The Memotech MTX Series

The Memotech Library

Published Information on the MTX Series

Code Snippets


This page contains snippets of Memotech program code extracted from various period magazines.

This information comes from long defunct publications and all of it is almost 30 years old. I don't imagine that the original copyright holders, if they are still around, are vaguely interested in these pages, but if anyone has issues with me making this information available, let me know and I will remove the offending item(s).

A word about quality : these extracts come from a range of sources and while all are easily readable, some have rather better quality than others. If you have better copies than I have posted here, if you send me a copy, I will update the site.
