how I acquired my Altair..
- Hi Mike, Dave,
The binaries for Altair basic can be found on Andy Kessel's site;
I don't think anyone has the source??? I think "Bill" and "Paul" still
close to their "blackened hearts", and as such have not released it to
domain. The docs are available from our most majestic list leader,
Steve Shepherd for a modest duplication and shipping costs at;
Mike, what applications for the Altair do you have, and what are you
asking for them?
