(Speaking of) Source Code
« on: December 22, 2017, 08:27:32 AM »
Does anyone happen to know what programming language the old DOS versions of DesignCad were written in?
I think it would be so fun to be able to browse the original source code for DesignCad from back in the day.
Just curious.

Apparently original versions were programmed in Pascal by a Robert Webster way back in hbistory some 25 years ago.
