  This series is a tutorial explaining in great depth how to program the Psion Organiser II using machine code.
It is not written to explain machine code instructions, this information is available in the the book by Bill Aitken, but rather to show how to handle small machine code programs on the Organiser. It is hoped that these examples will give you the confidence required to try programming your own routines. You will of course need to know how to program OPL. Also a passing knowledge of what bytes and addresses are is helpful, an understanding of hexadecimal numbers is also an advantage, but strictly not necessary.
