time, between disks. Who says you need three drives Sure it's nice to have that many drives, but we don't all need this much storage. If you're running NEWDOS, there will still be a short delay before any CMD function is executed. NEWDOS still must move BASIC and its pointers up against the bottom of the MEMSYS system before it can execute the DOS command. Try running some of the Radio Shack accounting software and see how much faster it runs. We haven't done any benchmark tests, but we noticed that disk accesses seem to be almost instantaneous. In many cases where disk accesses were formerly required, they now operate without any delay. A new freedom from the confines of DOS are now available to you.

The year 1981 is fast coming to a close. For accountants this is especially significant It is projection time. Needless to say, projection time is always quite valuable but this year the passage of the Tax Act of 1981 has created unique situations. The mechanics of the law and the effect of taxable income have received wide publicity. Woe to the accountant who fails to advise clients of possible benefits or pitfalls Because taxpayers will never get data to the accountant on time, we still have to process an enormous amount of information in a very short time. The best use of microcomputers in the tax preparation process is in the data entry phase. Of all data processing devices currently available, micros are least capable of handling large volumes of printing and processing. The average configuration is usually equipped with slow speed disk storage and character printers. Even a fast character printer has rates under 100 lines per minute.

Accounts Receivable

Our accountant uses this to prepare his own billing, however, the best use of this program would be a company that normally bills most of it's customers on a flat rate monthly basis such as a small garbage company or a small leasing company. Each control Is set up on a pair of diskettes and can handle 328 accounts. A disk record is maintained of the last 18 transactions per customer. Each customer is assigned an account number by the machine when first entered. Customer lists can be listed in alphabetical order or in order of account number. Bills are printed on plain white tractor feed paper (not preprinted) and take 55 seconds per bill to print (average). Accounts with a zero balance do not print. Accounts can be deleted when no longer needed. Sorts are done quickly except when initially entering a name into the system. We feel that a little time taken at the beginning is well worth the speed thereafter. Posting is rapid but one has the chance to correct errors. At the end of each...


Yes -1 do have a PC an Amstrad PPC640D. It was the first affordable laptop on the market - something I desperately needed for my work as a peripatetic accountant. I would dearly have loved to stick with my familiar Model 4(lll) using 'Trader , 'Time Recording System , 'TRS Incomplete Records System , Visicalc, AIDS III, SuperScripsit, etc., but the sheer weight defeated me.

I have modified WORDSTAR from MICROPRO to operate on this system and have just completed modification to WORDMASTER to work as a replacement for CP M's ED.COM to allow full screen editing without the printing features of WORDSTAR. I have been able to run the Osborne accounting systems in addition to other software programs that I have written. Conversion was not difficult. My company has its own business accounting software and, due to this modification, have markets in THREE areas - (1) TRS-80 and (2) CP M normal for both 8 and 5 1 4 drives and (3) TRS-80 CP M such as sold by FMG Corporation and LIFEBOAT Associates. This CP M is NOT compatible with the normal programs on the market and can only work with machine language programs modified to work above the ROM in the Radio Shack unit. I have found that the disks formatted by my system are readable by a MODEL II that is using CP M 2.0. An additional utility program now released by OMIKRON is a program to take...
