I have recently come into posession of an old Tandy Color Computer 3 (coco3). I found it at my grandmother's place who agreed to let me have it. So i fiddled with it and got nowhere. If any of you could give me some links to learn BASIC that would be great. There is a built in BASIC compiler in it, but the thing is, I don't know how to write that much BASIC, beside the "hello world" program. XD
If someone could help me, that would be great.

Maybe you could sell it as an antique?

Well, I would rather keep it. Because if I give it away, then that means I won't have it. So if you could give me a link to learn how to use it, then that would be awesome.

Don't number your lines if you can avoid it, it makes adding things later very hard. Labels and GOTO are more useful IMO.

I have only written BASIC on a C64 and Acorn RISC OS/2 machines (and QBASIC on Win95, not including anything like VB that ironically looks nothing like BASIC) so that advice may not be relevant on a tandy

Thanks for the help guys.
If any of you know where I can get some hardware for my Tandy COCO 3 I would love to know.
