Type-In programs, or just type-ins, are normally Amstrad BASIC program listings printed in a computer magazine or book, meant to be typed in by the reader in order to run the program. Very common in the early years of the Amstrad era. The list is compiled from the user uploads on www.amstrad.dk (N/A any more) but please add any type-ins you have.
