re: If I recall correctly, Dan Hicks did the below-the-MI part and Dick
Bains ran interference and created the compiler.  I think they both worked
on the run-time - EPM.  Dick told me that it was a Saturday garage project -
just the two of them.

Thanks.  Mike doesn't really have a choice.  He can't get an EPM compiler
anymore.
Pascal, Fortran, EPM C, and whatever the other one was can't be purchased
and I doubt if
earlier versions will run after version 3.

I didn't want to go back that far ... Pascal was Dan Hicks' baby as I
recall.  A pity it
didn't take off although I would have preferred IBM to release the Logitech
Modula-2
compiler used for QM -- at least until a full-blown Smalltalk environment
was ported to
the AS/400 .... Ah! such things one dreams on ....

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
