Version other than A03 and especially later ones as that is the version I have - but, feel free to reply if you are one of the rare owners! Alan Pemberton mentions version A06 and A07 in his documents and programs on extracting the contents. There is no issue with copyright in me getting copies if you are prepared to do so, in this instance, as we have cleared the rights issues with the original authors so that we can package it up for original owners and others to try it out on emulators etc. I am especially interested if you have any errata sheets etc.

I have found a few bugs testing A03 so would want people to use the latest if they are trying something out.

If anyone has specific issues running it on later hardware etc let me know as we may be able to get it fixed - although if there really are versions A06 and A07 or later out there it may take some while to get the source differences teased back out as A03 is the latest Source code I have.

Tim,

Did you ever manage to find any later copies of The Quill?

We could also do with preserving the QL version of the manual if anyone has one they could scan in :)
