Thread: PCopy! Info and Released issues.

  1. #1

    PCopy! Info and Released issues.

    covering all the BASICs…

    PCOPY!, a "magazine" created and offered to ALL BASIC developers all over the web. After some research amongst other BASIC forums and Websites we noticed that aside QB and family of compilers and FB, most other BASIC dialects didn't have anything close to a "magazine". Hence, PCOPY! saw the light of day. PCOPY! exists because we believe that alot of BASIC dialects out there deserve to be mentioned and talked about. Therefore, anything that pertains to any freely available BASIC can make it's way to PCOPY! being projects, new versions of compilers, new or updated libraries for these compilers, if it's about BASIC it can definitaly be in PCOPY!

    Re: PCopy! Info and Released issues.

    PCopy! #40 released at March 15th 2007 was milestone in two ways.
    For first, its new .css layout was accepted better than old dark. It was easier for eyes and not so "aggressive"
    Secondly, after issue #40, PCopy! nearly died away. Until Oct. 24'th 2007 there were no any talk about releasing anymore issues.

    Re: PCopy! Info and Released issues.

    After ages of silence, and lack of new chief editor, i decided to admit that PCopy! is "officially" a dead one.

    Subforums and subdomain of it has been removed, and all released issues are acrhived as one single download. New releases are not planned.

    Thanks to all who has helped with this project in past years. To get all issues, go to basicprogramming.org/links and see under Something to remember.
