Does anyone know how the earliest Atari 2600 programmers wrote and debugged their code? I mean, if you were going to work for Atari Corp. in 1977 programming games for the Atari 2600 what system would you have used to write your games? Such an early era would seem to preclude the use of a microcomputer for programming so did Atari have a corporate PDP or VAX minicomputer or something for the programmers to develop on?
