Companion Disks for Abacus C Books?

I have bought the two Abacus books:
Amiga C for Beginners by Dirk Schaum
Amiga C for Advanced Programmers by Bleek, Jennrich and Schulz

The trouble is that I don't have the companion disks. Does anybody know where I can get them?

Hi Controller,

have a look here : http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=42181
The files are still on the EAB file server. Hope that helps

I mentioned in the other thread above I have some of those floppies. I just checked and have 6 of them, all originals (but at least a couple have some bad tracks - some amiga owners do not keep their disks well), and one of them happens to be Amiga C For Beginners. As you can tell by the other thread I stilll haven't gotten 'round to dumping them. Pester me by PM if you really need it soon.

This is what I have if you are interested in others, not sure what is already available as I found FTP site hard to navigate for these:
Amiga C For Beginners (1989)
Amiga System Programming Guide (1989)
Advanced Systems Programming For The Amiga (1989)
Amiga More Tricks & Tips (1989)
Amiga Dos Inside & Out (1988)
Amiga Dos Inside & Out Revised (still sealed inside book!)

I'm interested in the companion disk to Amiga C for beginners.

But no need to rush it. Just pm me, when you are ready to sent it to me.

Kind regards
Tommy

I have looked in the file-server once more and fond that somebody have typed in the book Amiga C for beginners!

It is on the TOSEC/Docs/Alliance Docs Disk 1(1991)(Alliance).zip

Still no sign of the companion disks though...

Don't want to start another thread so...

I picked up this book recently... I have been searching but I cant find the disk that accompanies the book - did it ever come to light that someone has the disk...?

Be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction of it...

In the Zone I have placed the following from my post above (filenames inside archive abacusfloppies_6_7_8_10_12.zip start with ABx where x is the number of the Abacus book on the spine):

Amiga C For Beginners (1989)
Amiga System Programming Guide (1989)
Advanced Systems Programming For The Amiga (1989)
Amiga More Tricks & Tips (1989)
Amiga Dos Inside & Out (1988)

Not done as books have the floppies sealed (may do later):
Amiga Dos Inside & Out Revised
The Best Amiga Tricks & Tips
