Steve I just knew SALT would not be represented here, then found it. Telix will always be the best terminal software ever written for DOS, complete with its own programming language.

Paul Yeah, it's just too bad you didn't take the time to get the plurals right.

Gordon E. Peterson II Yeah, and more to the point, he didn't get the "no nore" or the entire last verse right either, according to the site's "official lyrics". This particular exercise is where the devil is in all the little details.

FWIW, I actually rather liked SALT too, so am disappointed that it wasn't represented by a more correct entry.

barrym Unfortunately, incomplete or incorrect programs are infesting
this website, and you are looking at an example from the second
worst offender (Winterberg being the worst). My negative
comments were met with a glib response from Mike, who clearly
knows much more about programming than I do, but much less
about programming to a clearly published specification. The
website masters are letting it through, so it's up to you guys
to submit a more correct entry. I'll give you a good vote, for
whatever it's worth. :-)
