REGNECENTRALEN  Regnecentralen
RC 700 Piccolo

Regnecentralen was a governmental agency founded in 1955 in order to build and run DASK (the first Danish computer), and for doing research in the computer field.

The RC 702 Piccolo (RC 700 was the series) was thus used by most schools in Denmark. It was equiped with a Z80A microprocessor, could be shipped with one or two built-in 5" floppy disc drive and ran CP/M.

The system supported CP/M and UCSD PASCAL, but was usually shipped with RC COMAL-80, a programming language which was used extensively in Danish schools for many years. COMAL was quite popular as a teaching language, especially in Scotland.

This was my first computer experience. The Comal 80 book had a gold-colored cover. The computer was used for our school''s administration and had two 8" floppy drives. (No 5" drive) I believe the floppy could hold 1Mb of data, ~900Kb formatted.

We have made the website http://rc700.dk dedicated to the RC759 PICCOLINE and RC750 Partner (maybe PICCOLO in the future). On this website, one can download manuals and disk images, and an emulator for the system is also available. New information is frequently added.

We are very interested in getting more software and user manuals. If you have anything you think could contribute to the site, please let us know - we have the equipment to read floppy disks compatible with those systems, and try to rescue as much software as possible. See the Software section on the website for more information.

I learned the basics of my current IT job on this machine. You could install the spreadsheet Multiplan, the predecessor of Excel from Microsoft and use Wordstar as a text application. Also the CRT was with amber or green characters. When reading the floppy it made a loud ticking noise.
