The online version of the SBASIC/SuperBASIC Reference Manual can be found at:

*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
This is now a community project and needs the community to update the manual and HTML layout.

Do not expect me to do it.

Hey Rich,

Don't let anyone touch the chapters I've done for you! :D


Cher,
Norm.


Why do they put lightning conductors on churches?
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving!
If you think your job is pointless, remember, there's someone in Germany who fits indicators to BMWs.

I'll do some more as and when I can. I think, hope I took the software home from my previous contract, that I wrote to help with the tidy up.

Cheers,
Norm.

Hi,

I converted it to an ebook in epub and sent it to Rich for comment, no reply... then I got involved in updating the SMSQ/QDOS Reference Manual, download from Wolf Lenerz's web site.


Regards,

Derek

Following a lot of work by Norman, the community edition of the SBASIC / SuperBASIC Reference Manual is now available at:

http://superbasic-manual.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

There are some background notes which appear at:
www.rwapsoftware.co.uk/SBASIC_reference_manual_online

The sources are now on a Github repository - https://github.com/NormanDunbar/SuperBASIC-Manual, although it is best to fork this, make any changes and then do a fork request to get them incorporated back into the original.

Just in time for the RWAP Software 30th Anniversary too!

:D

Hey Rich,

if you use Firefox, or Chrome, then there's a plugin/addition/app that allows you to read Epubs.


Cheers,
Norm.

Sorry Derek, but I never got any of those emails....... :(

Not sure how much that would have helped Norman anyway - as the main problem was that the HTML all needed reformatting to start with - the initial conversion left tables in a right mess
