I'm sure there are some of us who still like to do development work on the
real thing, and often being able to list all or part of a source file is
How likely is it to be able to catch the large range of Tandy printers that
were used, and convert their output (usually in various graphics modes) to a
raster image for printing on a Windows printer, or to a PDF or other
graphics file such as jpeg? If this was a possibility then various
programmes which produce graphics output could be used.

Besides a mathematical inclination, an exceptionally good mastery of one's
native tongue is the most vital asset of a competent programmer.
