Problem trying to install Storm C

I've installed a few C editors and compilers - including GCC, Dice, Hisoft C++ and now would like to try Storm C before deciding on the final one to use to advance my knowledge of C with.

I've grabbed the free version of Storm C off the net but when I try and install it - it asks for AmigaFuture@60 and won't progress without it.

Is there a legal version of this kicking around or somewhere cheap to buy it? I don't want to spend a fortune because it may not be the final choice I make and then would be a waste of cash

I don't understand, it's asking for an email address? I don't recall this.

My mistake - I missed the colon off the end. It seems to be asking either for a disk or CD as in AmigaFuture@60: It's this editor that is underlining the name because of the @. The original script is looking to copy something off it iinto Ram: then renames it and then runs that new script.

I found another install script hidden away in the files early this morning that I'm now deciphering. It may hold the answer for me.

I assume that it would be wanting Amiga Future magazine cover CD #60.

I'm a silly bugger - of course

Time to do some more deciphering or cd iso hunting

Thanks, Dave G

Deciphered the script and found the problem of installation.

A directory in the archive needed renaming!!

The place I wanted to put StormC required creating first and then assigning before starting the hidden script.

A few files left to rename on the new installation now and then I should be able to test it out.

@AndreasM

I thought Version 3 was but I only found out the other day that Version 4 is still being sold

I've actually managed to get it installed now - I just needed to make a couple of changes in the script and file names.

No, the Version are not freeware, too.
The Version on the AF CD was the fullversion, but not free.
