Holy cow man, that is amazing work. Really, that is an outstanding, directly publishable piece of work. The layout and format is professional, but what really shines is the quality of actual content.

Im looking forward to seeing this develop more, and seeing the finished product.

How much time has gone into this so far?

Keep up the great work.

I did not get as much done as I wanted to this week, but I did manage to add some more content. I also added an experimental html version to my website. This is an html export from OO Writer, and while it isn't too bad, it needs some work.

You can find both links in the first post.

Richard,

Congratulations on an outstanding book. I'm sure it will soon become the de facto reference manual for Freebasic.

BTW, we have some companies in common. Back in 1969 I was at GE working on a pioneer point-of-sale system called TRADAR which was installed in JC Penney stores in Southern California.

I also spent 16 years at Citibank in software development. The first 8, in the 1970's, were actually at TTI/Citicorp in LA, where we developed the hardware/software for revolutionizing Citibank New York to an online/realtime 24x7 banking system. The next 8 years were at Citibank-Mexico.

Yes, you have been hiding.

Regards,
Edward F. Moneo
