The Memphis Area Computer Council will hold their Computer Faire on June 4th at State Tech's Fulton Hall. User's Groups from all over the city and representing many different computers will meet and display and demo software and hardware and just generally show their computers off. The Memphis Amiga Group, as at previous shows, will attend in force and hopefully we can put together another killer show. As a means of keeping attendance figures MACC will hold a raffle of donated computer wares, so if you have something you would like to donate to the raffle please let me know. I will have more on the faire later.

Design a logo for your club and win fame and the undying gratitude of your fellow members. We may even throw in a small prize. Don't feel like you need to be an artist to enter. Your idea is all that's needed, we have lots of folks in the group that can turn your idea into the finished product. I think we need to restrict our designs to black and white (no color please). Bring your ideas and designs to the May meeting and we'll pick a winner.

1988 CEBIT Show Announcements

With over 500 members of the press in attendance, Commodore held a press conference the first day of CEBIT (3/16/88). Chairman Irving Gould took this opportunity to announce the continuation of the company's successful financial picture. For the 6 month period ending 12/31/87, net income rose to $34 million, up from $25.5 million in the same period one year ago. This represents an increase of 33%. Mr. Gould stated that 80% of the net income came from products not present in the Commodore line 2 years ago.

Mr. Gould announced the redesign of the PC line, and the further development of the Amiga computer family. Plans for the Amiga 2500 and Amiga 3000 were discussed. Mr. Gould STRESSED "the A2000 will remain compatible with all new attributes of new Amiga products:.

Details of new products are:

AMIGA 2500AT will have the following specifications:

AMIGA 2500UX will be equipped with

The Unix included with the A2500UX is a proprietary high performance windowing user shell. Also optional for the A2500UX will be a tapestream storage device.

It was also announced that Commodore is continuing work on the Amiga 3000, which will be based on Motorola's 68030 chip. Some of the attributes of this machine include networking capabilities and multiple mass storage devices of up to 2.2 gigabytes. Release of the A3000 is slated for calendar year 1989.

Other new products also shown at the Commodore booth include:

In other news from the press conference:

Commodore announced a cooperative effort with a large scale research group to develop a high performance workstation. The West German Society for Biotechnological Research and Commodore are working together to develop the workstation which will be based on the Amiga 2000 with Transputer. The workstation is aimed at the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, and is considered ideal conditions for graphics applications and display of molecular structures.

Chairman Gould announced no plans for Commodore to increase its' computer prices due to DRAM price increases. We will continue to supply our market at price levels now in effect.

It also announced that enhanced graphics chips with non-interlace mode will be available for the Amiga 500 and Amiga 2000.

Commodore is the leader in the West German microcomputer industry, with a market share of over 50%. With professional systems, Commodore ranks in 2nd place in Germany, and is unchallenged in the home market.

European press reaction to the conference has been very positive. Some of the headlines from the show include: "Commodore and Nixdorf Grow, Grow, Grow" and "Commodore Attacks the Professional and Business Market".


by David Head MAG Librarian

We all know that the Amiga computer line is the most powerful personal computer line for the money and in some regards the most powerful pc period. There is a weak spot, however, that is being addressed in a big way. It is the AmigaDOS that is being improved upon by a large group of programmers headed up by Charlie Heath of Microsmiths, Inc.

Their main objectives were to decrease the size of the programs, maintain full compatibility with AmigaDOS, make the different programs in the cli faster and easier to use, and create a better environment for software developers. These objectives have been met for the most part in release 2 of ARP.

I have been using ARP version 1.1 for over a month now and I am amazed at the quality of this software. It is, on the average, less than half the size of AmigaDOS. If nothing else, this saves a lot of disk space. The different commands work the same as AmigaDOS on the surface, its when you start to use wildcards and take advantage of their extended help templates that the power of the different commands show up.

The first week or so that I used ARP I didn't even look at the manual that comes with the program and I had no problem at all. I was missing out on a big advantage though, in that the commands are really much easier to use than AmigaDOS. So READ the manual on the disk! The following are some of the differences in ARP and AmigaDOS:

1> Lets say that you want to send all the files in the current directory that end in ".c" to the printer, there are three ways we can do this

Type #?.c to PRT:
Copy #?.c to PRT:
Join #?.c to PRT:

Incidentally, ARP also supplies a more standard set of wildcards, in addition to the ones above you could also do

Type *.c to PRT:
Copy *.c to PRT:
Join *.c to PRT:

Here is the response you get from AmigaDOS

1> Type #$.c to PRT:
Can't open #?.c
1> Copy #?.c to PRT:
Destination must be a directory

2> Lets say that you want to move three files memo1 memo2 and memo3 to a directory on the same disk called Oldmemos, using AmigaDOS you would have to do it this way:

Rename memo1 Oldmemos
Rename memo2 Oldmemos
Rename memo3 Oldmemos

that's a lot of typing, to do the same with ARP you would:

Rename memo? Oldmemos

3> We all like the templates AmigaDOS provides when you type in a command and put a "?" after it don't we? Well, ARP takes you one step further. By placing a "?" at the end of a template you get an extended template! Here is an example:

1> Type ?
FROM/..., TO/k, OPT/k: ?
Type wildcards [TO Output] [OPT H(ex) IN(um))

4> Another example is ARP tries to give you useful error messages:

Echo "Hello World!
Bad Args to Echo

not much help there? well lets try ARP

Echo "Hello World!
Bad Args: Unmatched quotes

5> Type to PRT: turns your computer into a typewriter in that everything typed on the keyboard after that command is sent directly to the printer

Type to DF0:MyFile this time keyboard output is sent to the MyFile file on DF0:

Type echos your keyboard output to your current window

You should try to do this with AmigaDOS!

6> "Resident Programs" these are programs that are loaded into memory only once no matter how any times they are ran. This can save a lot of memory.

All of the power of ARP is yours for not $50.00 not $25.00 not even $10.00. It is available on MAG-085 for the tremendous amount of $2.00. The authors are not asking for anything either it is PD! By the way, the disk has a complete user's manual that covers the program in general and each command seperately. There might even be some more goodies on the disk. Who knows? Not me, yet!

NEWS FLASH!!! The real DIGI-VIEW adapter is HERE and it WORKS!

Tom Jones checked the adapter out on his 2000 and it worked fine, it will also work on the 500.

Speaking about Tom, he received his harddrive controller card the other day and on it it said "for A2500" so I think the news from Germany is for real! See elsewhere.

FRED FISH DISKS we have the following FF disks to add to our library thanks to MIKE WALLACE!


For a catalog of what is on Fred Fish disks look in the back of an Amazing Computing Magazine. Fred Fish disks are now only $3.00.

Well, that's all folks! Until the meeting that is.


review by: Garry Lingle

Is there such a thing as a inexpensive, compiled language for the Amiga? I've been looking for sometime for a language that would allow me to write some small utilities while still allowing me to continue to eat. All that I could find were compilers that require the loss of some anatomical appendix to purchase. While professional Amiga programmers might be able to justify the cost of these expensive compilers, what are the numerous non-professional Amiga programmers to use for their non-commercial needs?

Well, I've ended my search. I've found something, that for now at least, meets my programming needs at a price that I can afford. And since I'm such a thoughtful, kind, and considerate fellow, I've decided to share my finding with you and thereby save you, possibly, a long search. :-)

Actually, my purpose in writing this article, in addition to helping Ed out by trying to fill some space in the newsletter, is to inform other MAG members about the language that I've found. I hope that others will also be interested in it and will use it and, more importantly, be able to help me use it. There, my true motive has been revealed and you will understand it better once I finally tell you the language that I've found is.

To make a long introduction end, Draco is the language that I found. It definitely meets the cost requirement since it is available on Fred Fish disks 76 & 77. These two disks comprise the Draco distribution set and contain the Draco compiler, the CRT library, the Ded editor, all documentation, and numerous example programs. In addition to the cost of the Fred Fish disk, since Draco is shareware, a donation is appropriate if you do end up using it.

The uses for Draco are numerous. In fact, Chris Gray, the author of Draco, describes the language as a "system programming language" suitable for writing operating systems, compilers, editors, and databases that's also suitable for other applications such as games, graphics, etc. The structure and syntax of Draco is a combination of C and Pascal. In fact Chris lists the inadequacies of each these popular languages that he addresses with Draco.

The easiest and best way to illustrate the differences and similarities between Draco and C and Pascal is through the use of some sample code. Below are listings, taken from the document WHYDRACO, of programs in each of the languages that performs the same function.


        i, j : INTEGER;

        FOR i := 0 TO 10 DO BEGIN
            FOR j := 0 TO i DO
                WRITE(j : 2, ' ');
        WRITELN("All done.")


    #include <stdio.h>

    main(argc, argv)
    int argc;
    char *argv[];
        int i, j;

        for (i = 0; i <= 10; ++i) {
            for (j = 0; j <= i; ++j)
                printf("%2d ", j);
        printf("All done.\n");


    proc main()void:
        int i, j;

        for i from 0 upto 10 do
            for j from 0 upto i do
                write(j : 2, ' ');

            writeln("All done.");

The following are my impressions of the Draco language. I am not by any means an expert at Draco; my background is more in the Pascal area. I don't even profess to be very knowledgeable of all of the features of Draco. With all of that said, here we go.

Personally I feel more comfortable will a compiler that does type-checking and prevents me from doing dumb things unintentionally. Draco's type-checking is not as strong as Pascal's but it allows for explicit type-faking and type-changing.

Like C, Draco does not contain a proper "string" data type. Instead Draco uses the same method as C, a pointer to a sequence of characters terminated with a null. This has been the hardest aspect of Draco for me. Take my word for it; strange things happen when you reference an uninitialized string-pointer.

While there's a lot of documentation for Draco, the documentation contains few examples. The only examples of actual Draco code are the sample programs included on the documentation disk. This arrangement has the drawbacks of causing a lot of searching and jumping back and forth. I would like to have some short examples in the documentation and perhaps references to the sample programs.

A major plus for Draco is that it provides access to all of the Amiga libraries, for example Intuition. This means that anything that can be done with C can be done with Draco. Draco also provides its own I/O system, utilities, and CRTstrings via their pointers, and do formatted screen output. All in all, I'm very pleased with Draco. I hope that my first Draco project, a Draco source-code formatting utility, will be finished shortly. I will post it on the Duck Pond when it's ready. I also hope that others will find Draco useful.


review by: Tom Jones

Dynamic Drums, from New Wave Software, is an interesting program which, in short, turns your Amiga into a smart, easy to use drum machine. The program comes on two disks; one is a program disk, the other a data disk. Also included with the program is a tutorial session on a cassette tape. Dynamic Drums uses IFF sampled sounds to create a drum kit of 10 sounds that can be activated by tapping a number on the numeric keypad. Any of the 100 sampled drum sounds, or any IFF sampled sound can be assigned to create your own drum kit. After a drum kit is created or one of the several kits provided is loaded, then you can create a pattern using either the keypad or the mouse to place the sounds in the Graphic Pattern Display, which is sort of like a graph with time being represented horizontally and the number of the particular drum being played at that instant. As many as 10 patterns (A-J) can be created and then strung together to play as a song. No more than 4 drums can be played at one time though since Amiga has only 4 sound channels. This is not really a big thing though since most drummers can only play, at most, 4 sounds at once anyway (2 hands, 2 feet). A song is represented as numbers and letters. For instance the song 5a2bc would play pattern "a" five times, pattern "b" two times, and pattern "c" one time. A metronome is also provided to help keep the beat while entering patterns. If you are like me and can't tell a beat from a hole in the wall, Dynamic Drums will quantize for you. In other words it will automatically correct for errors in timing. Dynamic Drums will also sync to external MIDI devices such as sequencers, keyboards, and other drum machines.

Dynamic Drums is a heck of a lot of fun to use but a couple of I had a couple of minor problems with it. First both disks that I received had read/write errors on them. It didn't seem to affect the program but it left me wondering when the program would vaporize. Another problem was that the version I received was an older version (ver. 1.01). A new version has been released and is on the way. It promises to have some useful improvements such as velocity sensitivity to external MIDI devices.

1.3 is Coming!

By Howard the Duck

Gamma copies of the upcoming 1.3 release of Workbench and Kickstart have been making the rounds lately. And while the most universally anticipated improvements are sure to be the greatly improved printer drivers (graphics dumps can be anywhere from two to twenty times faster!) and a revised preferences program (offering such graphics options as choice of resolution, antialiasing, dithering, scaling, margins, and color correction), there are a lot of other changes that will make 1.3 and even bigger set up than was the 1.2 release of a year ago.

Opening the new 1.3 Workbench will reveal on first glance, no significant difference from 1.2's window except for the absence of the demos drawer, removed to make more room for some of 1.3's enhancements. Looking a little closer you should notice that the CLI icon has been renamed "Shell". This is your first clue that some big improvements have been made to CLI. If you've been using the CONman public domain console driver or some other public domain CLI enhancer, you'll recognize and appreciate the changes Commodore has made here. As with CONman, the keyboard's cursor keys can now be used for editing the current CLI line and recalling previous commands for editing and/or resubmittal. But the new Amiga Shell does more. If you've prepared a textfile called CLI-Startup in your s directory, Shell will automatically execute those commands in the same way Startup-Sequence is executed upon booting. Here you can include commands to instruct your Amiga to load commonly used CLI commands like Copy, Cd, and Dir and make them permanently resident in memory so that the Amiga won't have to continually go out to disk for them; this should remind MS-DOS users of the command.com file but with a bit more versatility since you get to select your resident commands from anything on the disk. Another capability here is to apply aliases to these command files names so that you can save a little typing, or customize your resident commands to look like another more popular operating system. But if you are trying to IBMize your commands, Commodore had gone even further in helping you out. The Protect command has been modified to add several new options. The Script option can be used to label a file as being of Script type, a text file which can be executed like a program without requiring that you type the Executed command first! Of course the big change in AmigaDOS/CLI is the complete rewriting of the system commands in assembler to enhance speed and reduce size. Other improvements made to CLI include changes to existing programs and the addition of some new commands to your c directory, including: CMD (redirects output much like the old C64 command), FASTFONTS (text speed up utility), INSTALL (now has a CHECK option to look for viruses), PROTECT (can now make files archive, hidden, pure, or script), LIST (show the new Protect flags), and LOCK (protects hard drive partitions with a password). FORMAT has been changed too. FORMAT now includes an FFS option which will allow you to use a totally different file structure than AmigaDOS uses on your disks. Hard drive users may wish to speed up disk access by initializing their hard drives with the Fast File System option. FFS speeds up file access by removing some of the redundancy built into the AmigaDOS file structure. This also adds about 5% to the available space on your disk.

If we look deeper into the Workbench disk, we will find some new libraries, handlers and devices in the libs, l and devs directories. This is where we'll find the drivers for the shell and fast file system and a new faster version of the MathIEEE library which will recognize the presence of a 68881 math coprocessor. In here too we'll find: speak-handler (lets you redirect output from CLI commands to the translator and narrator devices), pipe-handler (simulates the UNIX pipe) and aux-handler (permits multi-use by opening a CLI window onto a terminal connected to the serial port).

If you take a look at 1.3's Extras disk you'll find some welcome additions there too. In an extra fonts directory, you'll find the Times Roman, Helvetica, and other classic fonts, licensed from Adobe, that are used with PostScript laser printers. Additional, less common, printer drivers are to be placed on the Extras disk too.

The big change to Kickstart (reputedly the only change) is the ability to boot from any device, not necessarily DF0:. With this change you can not only boot from physical devices like hard drives but logical ones like the new recoverable ram disk that will be supplied on Workbench 1.3. A500 and A2000 owners will have to buy a replacement rom chip to take advantage of this feature.

Version 1.3 of the operating system is expected to be released RSN with little or no changes from this preliminary gamma version expected. Although several of these improvements have been available in public domain or shareware form from various sources, its gratifying to see Commodore listening to Amiga users and developers and providing the kind of standardized reliable, speedy and professional operating system typically found on only the most expensive personal computers. Way to go Commodore!


by The Unknown Amigoid

If you've been following the stock market lately, you may have noticed that Commodore has quietly rebounded from the crash of '87. This quarter will be Commodore's eighth consecutive profitable quarter. Quite an improvement since the multi-million dollar losses of two years ago when the Amiga was being introduced. According to figures recently released for the latter half of 1987, Commodore has increased its net income by a fourth to a third per quarter over the previous year's quarters. Much of this good news can be attributed to the release of the two newest Amiga models, the 500 and the 2000. The Amiga line reportedly accounted for 40% of Commodore's December revenue! The C64 and C128 family coming in second, and Commodore's family of MS-DOS machines placing third despite the introduction of the PC 60, an 80386 high-end addition. 70% of these sales were in the European market, though, with West Germany (where Commodore has slightly more than a 50% share of all microcomputer sales) the leader there. CEO Irving Gould has pledged to strengthen the marketing and sales operations in the U.S. with its new direct sales force and a systematic effort to capitalize on government and educational opportunities. Formally announced in this same report, as being under development were the much rumored Amiga high-resolution graphics chip set, and UNIX compatible brigeboard for the Amiga 2000.

I was watching The Discovery Channel last night on cable. It often has some interesting shows on exploration, science and technology. Usually they are imports from Australian television, but last night they had an hour long special on computer graphics. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you check your local listings to find out when it will be repeated. I'm sure it will. TDC repeats everything at least tem times. As I expected, they devoted most of the hour to the kind of high tech graphics that can only be produced on the big multi-million dollar machines. You know, the computer created network logos and stuff created for movie special effects. They showed experimental stuff done at Lucasfilm and discussed how the opening titles for Amazing Stories were created. They of course mentioned the Cray and dedicated graphics machines like Chryon and they demoed the capabilities of the Paint Box. Near the end of the show though, they got around to showing some of the kind of stuff being done on inexpensive personal computers. They showed a small comparatively crude cartoon-like thing that must have been done on an Apple II, C64 or Atari, and in fact, they mentioned the Apple and Atari companies by name. Then, there on the screen was a scene from Return to Atlantis, with a character speaking in the unmistakable Amiga voice. This was followed by the now famous drawing of the gold King Tut mask on a screen that was clearly the original Amiga version of Deluxe Paint. They showed some of the things one can do with EA's powerful paint program. Indeed, for anyone who was unfamiliar with computer graphics, they made DPaint look as good as the expensive Quantel package they had demoed earlier. These scenes lasted only a short time but they showed just how much can be done without having to spend millions or at least ten of thousands on equipment. But did the announcer mention the name of the computer that made all this possible? Did they mention the name of company which made the computer? I'll let you guess.
