Don't know if it's any use, but whilst looking for something else, I've just found a copy of "Introducing CP/M" on the BBC Micro Z80 Second Pocessor" (Bruce Smith, 1985). It's ex-Library stock, so not in perfect conditioin, but if you're it might be of some use, then it's yours for the cost of postage (I've got packing stuff lying around!)

It''s more a basic guide to CP/M, with a little insight as to the way the Beeb interacts with it through the Z80, but you never there might be a nugget or two of useful info in there!

I'm off to France in about 20 mins (or as soon as they decide to throw the ropes.) (*) I'm not going to get an ebay-type fistfight going, but if anyone *really* wants it, then I'll whack it in the post.

Regards,

Matt

Sorry guys, missed this.

Matt, thanks very much, I already have a copy :-)

Enjoy MSM - one of my favourite places :D :D even if you are only there briefly doing taxi duties :-) :D :D

The thing sticking out of the sea is truly wonderful. The white thing that carries it's name is a f*****g monstrosity - that won't fit into St Malo (closest proper port to MSM itself).

Anyway - back to the UK on Monday; if anyone wants it, first to PM me can take it for whatever costs are borne by me. (Ie - postage, shoe leather and maybe a pint on top :) - No more than a few quid)

No idea why I said I'd be back on Monday - we're heading to the UK now ("Normandie" this time - a **proper** cruise ferry! Yay!)

nbel - drop me an email (mjforbes at gmail dot com) with your (postal) address, and I'll bung it in the post on Monday after I've done the school run.

Cheers,

Matt

I lent my complete set to ihardcas who is scanning them all. It is however a monumental task so not sure how far he has got. I will ping him and ask.

Hi,

Yes, I have scanned the manuals but not had chance to properly make the PDFs as good as they could be. I'm travelling currently and don't expect to be able to get the originals tarted up proper until the end of the week at least.

Email me at ihardcas@gmail.com and I'll send you what I have in the interim.

Lardo / Iain,

Apologies for the delayed response - It's a shame work gets in the way of a great BBC CIS COBOL experience :lol:

Firstly, many thanks for your responses - Much appreciated.

Iain,

I will email you separately.

Thanks again both!

Darren

Thanks to Iain for the COBOL manuals =D>

I'm now looking to write a COBOL 'airline booking program' for 'Fly-By-Nite' airlines I did as a college project back in 1985. My aim is to write it from scratch with knowledge I've lost over 30 years ago....

I'll keep this forum updated from time to time on progress for those of you interested enough! :lol:

Once again, thank you all for the kindness and support I've received since joining this forum!


Darren

I was reading a book about COBOL a while back and the way it did batch processing of record updates in a database type environment and that gave me considerable inspiration for how the on-line / off-line model of synchronisation woud work for our smartphone companion app at work.
COBOL is not dead!!! (aside from ##% of banking processes etc. still using it).
I would definitely be interested in updates. Just wish I had time to do anything with it myself.
