   Since the Primer gang has still not put the Mac exe up on their FTP
server, and I've received a couple of requests for it, I've bundled the
distribution, with a ThinkC project, and the executable as a binhexed,
self-extracting archive and put it up on our server (salk-sc2.sdsc.edu) in:
[anonymous.mac] (it's a VAX).  Feel free to distribute it, but only as a
complete set (to adhere to the original distribution policy).
   Beware, macaholics, it is the same text-window interface that pops up on
a VAX or PC, but it is certainly handy if you need it.
   The ThinkC project comes to you by the good graces of Richard Cooke of
Universite de Perpignan (COOKE at FRPERP51.bitnet).

   For your info:
