Exelbasic + (Plus)

September 2, 2018

exelbasicplusSome time ago, I acquired an Exeltel VX. Like any other flavour of Exelvisions computers (the EXL100 and the other Exeltels) it has no built-in programming language (in case of the Exeltel VXs this would have been a lesser problem anyway as it wants to be a Videotex terminal). However, if you want to load anything from a cassette (or a floppy disk or a battery-buffered RAM) you need your Basic. Exelvision delivered one with every EXL100, the Exelbasic.

In order not to have to borrow an Exelbasic from a friend (hi, cobrakai!), I bought one from Ebay (which does not appear that often as one wants, especially for a sane price). What I ended up with was not an ordinary Exelbasic, but the improved Exelbasic + (Plus) which I did not even know existed. Instead of a measly 200 pages of (French) manual, you have a 300 page one (also French). I am happy!
