Usborne Releases 1980s Coding Books As Free PDFs

This might be intersting, since all books cover the BASIC programming language which of course was the most used programming language in the 80s.
Here's the link, maybe we can port some listings to our new BASICs. I'll have a look if I can port anything to AllegroBASIC.

I'm fairly confident that all of them can be converted to SpecBAS :D

I might take a shot at converting some of the BBC examples with the Script BASIC BBC extension module.

I like RasPi, retro BASIC books as well.
