The following magazines give a review of Microsoft QuickBASIC Version 1.00 for Apple Macintosh:

  1. "Microsoft QuickBASIC 1.0," MacWorld Magazine, February 1989; Pages 240-241
  2. "QuickBASIC Comes to the Macintosh," Byte Magazine, January 1989; Pages 223-228

Please note the error in Byte, Page 228. A sentence in the second paragraph incorrectly implies that a coprocessor will help speed up the decimal math version of QuickBASIC. A coprocessor will only help speed the program if you compile in the Microsoft QuickBASIC (b) binary math version and select the "Generate 68881 Code" option.

These reviews may interest customers who are thinking about buying QuickBASIC for the Apple Macintosh.
