    Default NEC APC: In Search of Software

    So, I've got a NEC APC but not a whole lot to really show off what it can do - it seems like one of the bigger user groups, Nexworld, maintained a freeware library. I've had a hard time finding high or low of it, though - anyone know where I might track down mirrors if they've been archived? Thanks!

    This was 1985, NexWorld was a magazine published by Spectrum International
    Unless a BBS picked it up, and someone saved that, there is zero chance there would be a mirror.

    Ah, darn. As an aside, the Byte Magazine writeup on the APC alludes to NEC having ported PTOS BASIC to the APC under CP/M-86 (well, more adapted - PTOS was the APC's native OS in it's original japanese iteration). Has that ever turned up or was that not sold with production machines?
