I have been investigating edits by Donreed; it appears that the story of the 1981 shareholder meeting, which I first noticed in another article, is completely from him, and has no references or sources. Searching on Google, I was unable (in a quick first pass) to find any online references to this, which is pretty odd for such an interesting story, concerning Apple and Steve Jobs. I think it should be left out until some references are located. Brianyoumans 03:38, 24 October 2007 (UTC)
I have rewritten this material to be more accurate. Wigginton didn't write Applesoft BASIC himself; the main codebase was licensed from Microsoft. Accourding to Weyhrich, he was one of the Apple employees who adapted Microsoft's BASIC to the Apple II. I have left in the claim that he wrote the floating-point routines. The problematic ROUND() function (which I was entirely unaware of!) isn't in the ROM version of Applesoft at all; I assume it was in the first ("Applesoft I") release and have added wording to clarify this.

I was working to help clean this article up a bit and attempted to cite all the information to address the tag, but I don't have complete access to the books I believe can help substantiate the claims made about Wigginton's career with Apple and his contributions. Would appreciate some additional input Beifong3 (talk) 01:13, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
