  1. Where can I find documentation or reference manuals for Think C 5.0? I noticed there is a reference browser in the Think C 5.0 package at Macintosh Garden, but it’s only a demo version. I have the Inside Macintosh set, but I’m interested in any extra functions/features provided by Think C besides those that directly map to the Pascal functions documented in IM. Also, I’m wondering if Think Class Library (TCL) is worth learning (if there is any extant documentation for it) or using non-OOP C is sufficient for, say, a paint program or a HyperCard-like point and click adventure game. I
  2. It's coiled and looks about the same shade of gray as the keyboard, and everything else with the computer works. Also, the keyboard does consistently work with the cable tugged upward, as if something is not making contact properly without the added pressure.
  3. I got one that follows the wiring of the original Mac Plus cord according to my continuity testing with a multimeter.
  4. I have a Macintosh Plus with an intermittently working keyboard. The keyboard works (all keys) when I tug the cord upward near the port on the keyboard. I've tried using another phone handset cord, and I get similar intermittent behavior. I've tried prying the 4 leads in the port up with a string to give it a bit more springiness, but it doesn't help. I'm guessing I'll have to open the keyboard and see if the port's solder joint is weak. Any tips on opening the keyboard and working inside it? Or any other possible cause for this symptom?
  5. Thanks folks! I connected the two computers and they are sharing files via AppleTalk just fine. For posterity, I'll note my procedure. SE/30 is running System 7.1. Plus is running 6.0.8 installed with the AppleTalk workstation option selected. Turn on AppleTalk on both computers in the Chooser. Turn off the computers, plug in the printer cable to the printer port on each computer, and restart. On the SE/30 > Control Panels > Users & Groups, I made a new user called "Plus" with a password. In Control Panels > Sharing Setup, input Ow
  6. I'm trying to connect a Macintosh Plus to an SE/30 to share files using just a printer cable (Apple 8 pin mini-din) on their respective printer ports. Is this possible, or would I need a LocalTalk Connection Kit as this manual suggests https://vintageapple.org/macbooks/pdf/Apple_LocalTalk_Cable_System_Owners_Guide_1987.pdf?
  7. What programming environment and/or compiler did you use?
