Dear Samuel, I'm sorry that my answer has been delayed this much, but my work has kept me extremely busy, and I think I was on vacation when your first message arrived. There are several solutions to your problem (transferring BASIC 4 programs from a PET 8032 tape to a PC compatible). One is prlink, a program written by me. You need to build a cable that connects the 8032 user port to a PC parallel port. Then, you must type in a small BASIC program on the 8032 that you will use to transfer a small machine language program from the PC. Then, you load a program from the tape and make a suitable memory dump of the PET to the PC with prlink. It's a bit complicated, but the program cannot transfer tape files directly - only via a memory dump. Another alternative is that you build an IEEE-488 cable and run a disk drive emulator on the PC. This should be the simplest way - you won't need any software on the PET. I'm not familiar with these things, but I think Andre Fachat or someone else has developed such a system. It is freely available as well. It is also possible to capture printer data to the PC, but it requires a special cable and some software, which you probably would have to write yourself. I'm sending a copy of this message to the cbm-hackers mailing list, in case someone has more ideas or can elaborate on the IEEE-488 thing.
