Manual for Lattice C

Post by LizardKing »

Hi all,

I spoke to someone at what used to be HiSoft to see if I could get a genuine copy of the Lattice C compiler from them. It appears they have no way of copying and testing ST disks, so I downloaded Lattice C 5.6 from the web. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the manual? I can't find anything on the web, but I'd be willing to pay for a photocopy.

Hi David,

that would be great, I am also very interrested in this manual. What would be the fastest for you, a scan or a paper copy of the manual ? When do you think you can be ready with it ?

in the meanwhile, here is a link to the latest version : Lattice 5.6
scroll down to the download area where lc_560.zip is to be found.

I would be also very interested to get a copy of the scan manual.

I figured out how to use the LC5 program but the difficult part is to know what reside inside the library. For example my program was using a multiplication with double and the linker was complaining about unresolved reference. Took me a lot of time and much luck to find among the numerous lib they provide the good one !!!

The other difficult part is to use the debugger it is really not intuitive without knowing the command.

Thanks

Hi,

I found this:

They sell the three volumes of Lattice C5...

But I would be also interested in getting a PDF copy...

I have got a complete original Lattice C 5.51 for you. Including disks and 5 manuals.

You can have it for free if you are willing to digitise the complete manuals so documentation will be available for the next one interested.

I can produce pdf but probably not OCR at least in first pass at it requires a lot of work.

Let me know what you think

I already planned to scan my own manuals. But my set only has three separate ones (one in German, two in English). So if your manuals are newer, before I start to scan my older ones, it would be interesting for all of us that I start with the newer set.

So, how far is this project grown? Anyone else interested?

With my Canon Scanner, I lately produced some PDF-versions of older Atari-Magazines (german) and I'm happy with the results.

I think it would be worth to keep Lattice C with its manuals for the Atari-Legacy.

I say go ahead and scan the manual :D . If Atari history is to be preserved then we need to scan all applications manuals which is what GambaseST is doing for Atari games.

I only had 60 or so pages to scan in and pdf for the ICD manual and that took ages so I know it's a daunting task but unless people start doing it, the information will eventually be lost!

Any recommendation on the scan resolution? And what about the format ?

Nyh - I posted a pm to you with my personal email. Did you received it ?

200dpi is enough in most cases. I use higher resolution only, if the letters are very small. pdf would be great.

I concur, pdf is good. Especially when it comes to printing it back out.

Seems that Hans has other things to do. He promised to send me manuals for scanning, but since weeks I heard nothing from him.

So I think the project is burried.

As I said before, I own some manuals too and I'll scan them. But in my set only two are in English; the third is in German, so the whole set will not be too much satisfying for all of us.

Regards, bolle

I will be in Colonge this weekend. Where should I drop the manuals or can you pick them up? I will be between 10:00 and 12:00 in Colonge (then I go to Frankfurt am Main). Pleas give me your home adress via a PM on this board. I hope I can convince the team to make a detour to dorop the manuals. Otherwise you will have to pick them up at: PLZ 51067 Köln (I don't know the exact adress).

I sent you a PM. Think we'll meet in Cologne.

What day do you mean exactly? Saturday (24.) or Sunday (25.)?

Last weekend I had the chance to meet Hans.

He is a really nice guy; it was a pleasure to talk to.

He gave me all his Lattice manuals (Thank you :D ), the set seems to be complete. Now it's up to me to scan the manuals for the community and as I promised before, I will do it.

This will take a while, so you all out there: Be patient and Don't panic :wink: !

Meanwhile you may praise Hans for his altruism and think what you can give to the community (other manuals, books?). I for one have collected some compiler stuff (Prospero Fortran, different Pascal compilers) and a lot of other stuff in German. It takes much time to produce electronic versions in good quality.

I would be glad to see more manuals (PDFs) to download here.

This is great! Many thanks to both of you.

I know that scanning a book is a lot of work (I even offered to do the work!) and will be patient!

What I suggest is that once you have finished a book you publish it in jpeg or pdf. I have some OCR program and I can try to convert it in text format which takes much less space and allow to search for information.

Thanks again to both of you for starting this task

There is a reason, why I urged to do the scanning myself! Because I learnt something about different tools and techniques to do this work.

Now I am able to produce a PDF that has one layer with the original typeface and look of the paper and as a second layer the pure text. Therefore you can search the PDF for text patterns and you can read and print out as a copy from the original.

There is no need for you to scan scanned images again.

I have to finish my current scanning project before I can give you a sample PDF with some pages to try.
