Where's the Editor?
    I like your magazine a lot, except for one thing, your BASIC Editor II. Why don't you print it in each issue like you do the M/L Editor? It would make it so much easier for people just starting with your magazine. The way it is now, you have to order the back issue. You put which issue to order, but not where to order it from or how much it is.
    So, could you please tell me how much it is and where to order back issues from?

We print M/L Editor in each issue because the M/L Editor data listings can not be typed any other way (well, if you really knew what you were doing, you could come up with a BASIC subroutine to read the data to the disk, but it'd be much easier to use the M/L Editor), whereas BASIC programs may be typed in without the use of the BASIC Editor II, even though we don't recommend that you try it, since the possibilities for error are too great. In any case, you'll be happy to know that the BASIC Editor II will be reprinted in next month's ANALOG, so there's no need for you to order a back issue. If you'd still like to order a back issue, however, you may do so by writing to ANALOG Computing, P.O. Box 16927, N. Hollywood, CA 91615. The price for each back issue is $4. Also, you may wish to note that Issues 30 to 40 and Issues 44 to 61 are still available. Limited quantities of earlier issues are also in stock, and that information will be provided as soon as we get a chance to update our inventory list.
