amiga and old blitz basic prog - please help

Hi all,
I need someone to help me, years ago I wrote a prog. for displaying
fractals, and uploaded it to Aminet. I recently wished to download
the source listing, (fully public domain), but found I had dfficulty
reading it (full of control characters), as I now only use a m*soft pc,
It needs someone with an Amiga and the old Blitz Basic ( .bb2 file).
of course I could email the .bb2 file, if only someone could put it
in a format I could read (I can follow most of it, but the details are needed for a rewrite of it.) It is in
http://aminet.net/package/gfx/fract/fraktool and is a fractal graphics
generator program. I am halfway through my new prog. 'grafXtool'
and am having to re-figure out the mathematics!
Any help here would be gratefully received, of course
regards, Brian Hills

Hi, Brian, and welcome to EAB!

I see what you mean!

I'll install my copy of AmiBlitz2 tomorrow and see if I can translate the Fraktool.bb2 file into something you can better understand on your Windows PC.

amiga and old blitz basic prog - please help

Wow! That was a quick reply, Prowler - thank you for reading my request!
I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do, I searched my filing cabinet, but have long ago binned all my programming print-outs. I live in hope of getting my source code back!
best, Brian Hills

Sure you can Brian but I would suggest not posting it as "address@hotmail.com". Instead use something like "address @ hotmail.com" so that spambots don't pick it up

amiga and old blitz basic prog - please help

Thank you , Damien D for that,
my email is brian @ bhills.orangehome.co.uk, without the spaces.
If you wish to email me Prowler, please do, I was an avid Amiga user in
the old days, started with an Ohio c4p superboard, then Acorn Electron
kit, then Atari 800, then Lorraine, as the first Amiga's were called.
(sadly, pc's are rife)
regards, Brian Hills

Okay, Brian, I will email you the result if you prefer. I can't see that the translation will be of interest to others. In any case, it's freely available to anyone with a Blitz Basic installation.
