As the Amiga was and still is the leader in multitasking functions, I feel that it was born to MULTIT ASK, l still say that you don't need to go to school to learn how to run one. With a PC, in order to have sound you have to buy a sound card. However, with an Amiga, Jerry Hehr of Medina, North Dakota really believes in his Amiga. sound is already installed right out of the box, in stereo even. I like my Amiga so well now that I'll never go to any other brand, no matter how much less they are in price. Yes I know that most other computers have CD ROMs installed in them, for less money than the Amiga, however installing a CD ROM in an Amiga isn't much of a problem either. I used to have a Commodore 128 and when I saw the first Amiga 1000 demonstration, I thought I would never need one. In 1987 I purchased my first Amiga 1000, I thought I really had something. It had 1.5 megs of ram, I also purchased a SuperGen genlock at the same time. In 1990, 1 traded my 1000 in for an Amiga 2000HD with a 40.MB hard drive and 3 megs of memory. At the time, I thought l would never fill up that much hard drive space. A short while later I did. I later sold my 2000 and in January 1994 I purchased my Amiga 4000/040 with 530MB of hard drive space and 16 megs of RAM! Now I really think my computer can work with the best of them, I have mnny friends that have never even heard of an Amiga computer

Version 6 The final update for all GVP SCSI host adapters!
Years of experience, technical know-how, and competence from the world's best Amiga software and hardware engineers are condensed in this penultimate product. It makes It possible for the user to productively and comfortably use SCSI, without sacrificing performance, risk of incompatibility, or waste of resources.
Together with exhaustive documentation, the »Guru- ROM« enhances each Series-1! Host adapter in many decisive and far the serious user essential features: Universal: a SCSI driver without compromise for all Series-ll host adapters and all »Combo« and »G-Force« accelerator cards for the Amiga 4000, 3000, 2000, 1200, and 500. This ROM module, which has been considerably extended in its code and feature set, replaces all previously distributed driver ROMs, Fast: unparalleled transfer rates of up to 3.5 MB s raw (Zorro-ll limit}, 3.1 MB s measured with »SCSI5peed«,
2. 4 MB s measured with »DiskSpeed« - even on a stock 7-MHz
68000-based Amiga! All the while, the CPU typically retains
80% free processing time. Always maximum performance through
the automatic selection of the currently optimal transfer mode
(DMA, buffered DMA, PIO).
Multifaceted: supports all device types defined in the SCSI standard, such as hard disks, CD-ROM drives, streamers, scanners, and magneto-optical devices.
Compatible; complete support for the RDB standard resulting in trouble-free autoboot, automount, and the exchange of devices and media between two computers from Amiga OS 1.3 through 3.1. Flexible: disconnect reselect, synchronous tronsfers, and parity checking can be enabled separately for each device (even for devices without an RDB). Also complete write-protection (useful for kiosk applications and for virus protection) is possible.
Intelligent: maximum compatibility with nearly all hardware and software through special handling of all known firmware bugs of the most popular SCSI devices and DMA hardware bugs in the A3000 and A4000, workarounds for internal errors in the WD SCSI chip, as well as special modifications to account for defective application software.
Upward-compatible: completely compatible both to the SCSI-2 as wed as to the SCSI-1 standard, thereby providing the broadest support for all devices on the market including those still to come.

As 1 stated in last month's editorial, ESCOM held a press conference in Frankfurt, Germany on May 30. Had someone told me a week earlier that! Would he traveling to Europe for a single 21 2 Iiout event, I would have told them the)' were crazy. No, apparently I am.
The world has changed. We think less and less of the distances between places and more and more about the things we accomplish. A trip to Germany from the East Const of the United States should take about 7 hours (give or take a little for tire jet stream). However, the only reasonable fare that 1 could get on short notice, left two days before the conference and required that I travel for 15 hours through several airports and even a train station. In a lot of ways, it reminded me of the way we have followed the Amiga, EMUl(OUT ¦ Amiga Tech A new inologies logo 1 w v A New Outlook Blind
Alleys and Sudden Light Since Commodore's demise, the overriding question on everyone's mind (at least everyone in the Amiga community) has been what is the future of the Amiga? Will it be built again? Can it come back?
In the pursuit of these answers, AC has followed every lead, no matter how small, to see if anyone would provide the inspiration to create a new future for the Amiga.
I have met possible owners on the floor of a casino in Las Vegas and in a private office at a trade show in Chicago. At every turn, 1 have been both leery of what I have been told and hopeful for what I wanted to believe. I gave every person an honest and unprejudiced ear. But, with each, I felt the doubt. Could it be done?
As I watched the carefully planned presentation by Amiga Technologies, I felt tire same small gnawing doubt. Were these people concerned with the Amiga in North America? Did they understand what it would take to draw on the Amiga's strengths and regain its position worldwide?
Since almost all of the attendees represented different portions of the European Amiga community, it was not surprising that almost all of the presentation was directly focused on their needs.
Although, I learned a great deal about the direction and attitude of Amiga Technologies (please see the article on page 12), I had very little solid information about the North American portion of the market. Even in the direct question and answer session, it was evident that Amiga Technologies either had not established a program for North America or they were not able to release the information.
When I returned home, one of the first persons I called was Ed Goff, the Philadelphia attorney who was responsible for Amiga licensing and technology in the US.
It was in that call that I learned what I had traveled over 8,000 miles to discover. The Amiga 4000 Tower would be built in the US and distributed through existing distribution channels.
True, there still is no direct information on marketing plans, nor is there any solid information on A 1200's or even CD32's. But, there is a real plan on providing machines to a market that has not had sufficient stock for longer than Commodore has been out of business.
Maybe this news is still too new.
Maybe we are excited about anyone who would attempt to produce Amigas. But Amiga Technologies has raised the flag.
However, in the greater scheme of things, it doesn't matter how many miles we have traveled to get here, the only thing that matters is what we accomplish now.

On May 30, 1995, ESCOM AG announced its plans for the Commodore name brand and the Amiga platform in Frankfurt, Germany before an audience of more than 50 Amiga journalists and Amiga developers.
ESCOM used the occasion to display their new design for the Amiga 4000 Tower as well as to unveil the new Amiga logo and a new Amiga company, Amiga Technologies.
ESCOM creates Amiga’s Future Amiga Technologies ESCOM announces Amiga 4000 Towers by September-October with a New Look and more!
Some of the more important points from this conference included Amiga Technologies' plans to build 25,000 Amiga 4000 Towers with newly designed cases between now and the end of the year. The first such machines should be available as early as September or October (10,000 of the machines are ear-marked for the North American market).
C* Commodore The Amiga Technologies launch attracted journalists and Amiga developers from the entire Amiga community.
Escom and Amiga Technologies executives presented the direction and goal of the new company as well as facts and figures of their hopes for the Amiga.
Amiga Technologies will also produce over 100,000 A1200s for the European market. No figures were available for the number of A1200S available for North America.
CD32s was the only other Amiga product that Amiga Technologies has decided to currently produce. There were no numbers or distribution schedule given, Amiga Technologies and ESCOM executives believed there was no need to establish separate sales companies for each country in Europe as Commodore had done. Their central sales and distribution organization would be based in the Netherlands for their European needs. There was no information available for marketing or distribution in the US. (At press time, AC has learned that the A4000T will be produced in the US and distributed through the
normal channels in the North American market.
Please see the editorial on page 4 of this issue).
The Commodore portion of Escom’s purchase will be split from the Amiga. The two names will now belong to two distinct and separate companies. ESCOM will maintain the Commodore trademark and use it to launch a serious multimedia PC computer for the European market.
Sales, distribution, and development of the Commodore branded PC machines will be handled by ESCOM and will not be associated with Amiga Technologies.
The 2 1 2 hour presentation included speeches and a question and answer section. The speeches were presented by ESCOM and Amiga Technologies executives as well as an assortment of Amiga developers.
Petro Tyschlschenko, General Manager of Amiga Technologies GmbH, began the proceedings, “...we are determined to resume production and also want to continue hardware and software development of what we believe is a superior technology. That’s why we created Amiga Technologies and we are now hiring the best and most capable people to accomplish this.
“As the director of Amiga Technologies, my first priority now is to resume production of Commodore and Amiga computers and bring them on the market as soon as possible. For us, this means September 1995." He also stated, “The rumored stocks of new Amigas ready to be sold do not exist."
In regards to Amiga Technologies, Mr. Tyschtschenko stated, "the new Amiga Technologies will now become the operating center of an international Company held 100% by ESCOM AG.
Our headquarters in Bensheim will employ around 50 people for the following tasks: development, support to developers, resellers, end users, production management, Marketing, PR and administration. We also took over the former Commodore development center in Norristown, with its research and development facilities.
“Amiga Technologies GmbH expects a turnover of 100 Million DM in
1995. Mainly from the Christmas business with Amiga 1200, 4000.
And CD32. Our monthly expenses are evaiuated at around
600,000 DM. The break-even point should be reached this
year. We are confident that we will have rentabilized
(recouped) our 10 million dollar investment by spring 1996
with Amiga sales and licenses.” Escom AG's Chairman of the
Executive Board, Manfred Schmitt, set the stage for Escom's
goals, “ESCOM now turns from a PC manufacturer and retailer
into a multimedia company." In order to do this, Mr.
Schmitt stated, “Our goal is to give the user a
cost-efficient way to access all these new services the
multimedia world will allow. The Amiga technology brings us
all we need here in an elegant way. We see in the Amiga the
key to Multimedia technologies for the future.” Mr. Schmitt
acknowledged the needs of PC users by stating, “the Amiga
represents a very interesting alternative. It stands out
with an amazing price quality ratio. Also remarkable is the
operating system with a still unmatched multitasking
ability. That means that several applications can run
simultaneously, A new logo, a new product design, and a new
staff for a computer plafform that many have said would
never be built again.

Depending on available memory without slowing down the whole system." He went on to state, “The Amiga operating system needs 8 times less memory than Windows, and it multitasks better than Windows.
Through this smart use of system resources, the Amiga is still a very efficient and inexpensive computer."
"The Amiga technology brings us ail we need here in an elegant way, We see in the Amiga the key to Multimedia technologies for the future."
Manfred Schmitt CEO, ESCOM The Amiga represents a possibility to give people access to interactive television, on-line services and pay TV with set top boxes at decent prices like 400 DM.” “We will now separate Commodore and Amiga operations. Amiga will be the multimedia range with Motorola processors and Commodore for Intel based Personal Computers. We want to use all available and appropriate distribution channels bolh for Commodore and Amiga: specialized retail stores, warehouses, and mail order services. The ESCOM subsidiaries are only one of many possibilities."
The Head of the Product Planning Group for Amiga Technologies GmbH, Dr. Peter Kittel, began his portion of the event by offering a history of the old Commodore and ending with Amiga Technologies' plans for the future. “The big perspective for the future consisls in a port of the Amiga architecture to a RISC platform." In doing this, Dr. Kitte!
Stressed the need to keep the advantages of the Amiga, “The Amiga once started with far superior graphics and sound capabilities, and should by all means regain this advantage. To fulfill both requirements, there are currently two alternatives, the PowerPC and the HP PA RISC. Both have advantages and disadvantages, and they will get thoroughly judged."
Ed Goff, former Vice President and General counsel for Commodore and a Philadelphia attorney, is now a member of Amiga Technologies GmbH and he is now working on issues of licensing Amiga technology and more. In his speech, Mr. Goff stated, “Our strategy wifi be somewhat different than the strategy that you saw from Commodore in the past. It is our intention to have a strategic program for Amigas that will be as open as possible, and which will therefore drive the Amiga technology into as wide a range of products and applications as is possible.” Using strategic alliances with other
corporations from “electronics and telecommunications industries", Mr. Goff hopes to remove the resistance to Amiga based technology from the industry and, “to fund further development of new and advanced products based partly on Amiga and partly on proprietary and public systems provided by the strategic partner.” Mr. Goff was unable to divulge the names of any current possible partners, stating that the agreements, “are at a very early stage."
Mr. Goff suggested that the programs would take the shape of joint ventures, cross licenses, cost and risk- sharing agreements, and capital arrangements. He did go on to state that, “We are currently pursuing opportunities for licensing the Amiga technology or portions of it to enterprises in these industries who will imbed the Amiga in their products.” Wolf Dietrich, of Phase 5 Digital Products, announced his company’s release of the, "..latest generation of the 68k series of processors the superscalar 68060 CPU.” He stated that Phase 5 had developed the first fully operational
implementation of the superscalar 68060 CPU for the AMIGA and that it would be marketed as the Cyberstorm 060 accelerator. He went on to slate that the Cyberstorm 060 was currently available and shipping.
“With this implementation of the powerful 68060 processor the new AMIGA models make a step ahead into the leading group of today’s microcomputer systems. The 68060 processor combines the powerful functionality and instruction set of earlier 68k processors with a new superscalar architecture and adds performance-boosting features like two parallel integer instruction units, larger data and instruction caches of 8k size, a branch cache and pipelined write accesses.

This all means a combination of the industries most advanced technologies for processing performance enhancements.” Mr. Dietrich claimed that software compatibility has been futly maintained and that the, ‘‘more than 80 mips processing power let real-world applications on the AMIGA perform competitively with other high end systems such as Pentium and PowerPC based machines. In combination with the AMIGAs other architectural advantages this makes a powerful system for all semi-professionals and professional applications, perfectly suited for today's requirements lor multimedia computing.
Mr. Dietrich showed charts which listed speed increases over the original Amiga 68040 at a factor of 4 to 5 times.
He went on to say that the benchmarks were based on the use of the original unoptimized 68040 code. If developers update their software to the new 68060, Mr. Dietrich believed that the computers would see an additional acceleration of 1.5 times the original.
Jeff Frank, a former Commodore executive in Engineering, is now Circle 102 on Reader Service card.
Providing technical consulting to Amiga Technologies in the area of Engineering and Manufacturing Amiga, Amiga Technologies GmbH.
He stated that Commodore only built 1000 A4000 Towers originally so that the new system will be almost like a new product launch. He stated that both the A4000 Tower and the At200 will be shipped with AmigaDOS 3.1. in regards to future products, Mr. Frank stated, “We wilt also pursue both tactical and strategic enhancements to the Amiga product line over the months and years to come.
Tactically, our first and perhaps the most obvious enhancement will be a 68060 processor upgrade to the A4000 Tower. We also believe that a performance upgrade to the A1200 by moving from an EC020 to an EC030 processor as well as built-in support for fast RAM capability is a logical step.’1 In addition, he suggested efforts to create both IBM and Apple environments on the Amiga and to port AmigaDOS to non-Amiga platforms.
Jon Bohmer, Vice President and founder of Scala, was also on hand to lend support to the new Amiga announcements. Mr. Bohmer stated that, “Since the Amiga went out of production a year ago, Scala has seen a constant demand for Amigas, from both new and experienced users.” Escom announced that it will bundle a copy of Scala's MM300 into every new Amiga sold.
Don Gilbreath introduced his new company, Visicorp. Mr. Gilbreath was Ihe Director of Product and Market Development for Commodore when CDTV came to market. Visicorp was one of the first companies to sign a licensing agreement with ESCOM to utilize the Amiga technology. Visicorp will use the Amiga and CD32 technology to create set-top boxes for the cable industry.
ESCOM finished with an in-depth question and answer session. While ESCOM did not answer every question, it was apparent they wanted everyone to know they were in the Amiga for the long term.
• AC* The mixture of Brilliance's many painting functions can
produce some downright painterly results. Throughout this
tutorial, 1 will attempt to show just how tire program's
features can produce these results.
24-Bit Painting In Brilliance By Marc Hoffman With all of its power in producing complex two dimensional computer animations, Brilliance is sometimes overlooked for its power that it affords to the artist to convincingly portray realistic still masterpieces fit to hang in a gallery.
One of my mainstays in my traditional paintings using oil and watercolor has been the subject matter of clouds. One can look at these deceptively simple formations and not see the same thing twice. They can range from wispy, high altitude cirrus clouds to the dramatic towering cumulous and cumulonimbus storm clouds. No matter which clouds are present in the skv, they are almost always made more dramatic when they come into contact with a sunset or sunrise. When the sun nears and sinks below the horizon, light is scattered into the longer frequencies of visible light, leaving the more
commonplace blue and white colors of sky and clouds far behind. Being a new user to Brilliance, I took a safe road by painting something 1 am familiar with: a cloud painting. I found out that the program could be used to paint clouds almost exclusively.
To begin the painting, I first started out by establishing a gradient to define the sky area. Since this painting was going to be at dusk, the gradient colors that I chose ranged from a turquoise to a violet, and finally ended in a pinkish hue. See Figure 1.
The next step i took was to block in the area that would eventually be the clouds. I chose a grayish blue hue for this. After turning on transparency at 50%, I used the freehand filled function to draw in the basic shape of the clouds. With the transparency turned on, parts of the graded sky showed though the cloud color. The results are shown in Figure 2.
Admittedly, this cloudv sunset lacks reality at this point. So, the next major step was to lay in the basic colors and values that would define this thing as a sunlit cloud, I used the largest brush in the brush selection panel, I then chose the colors that I wanted for this stage in the painting; in this case, I used an orange and a dark blue-violet. With the transparency on and set at the default of 50% and with the continuous free hand tool activated, I laid in some basic brush strokes that tended to conform to the clouds 1 was painting. I also overlapped the color to create some darker
values in places. See Figure 3.
The next step in this process was to make the clouds appear blended, with a wispy feeling that convinces the viewer that these are clouds. To accomplish this, i turned to two functions found in Brilliance: smear and transparency. As before, 1 set the transparency at the standard 50%. I then went into the draw-mode menu and selected smear. Using a large sized brush, 1 began to blend the areas in the cloud together. The brush stroke direction is verv important here. I used a circular motion of the mouse in order to achieve the wispy appearance beginning to appear in Figure 4.
As the clouds get closer to the horizon in a real sunset, the colors tend to get much "hotter," as they bend closer to the yellow position of the color spectrum. To simulate this phenomenon, I first selected a yellow hue. I then turned the transparency off, and selected the color option from the draw-mode menu. Using a medium sized brush and the unconnected freehand draw option, I began laying in the highlights near the bottom of the cloud bank. 1 also went back to the red orange hues and reinforced some other areas in the clouds, again with the transparency turned off. These steps are shown
in Figure 5.
Again, these areas needed to be blended, and so I turned the transparency on, increased the brush size, selected smear, and blended as before.
1 continued this process throughout the cloud as shown in progress in Figure 6.
To finish out the painting, I used a combination of color, smear, transparency, magnify, and many of the other assorted tools in the Brilliance arsenal. The stencil masking was used for the stripe on the road, as well as tire bezier curve tool to create the stripes and the road itself. The final work, Nebraska P.M., is shown in Figure 7.
Hie line separating fine art and computer art has all but vanished, and in my opinion, these hvo arts can be one in the same. T his is shown rather clearly in Brilliance. With the combination of transparency and smear functions, coupled with a dye sublimation printer, those masterpieces are fit to hang in a gallery.
Experimentation In conclusion, here are a few tips that might prove useful.
Briliiance cries out for experimentation; more so than any other paint program on the Amiga. Having an Undo feature that is limited by a pre-set RAM area is great. If something doesn't come out just right, then it can be undone once, twice, three times, etc. So don't be afraid to make a mistake or two. It can be corrected easily. Also, much Brilliance cries out for experimentation; more so than any other paint program on the Amiga.
Of the time, I will photograph cloud structures that I find interesting, and I'll take more than one photo of the same subject matter. I wilt then use these photos as a reference. Through experience, I have found that trying to copy a photo "verbatim" proves to be a hindrance instead of a help. This is why I use them as reference material only. So don't be afraid of "going out on a limb" and improvising a little. As with anything in computers, the techniques above can be used in just about any way imaginable. It is up to the artist to figure it all out.

Basically Bone An Amiga Based Radiology Teaching Application Michael Tobin, M.D., Ph.D. m Realities of Teaching Radiology Teaching radiology requires collecting interesting films which demonstrate problems both commonly and uncommonly seen. This tried and true method has a number of unpleasant realities associated with it. In addition to the x-ray folders becoming numerous, bulky, and difficult to keep track of, x-rays from one folder have an intriguing tendency of winding up in an entirely different folder. Then there is the more serious problem of the folders disappearing entirely as
friends and colleagues "borrow" them for their own lectures. Thus time is require to "maintain" the file.
There Has to Be a Better Way.
One answer is to store teaching films electronically. The Amiga is ideally suited for digitizing, storing, and then rapidly re- displaying them on any of the high quality 24 bit graphics boards currently available.
But where do these interesting cases come from and how does one get them into the Amiga?
For common problems, radiographs are readily available. These I digitized using a Panasonic WV1410 video camera connected to the video interface unit (VIU) of a GVPIV24 board, a vastly underrated peripheral.
For less common problems, I digitized examples from standard textbooks and articles using an Epson ES-800C flat bed scanner controlled by ADPro (Elastic Reality) and interfaced to my Amiga 4000. I stored these images on 150 MB removable Bernoulli disks which are conveniently accessible both on my A4000 at home and on my A2000 which I brought to the hospital because each has a Bernoulli drive attached.
Images thus collected were useful not only for creating the "Basically Bone" teaching file, but also for generating the Chondrosarc.001 Select the small icon with the right mouse button to see the "big piclure." It you have difficulty figuring out what the radiograph is all about, go back to the main Graphic Recall screen and use the F10 key to read a full explanation.
Photographic slides I need when 1 lecture on bone radiology. Because my A4000 has the Bernoulli drive and the images 1 need but my A3000 has the Polaroid CI-30001 use to make slides, I used SpectraLink (Spectronics Ltd.) To network the two computers via the external floppy disk ports. Thus my A3000 makes slides from the images I store on my A40OO. Pretty neat, 1 think. I found the network to be extremely stable and can recommend it for applications such as this, Time for Graphic Recall Graphic Recall is a talented program. Using ADPro, it can make a picture database from images in one or more
files by creating small IconScreen Graphic Recall generates icons for the images you request. Use the mouse to select an icon and display the original image.
Icons of each. Although one has a choice of a variety of ECS and AGA resolutions for the icons, I chose the ECS hires (640 x 400 pixel, 16 color) option as much of my development was actually on my A2000 at work during lunch! I could then display full 256 grey scale radiographs simply by clicking on the appropriate icon and using the IVVIEW program that comes with the GVP 1V24 board. (I did have to write a two line AmigaDOS script program because I needed the "hires" option for IVVIEW.)
I then used Graphic Recall's option of adding a text file to each image. For each bone disease, I wrote a complete description including the age and sex of persons usually affected, how it presents clinically, how it looks radiographically, what diseases it must be distinguished from, the prognosis, and much more! This gory (or informative depends on your point of view!) Can be hidden from the student using the F10 key as a toggle switch.
So now you can begin to see one way the application can be used. The teacher can select any databased image, display it on the IV24, ask the student what he she thinks the radiograph is all about, and then let the student read about the bone disease using the F10 hot key. The descriptive material can even be printed out for future reference.
There Is Even More!
"Basically Bone" is even more powerful because it uses Graphic Recall's search function which allows each image to be referenced by up to 255 characters worth of "key words."
A maximum of three key words can be used for a search, one of which can be exclusionary. This allows search options such as "NOT adult." Because one has to achieve some degree of consistency in key word choice.
Graphic Recall provides the option of listing key words in a readily accessible "dictionary." By using this dictionary, other users can know which words to use for a search. This is a very powerful feature indeed.
As an illustration, suppose I wanted to see examples of childhood diseases affecting the spine. I might search under "pediatric" and "spine" perhaps after consulting the dictionary to see if these had been used as key words. If the search were successful, I would then have a list of all the examples I had archived under these desciptors and have the option of looking at any image in the list. I might then try to match the radiograph in my hand with the image on the monitor to check for similarities.
Thus "Basically Bone" could even have a role in clinical diagnosis!
So Do They Like It?
Although the "Basically Bone" is still under construction and in some sense is never finished because there are always new cases and new things to say about them radiology July 1995 21 ft M residents are very enthusiastic. Their And the Future? Of course. I'll make a version for goal is to learn and ultimately pass At some point I will put all the AGA screens. I might also their written and oral board examina- images on a CD ROM, making the database my chest radiographs tions and are genuinely grateful for whole system more transportable and 1 certainly have enough of them!
Any help they receive. Probably more reliable in the long run. Writing up the cases is really a lot of work and, as I have hinted, is basically being done in stolen moments. I am also working on other Amiga applications as well.
I have kept in contact with the developer of Graphic Recall who has included many custom iza tions I have suggested.
He has promised additional enhancements to the program including linking sound files to images and improved AREXX handling. I believe that he and all Amiga developers deserve our support and encouragement by continuing to purchase their products and showing applications based on them both inside and outside the Amiga community. In this regard, i presented viewacreen.icuM.cKiJiijiiu "Raci 'allv Rnno" af a nninr Use the FID hotkey to read about the image you have selected. Being able to annotate images and then search for them using key words is a powerful feature of Graphic Recall medical

Discover a safe way to transmit your electronic messages, use the standard Amiga file requester even when your program does not offer it, and discover a way to retain your clipboard information even after you have copied something else.
With increasing frequency, both business and personal communication is being handled via e-mail. With the increased flexibility and convenience comes increased concern for security.
This month we will take a look at a Pretty Good solution to this problem.
Pretty Good Privacy Suppose you received an e-mail message from your boss telling you that you had been fired. The message says not to bother coming to work information can be altered or falsified.
When it comes to electronic messages, just because it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, does not necessarily make it a duck.
Turn the problem around. Suppose you are the boss and want to send one of your employees a message that you don't want anyone else to be able to read. Or suppose you want to send a plain text message, the authenticity of which every reader would be able to verify with certainty. Obviously some concept that is deceptively simple.
Everyone who uses the system has two keys, a private key and a public key.
The public key is published as widely as possible, so as many people as possible either have it, or have easy access to it. Each key can unlock the code produced by the other, but the private key cannot be re-created bv the public one.
When you use your private key to encode a piece of text, that text can only be read by yourself with the same When it comes to electronic messages, just because it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, does not necessarily make it a duck, tomorrow. All of your possessions would be sent to you. How would you know if the message was genuine?
Most e-mail has a header at the top of the message detailing who sent it, when, and even the route the message took to get to you. But this header sort of encryption couid solve the first two problems, but how about the last?
The solution to all of these problems, and more, is Pretty Good Privacy, from Phil's Pretty Good Software. PGP is a public- key encryption program. Public-key is a security private key you used to encode it, or by someone who uses your public key.
The fact that it was YOUR public key that could decode the text, proves it was you who encoded it originally.
Conversely, someone could use your public key to encode a message that could only be decoded by your secret private key.
The verifiable plain-text message is handled by another feature of PGP.
This allows you to add a block of ASCII characters to the end of a message. This block of characters is generated based not only on your private key, but message content and other factors. This means that if someone made a change to your message, the signature block at the end would no longer match, and the message would not be verified. PGP can perform many other functions, and data files can be protected as well as text files. In fact, the help file lists 35 functions, and the entire documentation directory is more than 300K.
PGP is a multi-platform package with versions for IBM, Unix, and other systems as well as the Amiga, and was written by a group headed by Phillip Zimmerman. The program is entirely command-line oriented, but commands are relatively simple and are straight-fonvardly explained.
The first step in using the program is to generate the public and private keys that you will use. Three levels of security are offered when you generate a set of keys, with a trade off between speed and security. The program tells you to type a string of random characters, and uses these along with timing between keystrokes to generate a large random number. This number then is used by the program to create your unique keys.
% |Z p 0 ffHr t i'hl *¦ j A Ijffl HU This is a program that the US government does not like. Quite simply, they would prefer that everyone use the encryption method that the National Security Agency developed, called Clipper. The problem is, the government would keep a copy of your private Clipper key on file, ready to decode your communications if they decided they needed to.
One of the restrictions placed on PGP is that you cannot use it or export it outside the US or Canada, the reason being that the government classifies the data encryption algorithms the same as munitions when it comes to export licenses. All of this and much more is explained in the doc files included with the program archive.
Pretty Good Privacy is at version 2.6.2, and is freeware. There are two versions of the program. One is suitable for any Amiga processor, and the other is optimized for 68020 and higher processors. At 265,856 bytes, a 2400 bps modem will let you start feeling more secure in about 22 minutes.
FileRequester Are you often annoyed by programs that use their own file requesters instead of the one provided by Workbench 2.0 and above? Even top-of-the-line software such as Dpaint fails to make use of the Amiga requester. FileRequester 1.0 (Figure 1) from Carsten Orthbandt remedies this annoyance.

Moringelio remembers Clipboard Information in case you want to use a clip you have already erased.
When the program is active, clicking in just about any non-standard requester and pressing a hot-key combination will bring up the standard asl requester. Select the desired file in the usual way, and when you click on the OK gadget or press return, the path information is transferred to the program's requester for action.
While this requires a few extra steps, having the added functionality of the asl requester can more than make up for the extra work. FileRequester is freeware, and the archive is only 8832 bytes, and can be yours in less than a minute.
ClipBoard Enhancer Any time you use the cut-and- paste function of your favorite word processor, paint program, or any of a number of different programs, you have made use of the Clipboard. This is a device that temporarily holds the data until it can be pasted back into a new location or different application.
The problem is, once it is pasted the data is deleted, so if you need a second copy you have to cut-and- paste again. Some programs use their own buffers to hold data for subsequent operations, but this data is not available to other programs.
The ClipBoard Enhancer (CBE) from Anthony J. Moringelio (Figure2) adds the same sort of history found in the Shell to the Clipboard. Starting CBE opens a Listview gadget. Every time any program uses the Clipboard, the information is maintained by CBE, and displayed here. Actually, onlv the first few words of a text clip will be displayed, but the entire clip can be viewed by clicking on the View button. A notation describing the type of data is also displayed.
Text is not the only type of data that can be held in the Clipboard, and if you clip a portion of a sound or picture file, the data type and other information will be shown in the CBE gadget. Pasting a clip is as simple as scrolling through the list, selecting the clip you want, then using your application's paste function in the usual manner.
CBE is shareware, with a donation of $ 5 to $ 15 requested. Registering the program will get you a key file that unlocks additional functions not available in the unregistered version.
This key file concept is being used by more and more shareware products, and allows a user to download later versions of the program without having to re-register each time.
CBE works on any Amiga with KickStart 2.04 or above. The 43,828 byte file contains AmigaGuide documentation, and a variety of program icons. Less than four minutes are required to download at 2400bps.
Where To Look Because of a number of legal issues, PGP has evolved into two functionally equivalent versions, one for use within North America, and one for use everywhere else. The only place 1 found the NA version was on Genie, and the only way to download VisionSoft

0 Copyright 1995. LocrArtMftil |Fi. All Rights Reserved DirWork 2 by George Evans Complex commands reduced to a single mouse click, As intuitive as Amiga DOS 3.0 is, there is still a need for a rapid fire, point and click interface to handle most disk functions and file handling. That need has been met elegantly by a thorough upgrade of an old favorite, DirWork, now DirWork 2.
Many menu and directory utility programs have been written to handle disk and file-handling functions for novice and average users. A few of these programs offer advanced functions for power users but, these usually carry a steep price in terms of memory. One shareware product which was highly successful offering both basic and advanced functions, while making low memory demands, was the program, DirWork, by Chris Hames. Today, with the commercial release of DirWork 2, Chris Hames presents a tool that should delight everyone who owns an Amiga.
Ads claim DW2 is "the world's 1st totally configurable directory utility." Well, a quick look at this program proves they aren't kidding. It's amazing what this program can do.
Not only configurable, but extremely powerful and, DW2 does it all with remarkably low memory consumption.
What does it do? Well, it works with Amiga DOS 1.3 to
3. 0, providing solid and fast file manipulation for novice users
and near infinite customization and scripting capability for
power users. Taken for granted with any good disk file
handling utility is the ability to copy, move, rename, delete,
or de-protect any file or directory, invoke Amiga DOS commands
and perform disk operations such as formatting. But, how many
other directory utilities can be configured to recognize IBM
format disks? DW2 sports unlimited, fully configurable menus
and programmable hotkeys. Just a mouse dick can play
SoundTracker and MOD files, display system information,
pictures and icons.
DW2 is fully 3.0+ compatible and supports Arexx. Simply put, this program makes operation of your Amiga a whole lot easier.
Installation and Fine Tuning Certainly nothing could be easier than installing this program. Within minutes of opening the box DW2 was installed and running on my hard drive but, there is no reason it couldn't be used on a floppy-based system. The included Configuration Editor creates a text-based config file which you can tailor to your exact preferences and needs. You can also use one of the config files thoughtfully included with DW2 and 'tweak' it as your needs grow. By the way, Super.cfg is an excellent first choice for all round ease and power. Almost any modification car be done with
the Configuration Editor, and it may be deleted from your working disk if space is needed. For the most exacting fine tuning of DW2, the text-based config file may be directly edited with your favorite text editor but, as the manual warns; direct editing of the config file is only meant for advanced users. Most users can get exactly the results they want by examining one or more of the included config files and using the Configuration Editor to modify their favorite config file to produce the same results. Multiple config files may be stored in memory and called up on the fly or even
simultaneously for multiple DW2s with different configurations.
A MA ZING COMPUTING Like other directory utilities Directory Works 2 uses a 'source' and 'destination' filelist format. Unlike other utilities DW2 can display any file information you choose to see in any order you choose to see it. Things such as date time, size, comment, number of files selected, total files, etc. Buttons can appear anywhere on screen and be of any size you like with any font. Though, of course, a 40 point font still won't fit an eight pixel button.
File and directory operations are only a click to highlight and a click to select whatever action you wish to perform on them. DW2 can operate on multiple files and directories, can recognize file patterns and can even remove an entire directory all at once, with or without bothering to ask you if you really want to remove a non-empty directory.
This utility does everything with incredible ease and intuitive grace. To check or change protection bits, click outside the filelist, alongside the file you wish to inspect.
This brings up a window with all selectable bits on individual gadgets as well as a line to read enter comments.
Have you forgotten which file contains that perfect phrase you sat up all night to get just right? DW2 can find it for you and report all instances of your phrase in any number of files then report the line number and show the context of each occurrence.

Figure 1: The author's favorite DirWork 2 configuration.
Editing text or script files is a breeze. Once you select a file you can look at it with the built-in text viewer in ASCII, ANSI or HEX. This viewer allows searches, and prints the entire file or just the page shown. If you want to edit your file, click the edit button and the text viewer exits while loading the file into your favorite text editor. It is worth noting that the text viewer will show powerpacked files if you have the latest powerpacker.library but, it does not warn you that the file is powerpacked. So, unless your editor can read powerpacked files you may be in for a surprise.
One solution is to print the file from within the text viewer since it will automatically de-crunch files. Using CMD you can redirect output to a file in memory and edit that. Of course, you have PowerPacker or the file wouldn't be packed in the first place but, this solution is quicker than calling another program.
Speaking of quick, DW2 can be programmed to perform the entire sequence above with only two clicks of the mouse. Perhaps you have used utilities that could automatically recognize certain types of files and perform operations on them. DW2 excels yet again in this regard. In addition to operating on text files, it plays 8SVX sound samples at their sampled rate, as well as ProTracker and SoundTracker MODs. You can highlight several MODs and play them sequentially. DW2's configurable Instant Action Types can show both selected and unselected icons together and, display IFF and HAM pictures, even
if power-packed, or very large files, the built-in picture viewer provides very smooth scrolling to view those large images as well as cursor, arrow and keypad movement. DW2 can display and print ail data-type pictures, yes, even while it's playing your favorite MODs.
Instant Action Types can be taught to recognize almost any type of file and to perform whatever action you desire.
With a three button mouse or key-press combinations the number of options are unlimited. LhA, for example, might view, freshen, extract, compress, etc., at the click of a single mouse button. By the way, working with LhA exposed a potential pitfall. Although it is not a problem with the program, the manual should warn you to put quotation marks around the expression "%p%f" in all config files if you have filenames with spaces in them. DW2 seems to support any archiving program although none are included with this package. In practice, 1 only found one program of any kind, a CLI-based text
analyzer, that 1 couldn't get to work with DW2 in just a few minutes.
Hidden Menus If you don't need to see a filelist, DW2 can easily create a multi-column menu to wait invisibly on your workbench and run virtually all operations. Anything DW2 can do from an Instant Action Type or programmable button can be done from its user configurable menus as well. Pull down menus seem to be a far better solution than programmable hotkeys. Of course you know your personal hotkeys should be unique key combinations but, programmers may want to use exactly the same key combination. II DW2 is "sleeping," waiting in the background with no visible window or screen but still
active, those hotkeys may interfere with, or be the same as, some obscure program function call. Better by far, and now easy, to let the DW2 menus wait on the Workbench screen.
But wait, you say, why would you want a program to be constantly running in the background? So you can instantly call it forth to work its magic, So that while it 'sleeps' you can use its mouse accelerator, 'sun mouse' feature, screen blanker and let it stop your drives from clicking. Also, 'awake' or 'asleep DW2 will automatically check each disk inserted for non-standard bootblocks and empower its System Monitor to record any attempted system access by all programs. This can be very useful to learn which files programs are searching for, if they will not run, or modifying, if they do.
I don't know of any directory utility that does so much with so little memory. Configured to do everything I could dream of and a little bit more, Directory Works 2 weighs in at just over 100K active memory but, when iconified or 'asleep,' ready to be awakened by user-selected keystrokes, it takes even less memory.
This utility contains so many really useful built-in utilities it's like a Swiss army knife there's always something in there to get the job done. Furthermore, combining these utilities, takes much less memory than having to load each one and it's light-years faster than having to search for each one just when you happen to need it.

J DirWork U2.0 ® 1990- 1994 Chris Hanes. J 2 Figure 2: The author’s iconified and restored DirWork 2 configuration. Note the border of the window is expanded but the filellsts are not. As explained in the text, this can be overcome by putting DW2 to ‘sleep,’ rather than iconifying.
"...so much with so little..." A good example of the built-in abilities of DVV2 is a very complete Disk Operations window. Here, even novice users can copy, direct or from memory buffer, to up to four disks at once. All those confusing disk commands with the impossible to remember CL1 syntax; OFS, FFS, Cache, International, verify, format quick, etc., are reduced to simple buttons. "DiskOp" claims to work with the new High Deasity drives but, while 1 was unable to verify this, the speed of these disk utilities is impressive. Comparing a 'format without verify' between DW2 and SuperDuper, a
dedicated disk copier formatter, reveals DW2 is only slightly slower at 43 seconds verses 35 seconds. That should be fast enough for even power users. If not, when was the last time your blazing disk formatter played your favorite MODs and displayed an IFF slide show while it was formatting all those disks? Humm?
On the other hand, I did run into some problems transferring files on floppies between an A1200 and an A4000, when the disks had been formatted with DW2.
Checking the disks before and after formatting, with QuarterBack Tools, revealed a "Bitmap Contents Incorrect" error was generated on each disk as it was formatted. DW2, itself, did not recognize this error when it performed a disk check.
Although the spiral bound users' manual, is in need of an index, it is very well written and well organized, once you understand that the first half of the manual is devoted to explaining configuration via the Configuration Editor and the last half is trying to explain direct entry via editing the text-based config file. Despite all the warnings, sooner or later most users are going to try editing the config file directly. When you are ready for that step, study the included config files carefully. They aren't difficult to understand and it seems every function has been used in one or more of
There was only one function which I could never get to work on my A1200, the 'Hunt' function. This is supposed to search for a file matching a user-specified pattern but, mine just sat there and stared back at me. Also, I could never get the filelists to fully expand after iconifying DW2. They always looked like "Figure 2." On startup and 'awakening the filelists behaved normally so, if you experience similar problems, just put DW2 to 'sleep' instead of iconifying it.
Yes, you will probably have to use a hotkey combination to awaken it but surely, you can think up one safe combination, According to Quasar Distribution, a free patch should be available as you read this to fix minor bugs reported by users.
Other than the above, DW2 only has one limitation which I can find; it will only allow you to open two filelists.
The solution, however, should be simple; open as many DW2s as you need, even if they have different configuration files.
In Conclusion In summary, I can think of no other utility which I would rather have than this one. Nor can I think of any one more thoroughly satisfying utility which does as much as this one does in such a small package. Whether you are a novice or an experienced programmer, if you can only afford one utility, heck, even if you can afford 20, this is the one to have, hands down a winner.

• AC* Libraries Beginning Assembly Part 3 - Your Library Card by
Bill Nee Check into the Amiga's libraries to make your
programming easier or consider creating your own.
To make life easier for programmers, the Amiga already contains numerous special routines for you to use. These functions are placed in different "libraries" depending on their general type. Some of these routines will open and close other libraries, draw graphics, menus and requesters, move sprites, etc. And there are even ways to create your own libraries for your specialized functions. Libraries are usually located in memory or on your boot disk. The major libraries we'll use are: EXEC - handles memory, tasks, devices, resources, input output INTUITION - screens, windows, menus, gadgets,
requesters, mouse GRAPHICS - set a point, print text, sprites DOS - open, close, read, write files TRANSLATOR - convert word strings to phonetic strings MATH - there are several math libraries for single or double precision and regular or special functions (trigonometric, logs powers, roots, etc.) When you first turn on the Amiga the locations of these libraries may be different from previous times so you can't directly use one of the routines, but must open the library first.
There is one constant, however, the address of the EXEC library is always at location S4; since addresses in the Amiga are usually long they are given as HEX values omitting the .
Within the EXEC library are routines to open and close any other library. The reference to any library routine is always a negative number used as an offset from a library location. This offset is not the start of the routine but, rather, the location of the address for that routine (if the format JSR ). For example, the address for the routine to open a library is located at -552, or 552 bytes away from the EXEC library beginning; the address of the routine to close a library is at -414. You don't need to worry about the actual address, but you do need to know where they're located -
those negative offsets. A little later I'll show you how the assembler will help you with this.
In almost every library routine certain registers must contain specific information and the result, if any, is returned in specific registers, usually DO. To open a library the location of the EXEC library address (S4) is put in A6, the latest library version desired or, more usually, a 0 for "don't care what version" in DO and the library name address in AO; the desired library location will be returned in DO. The library name is a name location in your program that contains the actual library name. You'll see how the assembler does this shortly. Most of these library names except for the
math ones are the name of the library itself followed by ".library". OPEN CLOSE A Library Let's see how to open the INTUITION library. The library name will be at a location called INT and we'll store the returned address in a location called INTBASE. A short routine to open this library could be - MOVEA.L $ 4, A6 contains the EXEC library address LEA INT,AO location of INTUITION Library nair.e KOVEQ Q,D0 use any version 8 JSR
- 552,(A6) jump to the routine -552 bytes from the address in
AS and return when finished MOVE,L DO,INTBASE save the
address, set flags BEQ ERROR branch if not located Most
routines follow this format. 1 could have used TST on DO to see
if there was an address, but MOVEing will set the ZERO flag
anyway, so check afterwards. To close the library, which you
must do when you're finished with it or at the end of the
program, the library address must be in Al. Use code like -
MQVEA.L $ 4, AS ;contains the EXEC library address MOVEA.L
INTBASE,A1 ;address of intuition library JSR -414(AS) jjuap to
the close library routine and return The routines for opening
and closing libraries are the same for all libraries so they
are perfect candidates for MACROS - routines that are always
performed in the same manner with only the names or values
changed. More on macros in a later article.
Organizing A Program Now it's time to look at the PHXASS assembler and see how we can begin to write a program. The first line needs to let the assembler know that this section is code to be assembled so use (tab) SECTION (tab) TEXT,CODE. Next would,probably be any files you want included that are referred to within the program. These files might contain the offset values for certain libraries, macro routines, etc. Add these files using (tab) INCLUDE (tab) FILENAME; you may have several include files.
This would be followed by your "equates". These are values to be used in place of words you use in your code. In ADVANCED AMIGA ANALYZER An Inexpensive Diagnostic Anaixzer That Works On Ail Amigas FeatweA . Locates most common 1C circuit failures on all Amiga computers. J

The program we just listed above you might use - ,-EXIC 0FF32ZS OFKttLIBRASY - -552 CliOSELIBRASY « -414 Now you could use code like - JSR OPENLIBRARY(A6).
While you may assign any name to a value, there are certain names usually used by all programmers to make their source code work for anyone. I’ll always try to use these standard equates. In the same manner you can equate names to the various registers with EQUR. Using ACROSS EQUR D6 and DOWN EQUR D5 would always store whatever value you put in those labels into either of the two registers; you can also use those registers anywhere else. You may have variables in your program that you want to change and test for new values. You could use LEN = 32, assemble and try the program, then change LEN
= 64, reassemble and retry the program. Anywhere there is LEN in vour code will now be replaced with 64.
This section is usually followed by any macros or routines specific to the program. Then there is the program itself. After the program all the data is listed. This usually starts with the code EVEN to he sure it begins on a long word address. Space for anv variables to be computed is reserved using NAME
DC. B .W .L depending if it's a byte, word, or long word,
followed by the initial value, usually 0. For example, the
address of the DOS library, when opened, gets stored in
DOSBASE so reserve space for this long word value using
DOSBASE DC.L 0. Separate any non long word values with EVEN
to keep them aligned.
Another use for DC.B is to store string phrases or numbers. These must be in quotes and are usually followed by a 0 to indicate the end of the string. This is how those library names get entered. You might store the INTUITION library name using 1NT DC.B 'INTUITION.LIBRARY',0. Now the location INT can be used as the address of the library name to go in A0. Multiple values of the same length can go on the same line such as - COLOSTXB1S EC.V S0C64,60E43,$ 0E22,SOFOl Word equivalents maybe used in any storage location or code as long as they have been equated to a numerical value in your listing or
in an include file. Storage space for lots of data can be reserved using DCB or BLK.B .W .L HOW_MANY,FlLL_VALUE or DS.B .W .L HOW_MANY; the latter will automatically fill the block with zeroes. If you haven't done so already, now is a good time to read the PHXASS.DOC manual.
Let's write a program that will open the DOS library and print it's location, in HEX, to the screen. A new command first
- ROL R. This command will rotate a register left or right one
bit; the bit that goes off the end rotates back to the other
end, so it takes 32 rotations to restore a register to its
original contents. This command will help us isolate each
four-bit number and convert it to a CHRS. We'll use the DOS
function WRITE which writes the contents of a buffer to the
WRITE needs the location of an output file in Dl, the input buffer or string location in D2 and the length of the text in D3.
The DOS routine OUTPUT will return the output file address in DO which is usually stored in memory location CONHANDLE. When using WRITE the text or buffer contents do not need to be null (0) terminated since the number of bytes to print is in D3; it's still a good idea to terminate strings with 0, however, since most other routines require it.
Using Listing T With this information, let's follow Listing 1. There are four offset equates for the routines the program uses. After saving the stack pointer the DOS library is opened and it's address used in OUTPUT to get CONHANDLE. The DOS library address is put in DO and our input BUFFER address in A0.
Rotating DO four bits to the left moves the left-most number to the right end. Since we'll be storing this number as a character in the buffer first move this value into D2 so we can modify it and move this value into the register with $ F to be sure that D2 contains only a number from 0 to $ F. Since the CHRS for letters starts at S30, add this to D2. If the current character value is for a 0 to 9, branch to OK; if not, add 7 to convert it to the CHRS value for A to F. Putting the character we're using in quotes instead of its actual character value is much easier than trying to remember all
those character values. Move this value to the buffer location and increase the buffer address by 1; the "+" after (A0) means to increase that register by the size of the MOVE command. Add 1 to D3 and see if we've filled our buffer with 8 characters yet; if not, repeat the process.
When the buffer is full (eight characters), put the CONHANDLER address if Dl and the BUFFER address in D2; increase the length in D3 by 1 since we'll also print a line feed (CHRS10) after the eight numbers. Then call the WRITE function, close the DOS library and restore the stack. Type and save Listing 1 as DEMODOS.ASM; assemble it with PHXASS DEMODOS.ASM and link it using PHXLNK DEMODOS.O. Run the program DEMODOS and you'll see the location of your DOS library. This routine could be modified to print the HEX contents of any register. Could you print the decimal value instead? Or, how about
first printing a message giving the library name followed by its location. Try this for several libraries.
For a more in-depth discussion of these first articles refer to AC's TECH magazine V2.1 (pages 45-52). Next time we'll do some math and write a program for a financial calculator. Until then, happy programming.

• AC* I F E ;LE 1 B A T iC T Feedback Letters to the Editor Dear
AC, We have a CDTV with an Amitrix Hard Drive controller card
and Quantum HD, a DKB MegAChip and a keyboard extension kit. We
are extremely pleased with it. However, I would like to upgrade
it to either 2.1 or
3. 1 and get it to call up Pal display. I understand that a stock
CDTV is 1.3 and will not do that, but I wonder if I can
replace the motherboard with an A500 rev 6.02 motherboard? If
so, can someone give a basic instruction guide as to how to do
it? Can the CD-ROM drive be replaced with a Double or Triple
speed CD ROM drive?
We are sorry to see another magazine stop publishing for the computer world, e.g. Amiga World, but we're all glad to see that Amazing Computing Magazine "still keeps on ticking".
Thank you very much, Ron Oberheu Manager Penguin Music Store 3 Toledo, OH 43623 I am sorry that as of press time, we Imve not been able to get a firm answer to your question. The current number of organizations that we can turn to for these answers is, as you know, extremely low. While 1 do not believe ivhat you want to do is possible, I will leave this open to our readers for a response.
In addition, I have forwarded your letter to SCALA. I believe that 5CALA has done an enormous amount of work with the CDTV ami the CD32. My belief is that if anyone could do what you want, SCALA has probably already tried it. Ed. Dear AC, This is a note to inform you that I, a subscriber to Amazing Computing and Scientific Amigan am committed, as you are, to support the amazing computer, the Amiga.
Recently, 1 upgraded my Amiga 1200 with 4MB of chip RAM using a DKB 1202 board. Since this was a substantial investment, 1 am showing that the Amiga will stay the main computer of choice for my family. I upgraded to be able to run productivity programs such as FinalWriter, which require more memory than 1 had previously. I also bought Checks & Balances, Maxon Magic, and On the Ball to round out my wants for the moment.
I have not had any problems with the 1200 and 1 look forward to using this machine for years to come. I also want to thank you for producing a valuable magazine.
Mark A. Dekeyser Waterloo, Ontario Canada Dear AC: 1 second the motion for basing the Amiga OS on top of the Toas kernal.
The establishment of multi-processing ("multi-threading" in some circles) is tire direction all work stations will go.
And with the development of so many really good processors, the virtual processor (VP) is the best and correct programming model to allow the personal choice of processing power without having to give up what one already has. What a great way to abolish "upgrades" and establish "add to's."
Even before the A3000 was introduced I corresponded with the head engineer who happened to be in charge of the designing of said machine (unfortunately I do not recall his name). 1 proposed a multiprocessing architecture to him that would have worked even under Amiga DOS 1.2. I was not in the least surprised that Toas was derived from familiarity with the Amiga OS.
Though Toas is not all that important in the Amiga gaining the ability to multi-process, it is already mature in the ability of unlocking a work station from a single processor and a single make and model of processor.
But let us not forget that a work station is not just an operating system (OS). It is an architecture of many parts that can help or hinder the desired outcome of the human user.
The OS should as much as possible be transparent to the user. A plug-in-card slot should be available to any device, on a bus that is uniform from end-to- end (i.e. no processor specific slot). All a bus should be is a path for data transfer, not memory addressing. A drive (disk, hard, or CD Rom) should be an input-output device and not a driver and a ROM and a couple of megs; just a drive. Software development should not be "C" or go home.
There are "Basic" minds, "Assembler" minds, "Pascal" minds, "Modular II" minds, and "Fortran" minds. Software developers do not need "Foundation Classes", just a language they understand; the OS will be the foundation (virtually through Toas' VP code).
To whomever may end up with the Amiga rights, there are over 10 million cases, power supplies, keyboards, mice, hard drives, disk drives, CD ROMs, and monitors that have been previously purchased. I for one do not need any of the aforementioned for what I have of those are working fine (thank you). It may not be all too novel an idea but, how about designing mother boards that fit into the existing cases.
Do you need help in figuring this out? From my perspective I will not waste what I have. From your perspective, it's a matter of cash flow and time: System A 6000 060 Motherboard Trice S3500 S450 Time to Purchase 3 + years 3 months Your Balance Sheet in the red in the black Thank you, Gerald R. Kuzawa Sacramento, California Dear AC, Enclosed please find two Polaroid snapshots of the license plates that I have on my mini-van.
In my opinion the Amiga is the LUXURY CAR OF COMPUTERS.
BAR NON! The main reason I feel this way is because of the great way the Amiga operates compared to other machines.
As tlie Amiga was and still is the leader in multitasking functions, I feel that it was born to MULTITASK, I still say that you don't need to go to school to learn how to run one. With a PC, in order to have sound you have to buy a sound card. However, with an Amiga, sound is already installed right out of the box, in stereo even.
I like my Amiga so well now that I'll never go to any other brand, no matter how much less they are in price. Yes I know that most other computers have CD ROMs installed in them, for less money than the Amiga, however installing a CD ROM in an Amiga isn't much of a problem either.
I used to have a Commodore 128 and when I saw the first Amiga 1000 demonstration, I thought 1 would never need one. In 19871 purchased my first Amiga 1000,1 thought I really had something. It had 1.5 megs of ram, I also purchased a SuperGen genlock at the same time. In 1990,1 traded my 1000 in for an Amiga 2000HD with a TOMB hard drive and 3 megs of memory. At the time, I thought 1 would never fill up that much hard drive space. A short while later I did.
I later sold my 2000 and in January 19941 purchased my Amiga 4000 040 with 530MB of hard drive space and 16 megs of RAM!
Now I really think my computer can work with the best of them, I have many friends that have never even heard of an Amiga computer, however when they see mine they seem very impressed.

Devilish Point Of View Util Divil s control screen keeps track of your position (upper Left), your discovered wealth (upper middle), and even the number of keys you have discovered. The Litil Divil is easy to control as the animated character moves from one challenge to another.
It's very seldom when a truly entertaining and original game comes down the pike-especially for the CD-32. Litil Divil from Gremlin was originally released for the CD-i system, but it is now available for the CD-32's library as well. And it's about time, too.
The premise is decidedly obnoxious. Mutt, the Litil Divil, has had the unfortunate luck of drawing the small straw in the Grand Council's lottery.
The Prize? He who draws the straw' must venture into the Labyrinth of Chaos to retrieve the Mystic Pizza of Plenty. So, Mutt must venture through the five huge, winding, trap filled levels of the Labyrinth so his divil "friends" can have good take out.
The graphics (and humor) of the game are more than a little reminiscent of Core's Heimdall. The game predominantly takes place from two different views. One is an almost first person view where you must Lead Mutt through the corridors to find the various puzzle rooms. In this view, which takes up much of the game, you guide Mutt around hall traps and through the many passage ways. The second perspective is an isometric, overhead viewpoint used in the various puzzle rooms of the Labyrinth.
Graphics are excellent and very cartoon tike.
The colors are vivid, the animation good and just watching some of the game's many puzzle sequences can be entertaining. Music in the game is also very good, with a distinct Irish flavor (not surprising since Litil Divil is a product of Gremlin's Ireland division). Sound effects are pretty sparse, however, and the extent of any voice in the game is mostly grunts and groans from Mutt.
The game's puzzles are wildly varied in both content and difficulty. The diversity of puzzles is what will give Litil Divil a front row seat on your CD-32 play list for some time to come and the distinct humor (sometimes to the absurd) and characters will keep you entertained the whole way through. The sequences range from fighting and hopping to memorization and logic and the various scenarios for these challenges are always interesting.
There are definitely some problems with Litil Divil, though. The isometric viewpoint always makes for unusual control, but the game is sometimes hampered with sluggish, unresponsive control. Litil Divil has no opening sequence cartoon, which was very disappointing since this is supposed to be a CD-only game. The game only saves your dungeon level-thus forcing you to start over at the beginning of whatever level you were on when you saved. Also, in order to load a saved game, you must always fight the first level bridge guard (the game only allows access to saved games from the inventory
screen, which can only be accessed in the Labyrinth). On top of that, in order to actually save your game in the first place, you have to find the save room. Litil Divil does not automatically save the game upon level progression (save rooms also heal you, by the way, which is the purpose of level one's save room). On the upside, saved games only take up one byte of the CD-32's precious save RAM.
The outstanding graphics, appealing characters and amusing diversity alt make Litil Divil a little treasure of a game on the CD-32. Litil Divil is an excellent mixture of role plaving games, arcade action and mind bending puzzles that is sure to appeal to a wide audience of gamers. Litil Divil is also in NTSC mode, which is another plus, considering most of the CD-32's software (especially the really good games like Tower Assault and Super Stardust among others) is in PAL Mode.
Litil Divil is one of the best CD-32 games out there and is definitely a must have.
Puzzling Circumstances Each challenge requires some thought and sometimes a tool purchased with the gold you remove from the discovered skeletons of past gamers.

Fred Fish Disks 1060 to 1080 An Amiga Communications Program, Amiga BASIC compiler, Arexx program directory, and more from the Fred Fish Library.
With the Fred Fish Disk 1000. Mr. Fish completed a landmark in freely redistributable software. He also completed his last floppy disk and turned to CD-ROM as a means of distributing software on the Amiga. Unfortunately, many Amiga users still do not have a CD-ROM for their favorite computer but want to remain current with the best that the non-commercial software world has to offer. For these users, Fred has authorized the creation of a floppy library series to coincide with his CD-ROM releases.
Fred Fish Disk 1041 to 1060 are described below.
Fred Fish Disk 1060 AmiTCP-Demo 4.0 A demonstration version of AmiTCP IP: the most videly used TCP iP protocol stack for the Amiga.

Author: Lee Kindness Fred Fish Disk 1075 db 2.5 Database with GadTool look db is a small and fast database program that I wrote after having tested numerous other PD database programs and always found something lacking or irritating me. They might have dozzens of features not found in db, but they lacked font sensitivity and a standard GUI look and OS 3.0 behaviour. My main need was to keep record on addresses and telephone numbers of friends and companies.
Before v2.0 db was fixed fo be just an address and telephone database, but that has changed. The program is designed to handle information of your choice. Currently you have to use a file editor to specify the database fields and layout as there is no GUI for that.
Anyway that’s a one time job, then you just USE the database and have fun.

Author: Stephan Fuhrmann Fred Fish Disk 1079 Reminder 6.0 A nice reminder utility.
Reminder keeps an eye on a list of messages and commands, which the user (you) wants to be shown and or executed at a specific time or time intervals. Any or all of the timeparameters can be wildcards. Once every minute the list is checked, and if a match between the systemclock and a time specification is found a window will pop up, and the message(s) will be shown and or the command(s) will be execuled. Because Reminder is supposed to run as a backgroundprocess, it is designed to be memory efficient and use as little CPU time as possible. Should you however be the owner of an unexpanded
A500, or for any other reason NOT want the program to run continuous, it is possible to show all messages for today at once, and then die (when using this option no commands will be executed). Author: Ebbe Holleris Petersen LazyBench t .20 Launches applications from a ListView. LazyBench is the perfect solution for lazy people with a hard disk crammed full of goodies, which are too difficult to reach because they are buried away in drawers inside drawers, inside drawers. From then on, you can use its hot key to pop up its window and effortlessly launch your favourite applications (Tools or
Projects) from a ListView. LazyBench is 100% OS compliant and has been extensively tested with tools like Enforcer and Mungwall, has a real font adaptative GUI with a dynamic layout engine, supports Locale, virtual and public screens, third parties graphics boards, and is fully userconfigurable. Usually these features come at a price, in terms of executable size, performance, or both, but not in this case: LazyBench is just 16472 bytes long, works well even with a plain 68000 CPU, and doesn't need any custom libraries, handlers or devices that aren't already a part of the Amiga's operating
system. Author: Werther ‘Mircko’ Pirani FlushCX 2.01 The ultimate commodity killer. FlushCX is a useful tool which terminates all active commodities and that way some memory is gained.

Commodity that lets you install hotkeys for flipping through screens. Fliplt lets you specify a hotkey to push the frontmost screen to 1he back, and a hotkey to bring the rearmost screen to the front. This is useful when using programs that do not have depth gadgets on their screens. Author: Michael J Barsoom Forcelcon 1.8 Substitute Icon images and positions Forcelcon is an utility mainly for users of CDRom drives or users of networking software capable of sharing devices and icons. Since one can nol snapshot the position of a volume's icon (on read only media), nor replace it by a
user-defined one, I wrote this utility.
Forcelcon allows you to set the position of a disk's icon and or replace it by a different image icon which doesn't have to be a disk.info file. All types of “.info" files may be selected. Special features include inheritance of device specific settings, specifying the root drawer's size position and display flags modes.
Forcelcon may even change the look and position of Applcons. Author: Kai Iske Fred Fish Disk 1080 Picticon 1.1Scales pictures into icons. Os3.x only. Allows pictures to be dropped onto an appicon.
