DiscoRunner helps you learn to program by example! While not a true emulator, DiscoRunner simulates Applesoft and Integer BASIC, supports 40 column, 80 column, GR and HGR modes (including shape tables), has mouse-driven paddle support, and has rudimentary 6502 emulation (for assembler sound routines.)  Also, it requires no Apple ROM file.
