Numeric Formatting in Suprtool
Tell Us What You Want! We are in the midst of adding a $edit function
to Suprtool that allows you to apply a COBOL-type edit mask to any field.
We have a couple of design questions where we could use feedback. Read
the article and please send us your opinion while we are still working on it.
HP 3000 World Wide Wake
Alan Yeo has set up a web site to informally help
organise a good old fashioned "World
Wide Wake" for the evening of the 31st October to officially see the HP 3000
out. Click the link above to find the wake nearest you and
contact the organizer, or
register a suggested location in your town.
The idea is that someone picks a pub/bar in a particular town, and
anyone within striking distance can make their way there.
This is not an official event, but a way to informally
get together for a drink, a meal, or what ever, in a host of
local locations around the world.
Nothing entered on the page, will be recorded off-line or used for any
type of marketing, and the information will be deleted after 31st
