IIRC, there might have been some SuperBasic tutorials in a number of magazines, such as QL User, QL World, QL today, etc. The first two are available on the Internet Archive. QL Today is available from "The Distribution", a large download from Urs Konig.

Hi,

Best to look on QL Hompage, there us much information on SuperBASIC and SBASIC.

Also try looking Tim Swanson's SuperBASIC Source Book and smsqzine, all a good read.

All this is free and up to date, unlike these Sinclair series books

Never hurts to check eBay.
There's quite a few books on there.
Some aren't worth getting, others may be of assistance.
Most books were written before mass storage / extra RAM etc became available.

What sort of mathematical programming are you interested in?

Mostly algebraic equations and calculus. Solving Trigonometry is also very interesting to me as is matrices.
