OK, on to box #6.
1) 35741 HP color Display Monitor Installation Guide (loose)
2) BASIC 5.0/5.1 Programming Techniques Volume 1: General Topics
3) BASIC Language Reference Volume 1: A-N HP 9000 Series 200/300 Computers

4) Pascal 3.0 User's Guide
5) Series 200 Model 16 BASIC Operating Guide
OK I'm going to take a break now. Besides I'm running out of boxs.
I still have some HP BASIC 2.1 and BASIC 4.0 manuals. Should Al scan
those too? Opinions?
I have a slew of HP IPC manuals and HP-UX manuals and I've been talking
to Al about copying those too. Any opinions?
Shoot! While we're at it should I send Al my HP 85/86/87 manuals? What
about the 9825 manauls? Ditto the 9835 and 9845 manuals. Let see that still
leaves all the HP disk drive manuals. And I'm sure that there's more around
that I haven't thought of yet.*
*PS I also have a boxful of HP Journals that didn't go in the great purge.
I had to stop for a while to take care of business but now I'm back
with more books.

Had enough yet Al? Or should I keep going? :-)
I found another handy sized box so I packed up some more books. This lot

These are also "short" manuals in three ring binders. BTW I have some
HP-UX manuals but some of them are paperback bound. Can you scan them
without damaging them?
These should also get into today mail. If I can find more boxs, I'll
pack more books.
OK I'm packing up a box of HP books for you. I'm including:
1) Using HP BASIC for Instrument Control, a Self-Stufy Course
2) BASIC 5.0/5.1 Graphics Techniques
3) Installing, Using and Maintaining the BASIC 5.0 System
4) Pascal 3.1 User's Guide
5) Installation Guide HP 9000 Series 200 Model 226 and Model 236.
6) BASIC 5.0 Interfacing Techniques, Volume 1: General Topics
These are all in the grey HP three ring binders and are all short
(roughly 8" x 8 1/2") books. These cover a variety of topics and should
make a good start. I specificly included the Installation book (#3) since
it contains the information that Tony needs. It's probably the starting
point for everything esle but it's actually a very difficult book to find
and the reference manuals and such don't cover such basic topics as how to
boot the machines or how to create or save the operating system.
I'll probably ship this box today via USPS Media mail. I'll also go
ahead and start packing some more books.
