A pre-release version of the Developer's Kit was exhibited and demonstrated at the Comdex trade show on October 21-25 in Las Vegas. The Developer's Kit is also available to selected software developers interested in creating new of porting existing applications onto the powerful, low-cost Atari TT030 personal workstation. The ASV Developer's Kit contains a rich set of developer's tools conforming to a wide range of industry standards based on Atari's implementation of UNIX System V Release 4.0 for the Motorola 68000 series processors and Atari's workstation graphical user interface. The interface is based on the hardware- and operating system-independent XWindow system standard and the Open Systems Foundation (OSF)/Motif style. Thus, ASV applications take on a sculptured three-dimensional Presentation Manager-like appearance. The Atari Style Guide is an enhancement to the Motif style that sets standards for consistency among ASV applications. "The tools that comprise this developer's kit will help key software vendors to efficiently port their applications to ASV and take advantage of the most cost-effective UNIX workstation platform, our TT030," said Sam Tramiel, Atari Corporation CEO. "We're excited about the value that these applications will add to the TT030 and about providing the UNIX workstation market with a low-cost, high powered platform." The Developer's Kit has three main tool groups (core tools, graphic user interface tools, and language compilers and debuggers) and one group of tools for networking services. The core tools include: AT&T System V Release 4.0, BSD and XENIX Convergence, Virtual File Systems, Virtual Memory Management, User-Controlled Process Scheduler, Device Driver Interface/Device Kernel Interface, Internation alization, and Extensible Linking Format (ELF). The Graphic User Interface tools include X Window System Release 11.4, Motif User Interface, XFaceMaker2, and the WISh2 Desktop Manager. ASV application designers can quickly create a Motif-compliant interface by using XFaceMaker2 to paint an application screen from a palette of Motif objects such as labels, push buttons, scroll bars, and message boxes. With FACE, a built-in C-like programming l anguage, the designer can easily mold the behavior of the interface. The programming tools include the efficient GNU C and C++ compilers and the GNU gdb debugger as well as the AT&T System V sdb debugger. The C compiler is fully compatible with the System V ELF object format and with the ANSI C Issue 5 extensions. The tools and styles in the ASV kit assures the developer of compatibility, portability, and inter- operability with other workstation vendors conforming to an open systems architecture and such industry standards as POSIX, X/Open, XPG3, FIPS, NFS, X Window System, and Motif. The networking package adds the Network File System (NFS), Remote File Sharing (RFS), TCP/IP (the DARPA protocols) and BSD Sockets. The Atari System V Developer's Kit will be available in general release form in the first quarter of 1992. Atari Computer Corporation is dedicated to providing its customers with the highest quality, most powerful, and most reliable computing platforms and the best dollar-for-dollar computing value availa ble anywhere.

These cards will be manufactured on | a limited custom order basis only. Orders will be processed in batches | of 50 units at a time. | | Because there are several configurations of ATARI 68000 and 68030 | machines, LEXICOR can not afford to simply mass produce these cards and | hope they might sell. Therefore, the boards will be manufactured on a | limited custom production basis. This means that if you are on the | waiting list (First come, First served) and your number comes up, you | will be called. If you place an order and pre-pay for your card you | will be assured of receiving either the card or a full refund. | | The delivery time is expected to be 37 days from the time the group of | 50 boards is ordered, which will be done upon receiving full payment for | the 50th unit in that group of 50. Each person in a custom group will | receive a postcard acknowledging their purchase and listing the expected | delivery date. | | If a customer places an order and payment in full is NOT received in 7 | days, that customer will be dropped from the list and replaced by the | next customer in line. If at any time a customer who has paid for a | card wishes to withdraw, they will be removed from the list and receive | a full refund, no questions asked. Their name will not be placed back | on the list unless they request it, and again submit full payment. | | Because of the very slow ATARI market at this time this is the only way | LEXICOR can make the 24-Bit card available. LEXICOR has spent an | enormous amount of time, effort and money developing the Phase-4 and 24- | BIT products. Now it is time for ATARI users to join with LEXICOR to | provide the Hardware tools everyone encouraged LEXICOR to develop. | | It is worth noting here that ATARI Corporation has agreed to set a 24 | bit standard and produce a VDI driver for the LEXICOR 24-BIT card. | LEXICOR can't make any promises for ATARI, however we assure our | customers that all LEXICOR software will run on LEXICOR hardware and | that we will write a VDI driver as soon as time and demand permits. | | It is also worth mentioning that even well written current VDI complient | software may not run on ANY 24bit card because the author would have had | no way of knowing about the configuration of a given 24-BIT environment. | | 24-BIT CARD SPECIFICATIONS | | Resolution: 512 x 512 | | True color un-palleted system | | Will drive multi-sync and ATARI 1224 Color monitor in Video Mode. | | (A more detailed hardware specification list will be posted by Nov. | 20th.) | | Article #277 (376 is last): >Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.news From: aa384@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (Doug Wokoun) Subject: ST Report Confidential (November 22, 1991) Posted-By: xx004 (aa400 - John J.

MIGRAPH ANNOUNCES INTELLIGENT OPTICAL CHARACTER | --------------- RECOGNITION APPLICATION FOR ATARI SYSTEMS | | | | "Since the release of the Migraph Hand Scanner, we have been searching | for an OCR Solution that would meet Migraph's high quality and | performance standards", state Migraph president Kevin Mitchell. "Migraph | OCR is the result of a joint development effort between Migraph and a top | developer of OCR software on UNIX based systems. The combination of the | OCR engine and Migraph's interface provides a powerful, yet easy to use | program." | | "Perhaps a better indication of our commitment to the ST market can be | measured by the emergence of Migraph OCR, The Omnifont based OCR product. | You will not find any of the leading PC Software giants rushing to spend | thousands of dollars, and several man-years to port a $500 OCR package to | the Atari. Nor has any developer for the ST made the large upfront cash | investment necessary to bring Omnifont technology to the ST. | | Well, just like you, we at Migraph got tired of waiting. So we forged | a strategic alliance with an OCR Omnifont engine developer. Together, we | are bringing their mature UNIX OCR engine coupled with our intuitive | interface to the ST market. The cost to Migraph has been substantial. We | have focused our complete financial and manpower resources on this | project. We've done this knowing that your satisfaction and word of mouth | recommendation would generate years of sales as we continue to support and | improve the product." | | Optical Character Recognition is the process of using software to | recognize text characters that have been scanned into the computer. The | end result is an ASCII file which can be loaded into a word processor or | desktop publishing programs. | | OMNIFONT TECHNOLOGY | | Migraph OCR uses Omnifont Technology, widely recognized as the leading | technology for OCR products. Omnifont technology enables the program to | recognize characters based on mathematical definitions rather than a set | pattern. This greatly increases the speed of the application as well as | its accuracy. | | "Having the Omnifont engine makes this a quality product. Adding | 'Intelligence' makes it a superior product" states Kevin Mitchell. | "Trainable OCR programs have the capacity to learn new symbols aided by | the user. Migraph OCR uses lexicons and linguistic dictionaries to help | recognize characters, so that fewer characters are presented for | identification by the user. The end result is quicker and better | character recognition and a more satisfied user." | | Migraph OCR includes these additional features: | | = Directly supports the Migraph and Golden Image Hand Scanners | | = Loads IMG and TIFF files | | = Defines text and graphic areas; saves out text as ASCII files and | saves graphics in TIFF or IMG format. | | = Includes four different linguistic databases: English, French, | German and Dutch. | | = Allows the user to create dictionaries for multipage documents that | have the same type of characters (mathematical, Greek, etc.) | | = Easy to use interface. | | REQUIREMENTS | | Migraph OCR will run on any Atari ST, Mega, STe or TT system with 2mb ram | and a hard disk drive. | | AVAILABILITY | | Migraph OCR will be available this December through normal distribution | channels as well as direct from Migraph. The suggested retail price is | $299.00 | | For additional Information: | | MIGRAPH INC. | 200 South 333rd Street | Suite 220 | Federal Way, WA 98003 | 1-206-838-4637 voice | 1-206-838-4702 Fax | | | | | | | - Girard, OH DR BOB'S SCANLITE! HERE!! | ---------- | | | New From Dr. Bobware | Dr. Bob's | S C A N L I T E | | Scan and Save software that directly supports many hand scanners | available for the ST/TT. GeniScan/ST (tm), Migraph (tm), DAATAscan (tm) | and the Golden Image (tm) hand scanners are currently supported with | plans to add to that list as the need arises. | | ScanLite requires less than 20k of memory making it an excellent choice | for systems without megs and megs of memory. ScanLite is a superb choice | for those who like to scan large images while at the same time being | able to keep their favorite system enhancements installed. ScanLite is | great too for large systems when all you want is a quick, no-hassles | scan & save. | | View as You Scan in all ST and TT resolutions. Easy to use dialog for | desired scan length in either inches or centimeters. An adjustable time- | out feature that's compatible and convenient across the accelerator | board spectrum. No more drumming your fingers on the desk while you wait | for a timeout. No more timeout before you can get situated for an ideal | scan. | | ScanLite saves scans as .IMG files in either super-compact or 'uncom- | pressed' format for maximum compatibility across system platforms. | | ScanLite CAN RUN AS A PROGRAM OR AN ACCESSORY! For accessory running, | ScanLite has a fully configurable memory reserve feature which allows | scanning within programs that take all of system memory space for | themselves (like PageStream). Or, should you choose to run as an | accessory with no memory reserve feature, ScanLite will take only 20K of | memory space until you call it up. It will then use what's available | from the system, giving that memory back when it's done! | | When ScanLite is installed as an accessory, it's fully loaded with the | ability to communicate with other programs running under GEM! This | enables you scan directly into any program that's designed to "talk" to | ScanLite! We are currently discussing ScanLite compatibility with | several other ST/TT software publishers so if you'd like to be able to | scan directly into your favorite program, give the publisher a call and | ask if they are ScanLite ready! | | ScanLite currently has the ability to directly interface with the | COALESCE merging software that comes with THE TRAY from WizWorks! Scan | directly into COALESCE for easy picture perfect full page scans with | your existing DAATAscan (tm), GeniScan/ST (tm), Golden Image (tm) or | Migraph (tm) hand scanner. | | ScanLite is available for only $20 from...... | | WizWorks! | Post Office Box 45 | Girard, OH 44420 | (216) 539-5623 | MasterCard/VISA accepted | (3%) Shipping only $1.00 additional! | | | | - GIRARD, OH DR. WIZWORKS STRIKES AGAIN!!! | ---------- | | | New From Dr. WizWorks! | THE TRAY (tm)! | FULL PAGE SCANS USING YOUR EXISTING HAND SCANNER! | | THE TRAY is the ultimate hand scanner guide measuring 20 inches long by | 12 inches wide to easily accomodate US letter, US legal, and Euro A4 | paper sizes. It's manufactured with strict tolerances and has an at- | tached clear vinyl overlay to hold your page rock-steady for accurate | scanning. | | Just place your hand scanner into the cradle and scan both halves of a | page. Use the included ST/TT COALESCE software written by Chet Walters | to merge the two images together into a full page! The COALESCE software | can print the freshly merged image to HP DeskJet, HP LaserJet or Atari | SLM laser printers with a multiple function for fast "photocopies" or, | you can elect to save the full page as an .IMG file for use with any | software you like. COALESCE can also re-load these full page .IMG files | (or any .IMG for that matter) for quick re- printing anytime. | | COALESCE is also specially designed to directly interface with Dr. Bob's | ScanLite so if you're a Scan Lite owner, you can scan and save directly | from within COALESCE! | | THE TRAY gives you a steady helping hand to straghten out any scanning | task and fits most hand scanner body styles available for the ST/TT line | of computers. THE TRAY is a trademark of the LYRA Group and comes with | the ready to run COALESCE merging software for all ST/TT computers. The | THE TRAY fits GeniScan/ST (tm), Golden Image (tm), Migraph (tm), | DAATAscan (tm) and most other scanner bodies available for the ST/TT. | | Available for only $69.95 .....
