Found: STOS Tutorial from 1992!

Postby SkylineDave » Tue Feb 14, 2006 9:10 pm

I wrote this tutorial on the ST over 14 years ago and was in contact with Mike Goodman with the intentions of publishing it as a rival to another tutorial that was floating around at the time. Unfortunately it hit a bit of a dead end. Here it is for prosterity!

Hi Dave

That's cool, I really like the tutorial you did. Will add it the archive as a nice easy introduction into STOS programming :D Have you just unearthed this in the hidden depths of your house :?:

a few years ago when i first stumbled across ST emulation (good old PacifiST) i started imaging what ST disks i had left. turned out this one was floating around somewhere. i also found my Speedball 2 saved game editor (posted up in another thread somewhere) although i dont think it'll work with ST disk images. :(

Nice tutorial! Why not make a modernized and HTMLified version of it? I think there are still ppl who might want to learn STOS.

I've got a good home for it if you want to add any screenshots etc. to it :)

Well, it is a 10min job if you do it by hand and a 5er if you use NVU :D

This deserves to be preserved in a readable way...

looks much better - was that done automatically?
seems to have removed a few carriage returns where some snippets of code are but otherwise it looks good.

Yeah, little UNIX util I have called txt2html. Like most of these things, it needs a little post-processing once its done, but it does handle the bulk of the work for you. When I get a spare minute this week, I'll give it a quick once-over.

It would have been nice if we could add hyperlinks...
