Automatic Conversions?

Many of the programs you publish in COMPUTE! are for several different microcomputers. Do you have utilities that automatically convert a program to another type of computer? Are they available for sale?

J.B. Allen

We call the process of converting a computer program to another computer homogenization. Unfortunately, we do not have, nor have we seen, any utilities that will automatically homogenize a program.

We have a staff of talented programmers that manually goes through programs and homogenizes them. The process can be a laborious one, particularly with machine language programs which often require a byte-by-byte translation.
