Bob Spelten jr. has kindly sent me zips of Prowess apps PFlist and PWfile,
which have been added to the Prowess (I suppose more correctly I should say
ProWesS which is how PROGS used to type the name) page on my site at
So FSearch and PWSbasic seem to be the remaining apps to find now.

I attach an email correspondence I had with Joachim van der Auwera back
in 2013 about the status of the other ProWess programs.
You will see that he stated that they were all made open source so any
missing programs from the suite can be sent to Dilwyn for uploading to

Unfortunately though, I am unsure whether I still have sources (other than
what is on the site) in a recoverable way. It seems the backup disks I
have are next to useless because my IOmega ZIP drive no longer functions.
ZIP disks have been sent to Urs Kï¿½nig who is trying to recover them.

I hope you are keeping well.
i know that ProWesS was released into the public domain some time ago,
but it is not clear what the position is regarding your other software:
Whilst the sources are provided for things such as the DataDesign BASIC
engine, the actual compiled version is not available on your site.
I was wondering if all of these are now public domain, or whether you
wish to retain them as commercial programs?
Certainly it would make sense to offer the download of the BASIC engine
