MSX2 Technical Handbook

This is the (almost) full reference of the MSX2 system as published by ASCII Corporation in 1987. I converted it to text files in 1997 (the OCR used consisted of my eyes and my fingers) and now here it is in markdown format for easier browsing and reading. There’s also the BASIC KUN (also known as Turbo-BASIC) compiler reference as a bonus.

These are the book chapters, chapters 4 and 5 are split in two files each due to their size:

The original text files are in the txt directory.
