Manuals for freeware version?

Recommended Posts

I trust you mean printable manuals. They are included in all freeware packages. However, it turned out that our version control system was messed up a little bit. So Native XDS-x86 for Windows and its TSCP add-on were packaged without the printable manuals.

We have just refreshed those packages, so if you need the PDFs, just download them again and reinstall.

So far I have not been able to locate a printable version of the "ISO Modula-2 Language Reference" document (as the one accessable online as isom2.html). I think I unzipped all downloaded files but, possibly, I missed something. Can anyone advise me if this document (in pdf format) is somewhere among downloadable files ?

This is not a critical issue. I just wanted to have a complete set of all XDS related documents.

Kind Regards

Robert

I re-installed all four components of the Windows based version of the XDS and I still cannot find the "ISO Modula-2 Language Reference" document in pdf format.

I have Wirth's "Programming in Modula-2" book (4th edition) from my old days at the uni but a printable copy of the XDS reference document would be very useful.

Please, let me know if a printable (pdf) version of the isom2.html document is available for downloading.

Thanks and Regards

I have them with the Linux version of XDS-C, if that helps point you in the right direction, as far as your Windows directories go.

terry@antic:~$ ls /usr/local/xds-c/pdf/

h2d.pdf  isolib.pdf  o2rep.pdf  xdslib.pdf  xm.pdf

Thanks.

Well, I cannot try Linux versions as I only have Windows installed on my personal PCs

(I am an old git trying to remember how to program anything).

I downloaded and extracted / decompressed four files :

xds-x86-251-enduser-win32.exe

tscp-x86-251-enduser-win32.exe

xds-c-251-enduser-win32.exe

tscp-c-251-enduser-win32.exe

As a result I ended up with seven pdf files in the PDF folder :

h2d.pdf

isolib.pdf

o2rep.pdf

xc.pdf

xd.pdf

xdslib.pdf

xm.pdf

.... but no trace of any file like "isom2.pdf".

I conclude that the document "ISO Modula-2 Language Reference" (as accessible on the website in html) is not included in the pdf format in any of the four downloadable XDS files (for Windows).

Some will probably say : tough ....

... well, I will have no choice but agree.

Anyway, thanks for the reply ...

Regards

Robert

... on a different subject ...

qnr ... judging by your personal pic, you appear to be an ex-Atari user ...

hmmm ... old days ...

Actually I did program in Modula-2 on my ST with a kit from TDI

I did my first MSc project with it ... GEM, AES, ... who remembers it now ... late 80s early 90s ...

never mind ... I got a bit sentimental ... my appologies ...

oh.  Ok.  Seemed pretty complete to me, but I generally just check the definition files directly and haven't delved into the docs in a while..

Yes, I've been using Atari computers since 1979, when I bought my 400 and 800.  I also started off with Modula-2 with TDI on my ST :)

Hi everybody !

Pls, just ignore my previous posts in this thread.  :)

At the end I printed the document from the website (html).

It came out fine and it did not take a long time to print

as there were only five or six frames in total.  B)

Regards

Robert
