Is there any news on when the HTML version of the core manual will be released? IMO PDF is fine if you're going to make a dead tree version, but that gets expensive very quickly when you have an Epson inkjet with a voracious appetite for cartridges.. I find HTML much more convenient and faster to use in electronic form.... Chris -- New sig in the works Explorer2260 Designer and Coder http://www.starforge.co.uk

Mr. Environmentalist You could convert PDF to HTML by yourself. The description of the free tool is found at http://www.sanface.com/winpdfdata.html There are several commercial products that do the same thing but better. Still they cost money! Hope this helps. Geo... helping hand Chris wrote:

:)) LOL. No, far from it in fact. The paper isn't a problem, but at 20 UKP a time official epson cartridges pretty well rule out "low priority" printing. I'd do it at work, but they tend to get a bit sarcastic if people lock up the printers for too long ;)

It's nearly ready. Within the next week, REBOL Press will be offering the printed and bound version of REBOL/Core User Guide. I'll notify the list when available. -- Danny Ramsey, Publisher, REBOL Press The Official Source for REBOL Books http://www.REBOLpress.com Chris wrote:

Hmm, what about possibility of translation in .pdf version? Or would it be possible to have .html version available? It would allow us to localize it .... some users could find local language version usefull ... Cheers, -pekr-

Is it different to the one on the web site. I've noticed a few syntax errors with that one. -- Graham Chiu
