Sorry to say Erik, I don't quite go for the WWW message groups! :-(

I'll just keep using comp.sys.ibm.classic & post updates there if I continue
to write CP/M-86 software! :-)

CP/M User

I can understand that. Everyone has their own preferences. Hopefully you'll consider cross-posting some of your more interesting stuff here. You should be able to address a wider audiance using both forums instead of just one.

Best regards!

Well I don't know if Turbo Pascal source code is relevant in
here? :-(

I was thinking of maybe occasionally find some old BASICA/
GWBASIC program, re-writing it to Turbo Pascal & maybe
posting it. There's lots of them out there, it just needs to be
done so that CP/M can run it! :-)

I don't see why Turbo-Pascal wouldn't be appropriate. It certainly falls under the heading of "vintage programming" and I'm sure there are others out there who have worked in that environment, even if they might not still be using it.

I know there would be an interest in older BASIC programs. I still need to get back to a project I was tinkering with: I've got a ton of old CP/M Users Group floppies that I need to transfer the programs from. Once I do I can post some of the more manageable ones here and put the larger ones on my site itself.

That sounds interesting! :-)

Some of people in comp.os.cpm maybe interested in that. Occasionally,
I find some sites which has fairly early IBM BASIC stuff/programs. So
there's some interesting stuff out there, it's just a matter of finding
it.

Regards.
