• Subject: Calling for API interface examples (Was: QWCRSVAL API)

Why not? Here is an example of how it just creates more work for YOU:

The "QWCRSVAL API" tread had a few entries about "Is API-interfacing easy or 
not", so I sugested to make a collection of such
interfaces. This was welcomed, so I had to do it (more work!).

However the collection is ment as a place where YOU contribute with YOUR 
examples. Ladies and Gentlemen: The time is up now to post
your examples to me. I'll then put them on the air at 

The examples should be sent to 
mailto:apiinterfaces@hkrebs.dk?Subject=API-interface as attached zip-files 
following this scheme:
 o  Placed in the Public Domain with no restrictions at all. 
 o  Packed in a PC .ZIP-file, source only. 
 o  Simple stand alone programs, ready to compile, test and modify. Subroutines 
are supplemented by a small main routine that sets
up the parameters etc. 
 o  Authors name and @ddress included if he accepts questions about the 
 o  Restrictions and prerequisites described in the program source. No need for 
any additional user guides. 

For those of you who just want to improve your own collection: Don't go there 
yet. There is only one single interface at the
moment. But hopefully in a few weeks.

I'd like to see a collection.  I can't contribute much yet, but with a
few examples to get started, I'm sure I can offer something.
