Apple III Record Processing Services (RPS)

I recently got ahold of an Apple III software package I had never really heard of before, the Apple III Record Processing Services (RPS). It provides libraries that allow developers to add database functionality to their applications. At this point, I have not explored it or really tested it out, I have only just scanned it. I will probably come back to this post later to update it with more information, but, for the moment, here is what came in the package. It was not sealed, and I did not get a packing list, but I think the packing list was the only thing I was missing.

  2. Hi there

    Get info on a mysterious piece of Apple III Software. One thing I did notice is that the above link for the ‘Errata: Record Processing Service (RPS) Programmer’s Manual’, opens the ‘Software License Agreement’.

    Thanks again for the interesting info on the Apple III.
