Description[edit]

The title of the magazine is named similair with the BASIC command INPUT, which is using for input datas. The first letters of the subtitles words are together "INPUT 64" (German words Infos, News, Programme, Unterhaltung and Tips). That was also the concept of this computer magazine.

  • "INPUT 64 Special 2": With the assembler editor / monitor INPUT ASS and a assembler course for the chip 6502/6510, also a simulator 6502/6510 and a re-assembler.

The advantage of the thise magazine was, that over the diskmag menu the readers the programs can easily load and start. The software was described in detail in the print computer magazine. The tape and the floppy disk was write protected!
