Welcome to the Un-Official HomePage for

This page is maintained by David C. Barnes. My personal HomePage is at http://www.sci.wsu.edu/math/faculty/barnes/david.htm

Here is the first contribution to this page. It is the

"Classical" Sprint Simtel Archive,

and I stole it from the Simtel link at http://www.acs.oakland.edu/oak/, however, there are no longer Sprint files at that location.

Here is an FTP mirror of the

Compuserve Applications Forum Sprint library.

This is a very large collection (about 4.69 megs) of Sprint related files. Here is a file named 00ReadMe.txt (130 kbytes) that tells what is there. You may also get the entire library as a large one lump ZIP file.

Thanks to Justin Simms for giving me this stuff to post here.

The "Official Borland Sprint" Stuff is located at: (Thanx to Rev. Joe Fremer for giving me this link.)

However, for some reason you can not access this link from the standard Borland HomePage located at http://www.borland.com. We do not know why.

If that link ever goes away (which, considering Borlands treatment of us Sprinters, may be at any time) then you may still get it all here in a one lump zip file:

Borlands "Official" stuff, (523,371 bytes).

 

It decompresses into 50 or so zip files that, in turn, decompress into usable stuff.

There is a mailing list for Sprint. if want to send an Email to everyone in the entire Sprint mailing list then you may simply send one Email to:

SPRINT-L@LISTSERV.NODAK.EDU

This is a good way to get answers to questions and make other contacts with Sprinters.

You may also download my Sprint Icon. It is just a little picture of the Sprint "starting gun" . Soon, I will be posting a number of my other macros so check back now and then.

If you are interested in making Web pages using Sprint you might try this link. It gives a way of converting Scribe format (which is the precursor to the Sprint macro language) into HTML.

I have never used this method (I use MS-FrontPage) but it might work OK. If you try this send me your opinion of it and I'll post your review here.
