Provisional STL DDFS 2.0 User Manual

Post by SimonSideburns » Sat Aug 26, 2017 4:07 pm

I have painstakingly scanned in the above named document.

I have also manually typed it back in (which was always going to be quicker than trying to use OCR) along with most of the errors.

I'll leave it up to the viewer to correct anything found (if they wish).

I'm happy to attach both the PDF and TXT files.

Thanks. I think I have one of these with a spare model B motherboard. The manual will come in very useful when I try to get the DDFS working. =D>

It would be so interesting to see what changed between this provisional manual and the actual one that was sent out. I touch type and had to make my fingers follow what was written as normally I would have corrected as I went along. I did spot several issues, even with the BASIC listings that had been provided.

Anyone have one?

Only just seen this reply. Mine are a few A4 pages of typed notes that look very much like a draft copy.

I will find them and take a picture soon.

I did discover the full set of manuals a while back, though I think these are the published rather than provisional versions. I have at least DDFS, ADFS and Sideways RAM IIRC. I did offer to scan them but I think it turned out scanned images are already available.
