Knobby's World 1.2. Get the latest
LOOKOUT FAQ. What to do if LOOKOUT cannot find
the "lrd" or "redir" command, how to copy and paste, etc.
LOOKOUT for C++--, a programming environment
for C++ programming. It's about 8 megabytes download, about 20 megabytes
installed. Version 1.3 comes on the new CD-ROM (the CD-ROM with the book is
an older version) and is installed on the Lehigh LANs.
LOOKOUT library for Borland C++. This is a zip
file containing lookout.lib, compiled to link with Borland C++, plus the
header files, plus most of the source code associated with the book, using
the .cpp extension (instead of .cc), which Borland C++ prefers. If you
want to use Borland C++ instead of LOOKOUT (really?), but need to use the
LOOKUT library described in The Universal Machine, then download
this file, then unzip it.
