TrueType Font from the Apple II Computer of the 1980s

This is amazing. I can use the font from my beloved 1988 Apple IIc computer for my Win XP and Putty command prompts. (If you had a Commodore, TRS-80, or other computer from the pre-GUI days, you can probably find its font and install it on your computer.)

Here's the Apple font showing Haskell code on a Java-based editor (jEdit). We've come a long way since the days of BASIC programming.

  • Glad you like the font. Maybe I should do a version with a full ANSI character set at some point? Get all those accented characters into a 8x9 grid somehow! (Some time in the next 10 years, once I have some free time. {grin})
