Atari Wiki Manifesto#

This manifesto explains some ideas behind the AtariWiki.

The AtariWiki is a collection of Information about the 8Bit Atari Computer Line mainly intended for programmers. It covers topics specific to the Atari 8bit computers, but also generic programming topics like the 6502 line of processors, Programming languages available for the 8bit Machines and generic programming tips and tricks.

The main language in this wiki is english, however other languages are permitted with the goal to provide a translation into english at one point of time. Multi-Language articles should use the "tab" feature to provide the same article content in different languages, with "english" as the default choice.

One goal of this wiki is to provide a way to collect the pages and articles of this wiki into an book (either printed or eBook). The pages and article should therefor be written similar to pages in a book.

The wiki is a collection of information and knowledge. It should not contain temporary information which would be better served in a blog or discussion forum.

Please do not zip or otherwise compress documents (PDF or DJVU). This Webserver does automatic "on-the-fly" gzip compression, and harddisk space is not an issue. Documents hidden in archives cannot be found by search engines and cannot be read on a mobile device.

If you would like to help the AtariWiki with a pdf file, please use the following parameters for scanning: 24 Bit RGB, color and b-w, 600 DPI, single sided after the original, with incredible good originals 300 DPI may work, too. Thanks.

For audio cassettes with voice, please see here: Intention of the Voice & Data chapter

The AtariWiki is not an official project of the Atari Bit Byter User Club (ABBUC), however some contributors are associated with ABBUC.
