9.10 Other FAQ's

This is not the only FAQ, of course. Lots of FAQ's are available either by being posted to newsgroups or by access via FTP.

*German Amiga-FAQ* This is the german translation of the AmigaFAQ you are reading. Newsgroups: de.comp.sys.amiga.misc, zer.z-netz.rechner.amiga.allgemein HTML: `http://www.leo.org/archiv/amiga/misc/amigafaq/' Aminet: `docs/misc/AmigaFAQg.lha' Maintainer: Ignaz Kellerer, kellerer@informatik.tu-muenchen.de

*Amiga related books FAQ* This is a list of books for the Amiga, including short discussions, prices and sources. Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga.misc, comp.sys.amiga.introduction, comp.sys.amiga.programmer (monthly) HTML: `http://eksl-www.cs.umass.edu/~atkin/amiga/books.faq.html' Ftp: rtfm.mit.edu, `pub/usenet/comp.sys.amiga.misc'. Maintainer: Marc Atkin, atkin@cs.umass.edu

*AmiTCP/IP FAQ* This is for users of AmiTCP/IP, a set of programs which allows to include an Amiga into a TCP/IP network. (Most well known nets, Internet for example use TCP/IP.) Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga.misc, comp.sys.amiga.datacomm, comp.sys.amiga.networking (biweekly) Ftp: rtfm.mit.edu, pub/usenet/comp.sys.amiga.networking Maintainer: Neil J. McRae (atcpfaq@domino.demon.co.uk)

*Amiga Networking FAQ* Unlike the AmiTCP/IP FAQ this one wants to cover all aspects of networking, including TCP/IP and Envoy. Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga.datacomm, comp.sys.amiga.hardware Ftp: rtfm.mit.edu, pub/usenet/comp.sys.amiga.networking Maintainer: Richard Norman (norman@afas.msfc.nasa.gov)

*Point Manager FAQ* Networking seems to be quite a problem: This FAQ os for Point Manager, a FidoNet-client (so-called points). Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga.datacomm Ftp: rtfm.mit.edu, pub/usenet/comp.sys.amiga.datacomm Maintainer: Eric Krieger (pm_faq@quasar.hacktic.nl)

*All about FTP* Explains the usage of the file transfer program FTP. See FTP. Newsgroups: comp.sys.amiga.misc (monthly) Ftp: Aminet, info/start Betreuer: Urban Dominik Mueller (umueller@amiga.icu.net.ch)

The Amiga-FAQ archive *********************

The Amiga-FAQ is available in different formats: Ascii format (which is posted to the nets) AmigaGuide format (which is the adequate format on the Amiga) and in dvi format (to be printed). Additionally there is some stuff, that might be useful or interesting, but could not be included into the Amiga-FAQ: txt/amiga.history On the Amiga's history txt/story.txt The Commodore story (or: the Tramiel story ;-) txt/amiga.newsgroups Overview on comp.sys.amiga.* txt/amiga.sites List of FTP sites txt/AmigaOverview.tex A short overview on the Amiga-Soft- and Hardware txt/Hardware.tips For those people who can't live without solder src/JWSplit.c The source of a file splitter src/JWJoin.c The opponent to JWSplit src/addtoc.c Utility to add a toc to texinfo-created docs (this document uses it) programmers/* Some stuff for programmers: pragmas, vararg versions of some tag functions and some amiga.lib functions (HookEntry, DoMethod)

I decided to collect these in the Amiga-FAQ archive. It is called AmigaFAQ.lha and can be found on Aminet, directory `docs/misc'.

Contributions *************

This FAQ can neither get useful nor hit further development without your help. Suggestions, contributions, new answers, critics, anything is rather welcome.

Please note, that very major subjects are absolutely missing yet: Nothing about sound, nothing on graphic cards, no Animation. These are some of the Amiga's best points! But I don't know them ... :-(

So grab your keyboard (Your pencil? Well, if there's no other way...) and send mail to:

Ignaz Kellerer Georg-Habel-Str. 11 81241 Munich (Germany) Tel. (+49) 089 / 885147
