"Programming XC on XMOS Devices" book to sell?

Postby aclassifier » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:56 am

Would any of you have the old "Programming XC on XMOS Devices" laying around and not overrun by a car? I'd be willing to pay advance money for it and postage (PayPal or bank transfer).

Programming XC on XMOS Devices, Douglas Watt (2009), see http://www.xmos.com/download/private/Programming-XC-on-XMOS-Devices(X9577A).pdf. ISBN: 978-1-907361-00-5 (PBK) ISBN: 978-1-907361-03-6 Published by XMOS Limited. On the first page it points to other documents as “updated versions of this document”. That’s true and not. It’s still a good read in itself! I also see this downloadable at a slightly different url: http://www.xmos.com/download/private/Programming-XC-on-XMOS-Devices.pdf but I think they are equal since same ISBN.

It's not available at Amazon or eBay as far as I can see.

It's really a good read, I had it printed at the time in 2 pages per A4, double sided.
But it's really missing important improvements that came along with the newer XS2 architecture. A lot of details changed or are not relevant anymore and better done in another way now.

139 pages and something missing! I have tried to fill in some of the holes [1]. There are quite some unknown 'X's.

I also have some seminal occam books, and this would be a nice entry on that shelf. However, xC is a living language that's still in development and I use it every day8-)

[1] XC is C plus X
