I have managed to get the Dec 1985 release of ScenicSoft Modula-2 running on UCSD P-System IV on my MC68000 Sage IV system but the only documentation I have is the release notes.

I understand that the compiler is an updated version of Volition Systems Modula-2 compiler. I have the User Manual for that, but I'm having difficulty getting ScenicSoft's menu system to work. Does anybody have any experience with the ScenicSoft system or know where I can get the ScenicSoft Installation Guide, Getting Started notes or User Manual?

Thanks,
Chris

The closest that I have is the manual for the Pecan Power System
Modula-2, which will probably be of little help.

Thank you for your reply - I also have the Pecan manual but no longer have the software. Anyway, I have now managed to successfully compile and run a Modula-2 program. The problem turned out to be that I had a UCSD p-System IV.1 bootfile on the boot floppy instead of the required IV.2 version. Once I fixed that I was able to install the software and run it OK,

Regards,
Chris
