    Hi I bought Graphics, Animation and Charts.
    On Location 1250 of 1339 of Kindle Cloud Reader it states source code for finished Strip Chart Recorder is:
    It is only text and no hyper link.
    So My questions are:
    1) Can you please supply the source code.
    2) Is it easy to add more than one line?
    If so how would I start to do that please?

  2. In reply to Martin Whitlock.
    I just emailed you a copy of that source file. It’s also the last file in the .zip file containing all the source files.


  3. Hello from France!

    I could find no “mailto” link, so I am using this page to contact you.

    According to my computer, in 2015, you wrote me about AUGUSTA.

    At the moment, in France, we are in “containment mode”, so we have more free time than usual.

    I would like to take this opportunity to finish ressurrecting AUGUSTA.

    As I explained, 5 years ago, all I am missing is the source code of the run-time system.

    5 years ago, you said that you would send it to me, but maybe you were busy with something else?

    What is sure is that, if you search for “Edward Mitchell”, one of the first thing that appears online is “AUGUSTA”.

    It is just a pity that your most famous work can no longer be used, because of the missing RTS!

    Mr. Emmanuel Roche, France
