Mattel Aquarius hints & tools

Quick start

zcc +aquarius -lm -create-app -o adventure adv_a.c


zcc +aquarius -subtype=ansi -lm -create-app -o adventure adv_a.c

The binary converter (appmake) will create two files: _adventure.caq and adventure.caq

The first one is the BASIC loader, and the second one is the binary block. They should be loaded in sequence; type CLOAD, play the first file, then type RUN and play the second one.
