Yes, PDF conversion doesn't retain line numbering unfortunately.

Okay.  I've included the current cover and PDF file.

I'll add some of your comments to the back page later on when people have had a good look at the book.

The price is now just over £27 - unfortunately the pictures will be in black and white (because the layout chosen doesn't allow colour printing), although the download version should be in colour...

To make the sample code stand out a bit more, I'll be putting it in a box :

Well done. Excellent work.   

Now for Volume II.
Thanks!  There wont be a Volume 2 - of anything - for a while... I really should get on with my game :)

However, one obvious idea would be DDGui...

By the way, I do hope people wont mind me quoting them for the back page of the cover =D

The digital version is around £3.50 or so...

I've made the book available now (http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/glbasic-programmers-reference-guide/12933525)

There should be a download version available for £3-odd, whilst the book is £27.96

455 pages, black and white pictures unfortunately, due to the page size not allowing colour for some reason  :blink:

So, if anyone has found anything thats incorrect, now is the time to let me know :)

I do mention that LET is outdated in the Command Reference section.  It is also somewhat mentioned in the first tutorial too.

However, no matter how outdated the command is, its still a valid one :)

Page 15 of the GLBPRG has some graphics missing, representing the masking of sprites.

Oh and the Lulu Cybermonday code is "CYBER305"

Glad you like it!

I couldn't find anything wrong with the sprite pictures...   Perhaps you have a (rare) early copy!
