Free OS/2 programming books
« on: June 13, 2018, 09:05:23 pm »
I haven't posted here yet. I'm downsizing and have to dispose my remaining OS/2 material. If interested, reply by email. All items available for basically the cost of shipping. Any questions, email me.

Free to good home (you pay shipping):

Backmaster backup software for OS/2 1.1, floppy and manual, see:

OS/2 Books Available for the cost of shipping
(Probably $5 or so per book, or will consolidate)
If no one is interested the books will go into the dumpster shortly.

All books soft-cover unless noted. Books will be marked unavailable when claimed.
Books have very little to no underlining, highlighting, etc.

Real-World Programming for OS/2 2.11 – Blain, Delimon, English (edges are a bit wrinkled from a water spill) 842pp + disk

OS/2 Presentation Manager Programming – Cheatham, Reich, Robinson (edges are a bit wrinkled from a water spill)  563pp

Book has underlining, but this does not detract from readability.

Hi Peter.

Just in case that nobody want some book, I will like to advice you to please do not throw them to the dumpster. Please send them over to the Internet Archive Book Drive. It may take some time until they scan those, but at least those will be preserved.

Maybe we can work out the shipping cost of the remaining books to the Internet Archive.
