Yeah, the VX-4 is totally different from the 850/880, but it's apparently very similar (and possibly identical) to the 870.

I was able to find a decent BASIC reference at least:

And this simple C program compiles and runs as expected:

main() {
    int d;
    printf("Enter a number: ");

Note that you use ¥ instead of a backslash, as with many Japanese computers from this era.

I tried declaring main with an int return type, but it throws a syntax error, so who knows what standard this thing adheres to. Smile
