There SHOULD be a "full" CD with base AND the other categories, but we would need helpers: To be included on the CD and to work with the auto- mated install process, the programs have to be packaged in ZIP files with some predefined directory structure. The few people (mainly Bernd with a bit of help from Jeremy) who are preparing the CD-ROMs do not have enough time to include all programs on a "full" CD, so at the moment, the "mini" install is "all base binaries" and "full" is just a misleading name for "all base binaries and all base source codes". Any help would be welcome. The last CD-ROM which had ALL categories was beta 8, which is years old. You can of course install beta 9 service release 1 and then take the other programs from a beta 8 CD, but it is probably better to download the programs which you want separately, e.g. SETEDIT editor, OpenWatcom C/C++ and Arachne internet suite (www/mail/ftp). Eric PS to Arkady about FREEVER: Freever can do much more than CALLVER. The problem is that the FREEVER sources got lost, but I have hopes that somebody still has at least a binary. After all, even RBIL describes it! FREEVER is a full clone of SETVER, while CALLVER just sets the reported DOS version and then invokes a new shell instance to run one program. ------------------------------------------------------- This SF.Net email is sponsored by Yahoo.
