3 years ago I volunteered to create a new edition of Ethan Winer’s 1990s BASIC programming book using LibreOffice (@libreoffice). Over the span of a year, with Ethan’s editorial input, I rebuilt the book layout from TXT sources in #LibreOffice , and recreated all diagrams from scratch using #FreeDOS, #InkScape and #GIMP. It turned out great!
@ellabellafull We're glad to hear that LibreOffice was useful 🥰
I was able to provide Ethan with all open document format originals (like ODT) so everyone can access and share the body of work.
There's a scan of the old paper book available at archive.org but it's rights managed through the lending mechanism.
