Can anyone point me to a PDF of the Microsoft BASCOM manual(s)? I've checked the usual places (that I know of) and done fruitless searches on Google (might as well have been Yahoo! circa 1999), but no luck yet.

I've got the BASIC-80 reference manual downloads, but they don't include the BASCOM compiler or assembly manuals.

TIA.

I haven't got a manual, but there was a chapter in a book on Mbasic that had a few tips and pointers. I'm at work so I don't have it in front of me, but there were some minor tweaks you needed to do to a typical mbasic program.

This is a little printout showing an mbasic program being compiled by bascom.
