I am an Atari user from way back when. I was a fan of the Action! programming language back when my Agari was my everyday computer. I am trying to learn how to use a program called ACEENT (a compiler compiler program), and I thought it would be fun to re-create the Action! programming language as a cross compiler...(yep, know about Effectus and have it funning on my computer).
But alas, much to my woe...over the last 20 to 30 years, I seem to have lost my action programming manual. I am hoping to find an electronic version of this if I can...but anything will do.
Another thing that would be handy is Action! sourcecode and the corresponding generated code. This would help me in reverse engineering the code generator. I am hoping to get my old Atari running again (I still have it)...an old 800, with an ATR0000. None of this stuff has been powered up for about 20 years.
