Thanks for the interesting questions. My comments below. Thanks.
Section 1 - General Questions
1.1 - Are you developing software to run under GEM (any version)? If
No go to 1.2
Not developing but had some fun making simple ports of bwbasic
and 4tH to GEM. I enjoy using 4tH in the GEM environment.
1.1.1 - What version of GEM are you developing for? (eg: OpenGEM, DR
GEM/3, Atari GEM)
FreeGEM & OpenGEM
1.1.2 - What tools are you using?
Pacific-C, turbo-C, djgpp, bindings and utilities from John Elliott
1.1.3 - Are they free? (as in 'really' free - released under a
free-ware or open source license)
1.1.4 - Where do you get your documentation? From the tools you use,
from other developers, from google?
Mostly from John Elliott's site and the related "FreeGEM" & "OpenGEM"
1.2 - Do you *need* to use GEM? If No go to 1.3
No. Really cannot think of case where a better
alternative is not available (though it my be more modern).
1.3 - Do you enjoy using GEM? If No go to 1.4
1.3.1 - Why?
It's fun playing with this bit of living history.
I completely missed seeing it. As a user (mosty how
I use a computer), I moved from dos to windows with coming
across it. If I was lucky, I could get my hands on mac
at the time.
1.3.2 - What would you change about current GEM versions if you could?
It would be interesting to see if anything more happens with GEMXM
1.4 - Please give me a free form comment about what you think of GEM.
It's great fun, many thanks to the FreeGEM, GEM-dev community for making
