Blitz2 Manual

Hi guys,
Just uploaded to the zone a Word version of Blitz2 Manual.
Itīs a rectified version of the scanned manual, repaged and with Blitz keywords in Bold.
Maybe someone wants to convert to Pdf
Hope you enjoy ppl.

Although not a coder, I think it is a great job.

Sounds interesting, a PDF-version would be better though, rather has PDF that WORD-docs me want..

Neatly to have my thinkpad beside the screen with the reference manuals =)

Heh. too easy to find ... but thanks

I remember doing a CED-friendly version of the BB2-manual back in the days, but it seems to have been lost between all HD-swaps :/

Why do you donīt convert the .doc to PDF and upload it to the zone so everyone who wants can play with a PDF Blitz Basic Manual?

I used OpenOffice.org to convert the Word document to PDF. It's in the zone now. I don't know how well the formatting translated (the Word loader on OO.o stinks badly).

hello,

for informations, I have converted the blitz basic manual 2.1 f rom txt to amigaguide with the examples.

all on aminet:

http://aminet.net/search?query=blitz2+guide

Feel free to convert all in html or other format if you want.

Don't know what you want to do with the blitz guide but maybe this amigaguide version could help you.

also this guide is a part of amiblitz last distribution on:

Thanks mrodfr,
itīs always good to see that someone take their time to help all the Amiga community.
Amigaguide itīs better than txt but has a big lack, it has no search function I think the better format to amiga docs is pdf, but itīs only my thought
