I was just looking in some older Quantas and read the article on Minix for the QL. Basically, you take the Atari ST source code (available from Prentice-Hall), and add some changes done by Felix Croes (which he would send you). I don't know of someone made a distribution of the differences

One of the few QL programs that was written in the US and sold in the UK is Concept 3D, a 3D wire frame graphics program, written by Robert Fingerlee. I don't know who sold it, but like other dealers, the rights to the original program might not be back in the hands of the Author. Back

Did TKII come with the Level II drivers (that supported Subdirectories) or was that a separate piece? I know my Gold Card came support for Subdirectories and I thought that was with TKII. For using UQLX, having Subdirectory support would be very usefull. Tim Swenson

Another option in the SuperBasic book issue, is to write one from scratch. Wasn't there a series of articles in QL Today on beginning SuperBasic? If so, we could use that as a start (if the author is willing) and go from there. Heck, a number of people could be volunteer to write chapters

It was my impression that when Quanta last printed the book, they owned the rights. My copy was printed in 1989 and it says quite clearly: Copyright 1989 Quanta So, either Quanta does own the rights, or the book I have is wrong. Either way, I think it would be nice to see it published
