My university library doesn't have it, but the catalog does list the
table of contents with author names. I guess it's the book you're
talking about, although the catalog only lists Hoc as the editor.

> I would like to collect a full set of the chapters from the

> among the PPIG site resources.
> The reason for this request is that I will be teaching a
> Masters-level course on usability of programming languages in the
> coming year, for which I think this is the best possible
> textbook. The original book has been out of press for many
> years, so it would be very difficult for my students to gain
> access to it other than via electronic copies.
> 30 minutes with Google has determined that Francoise Detienne has
> placed her chapter online (thanks Francoise!), but I couldn't
> find any others.
> In absence of actual text, I would be very grateful for:
> - contact with authors of the original chapters; or
> - current email addresses of the authors; or even
> - file containing the table of contents with author names.
