Someone has a combined CP/M Plus User's, Programmer's and System Guide up for auction, and the seller makes a comment that the book is 600 pages, well worth reading and should be worth a lot of money.

At the time of writing, only one minimum bid of 1 SEK has been put, and there is no reservation. I wonder if this is what the seller is expecting.. :P

What language is this manual written in? (I just sold a CP/M 2.2 manual a couple weeks ago for $10.00US).

I would assume English - otherwise the title page would look different, and I'm not sure if Digital Research had become mainstream enough with CP/M to "afford" printing 600 page documents in foreign languages. There might have been 3rd party books in e.g. Swedish, but that is something else.

1 SEK equals $0.13 US, so postage would be many times more than the bid.

Heh. In case anyone forgot to look, the final bid was twice as much as the starting price - i.e. 2 SEK or approx $0.25. So much for "worth lots of money". :wink:
