Old Aristar message board now as a help file

The old Aristar Dialect forum has been converted to a Windows .chm compressed help file. This makes it much easier to search the old forum. The contents is almost identical to that of the raw archive, only redundant header and footer data has been removed.
A recommended download!

CVS cleaned up

The Dialect CVS has been cleaned up. Two superfluous directories ([Sourceforge] / dialect / Qwindow and ([Sourceforge] / dialect / dialect / Qwindow) have been removed. This should do away the problems some people had with checking out the Dialect CVS.

Old Aristar Dialect messageboard available for download

A raw archived version of the no longer available Aristar Dialect messageboard (formerly found at www.aristar.com/wwwboard/wwwboard.html) is now available for download. Please notice some (older) messages may be missing from this archive!

The old message board contained lots and lots of queastions, answers and code snippets. It still is indispensable to any Dialect programmer.
