SOFTWARE LIBRARY

Below is a list of programs that are now available from the INMC Software Library. Copies cost 8p per sheet, and the number of sheets for each program is given alongside its description. Please also enclose postage, as detailed on the enclosed order form.

For a variety of reasons, we have decided to remove the previous list of 12 programs from the library, and for simplicity, this list starts at number 20. Therefore, please do not write and ask us about numbers 1 to 19, they don’t exist.
