Pure C manual?

Post by sandord » Wed Jul 22, 2020 12:01 pm

I'm wondering whether the Pure C manual was ever distributed in a digital form, or scanned for that matter. I can't seem to find anything at all on the interwebs.

I'm not looking for links to illegal copies or anything, just wondering...

I know there's a summary (https://info-coach.fr/atari/documents/_ ... ew-JLG.pdf) around. In this summary, a reference is made to the full Pure C manual.

I think I found some documentation, though I think it is short of being a full manual. I will see if I can find it.

I also have the English version of Pure C with all the help in English, not German.

Beside the pdf you linked which has some additional information, there is not much in it that is not also part of the online help. The help file has also been converted to st-guide format, available at https://www.atari-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=70&t=29468 and can also be viewed online here

Sorry, seems like I had the same file you had, so I'll be downloading the stuff that @thorsten.otto mentioned. Attached is the English version of Pure C itself, just remove the .txt from the end and unzip.

FYI I downloaded the files and had a look, and they are the equivalent of the Pure C help files, so you will get the same using it via the English version I uploaded.

Yes, contents should be the same, only converted to ST-Guide format. And before anybody thinks i want to take credit for that: that conversion was not done by me, but by @TheNameOfTheGame. "Only" the ability to display that online in html format was done by me.
