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.

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
