"Crash Course" Correction

Send Article to a Friend

"Crash Course" Correction -- In my article in the Jun-93 MacUser, a mistake was made in copy editing that introduced a serious error. For the non-programmer, MacsBug has three, maybe four important commands. They are es or escape to shell (which is the Finder), rs or restart, g or continue where you left off, and ? or help. Unfortunately the g command was turned into "Go" in the article, and MacsBug just spits at you if you give that as a command. My apologies if this mistake caused trouble. MacsBug is available on <ftp.apple.com> as:

/dts/mac/tools/macsbug/macsbug-6-2-2.hqx

Those of you using the Centris 610 and low-end 650 with the 68LC040 chip, need a special version of MacsBug that is available as:

/dts/mac/tools/macsbug/macsbug-68040lc.hqx
