    * Subj : The MakeNl makefile for Amiga -- yes, it still exists! ============================================================================= @MSGID: 2:203/2 547a644a
    Just out of curiosity:

    1. Why is not the Amiga version of MakeNl supported any more? I guess the answer to that is that all those @amiganet nodes does not care about any Makenl?

    2. Just the same, Johan Billing and I spent a lot of time, ten years ago, making our common MakeNl project compile on an Amiga using SAS. But the makefile for it is no longer present among all the other makefiles.

    So, can "all" of you running an FTN node on an Amiga please tell me if Johan and I spent all that effort in vain, or are there really any proper Amiga systems out there?

    If you're interested, I can take it upon me to maintain the Amiga version of MakeNl. If not, why don't you simply close down your precious @amiganet? ;)

    I care about makenl. But I'm using the linux version to generate the AmigaNet nodelist.

    2. Just the same, Johan Billing and I spent a lot of time, ten years
    ago, making our common MakeNl project compile on an Amiga using SAS.

    I was not aware of that. At that time I was using nlmake on windows to generate the list.

    But the makefile for it is no longer present among all the other makefiles.

    So, can "all" of you running an FTN node on an Amiga please tell me if Johan and I spent all that effort in vain, or are there really any
    proper Amiga systems out there?

    There are a few nodes that run on an Amiga (afaik). I'm not aware of any of them using makenl to generate segments. They are very small segments so they are easally maintained with a text editor.

    If you're interested, I can take it upon me to maintain the Amiga
    version of MakeNl.

    I'll forward it to AmigaNet, but I don't think there will be much interest.

    If not, why don't you simply close down your precious @amiganet? ;)

    Because we are not using MakeNL on the Amiga, we should close down AmigaNet? Strange suggestion! ;)

    Bye, Wilfred.
