Here is a completely remastered PDF of the BBC Master Reference Manual parts 1 and 2.
  • The look and layout of the original books have been preserved.
  • A number of error corrections have been applied to the text.
  • All diagrams have been redrawn in vectors.
  • There is extensive hyperlinking - click on any reference to a page, chapter or section, or on any OSBYTE/OSWORD or *command reference to jump directly to the relevant page.
Also included is a disc image containing the listings from part 2. Boot the disc to see a list of programs and which section of the manual they correspond to.

Absolutely amazing, thankyou so much.

Now that I'm looking at these, I wonder how I got by with only the NAUG for the past two years!

+1 - this is great, thank you. An excellent (and searchable) replacement for the enormous PDF (of not-quite-aligned images) that I've been using so far!

Superb work. It's really nice to have these volumes as a proper fully searchable resource.
