Compute! was an American home computer magazine that was published from 1979 to 1994. It provided numerous "type-in" source code listings for a wide variety of utilities, programs, and games, for nearly every successful home computer platform marketed. Compute!'s "type-in" listings were discontinued after April 1988.
In the 1980s, the magazine was so successful that it launched several "spinoff" publications with the same format but a focus on a single computer platform - for example, Compute!'s Gazette focused on Commodore computers, and Compute!'s Atari ST focused on Atari computers.
The magazine occasionally also offered an extended media service - for a fee, all of the "type-in" programs presented in an issue would be provided on a diskette, already typed in and ready to run. For an example of this, refer to the image gallery for an advertisement.
