ML1 compiler? (Miscellaneous)

Does anybody know what happened to the ML1 compiler or its author Steven D. Nichols? I'm getting "Site No Longer in Service".

I found my latest download on ye olde external hard drive: ML1.ZIP

I haven't tested it, but I wonder if it's latest (older? newer?) than yours, rr. But anyways, something is better than nothing! Maybe it should be mirrored to iBiblio (but dunno license, too lazy to check right now, heh).

EDIT: Here's what mine contains (sounds older than yours, but who knows):

And here is Bob!

I've been in contact with Dave Jaffe, and he's corrected the Forth summary page.

But I'll stick around as this forum looks interesting...:-)

From the recent WHOIS record updates - it looks like the site has just been renewed (moved?):

I was afraid of that, but the Forth summary page lumped the Wikipedia article (re: Bob's) in with Steve's, and having not actually used either tool, I wasn't honestly sure. Oh well.

Ok I've heard back from Bob. Firstly my apologies to Bob as I hadn't picked up that there was some confusion already on this thread between the ML/1 (Macro Language/One) and the ML1 compiler which existed at http://www.ml1compiler.org/

Bob has advised that they are entirely completely different things

Bob only maintains the official ML/1 (Macro Language/One) website which can be found at http://www.ml1.org.uk/

Archives of the http://www.ml1compiler.org/ (off-line at the time of writing) can be accessed via the following link: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.ml1compiler.org/

Sadly however it doesn't appear (from a very quick check) that any of the files are downloadable via archive.org's caches. Worth checking further.

As above I would recommend checking out Bob's excellent TAVI website:
http://www.tavi.co.uk/ps2pages/ (Bob's PS/2 + DOS pages)

The svpal.org email for Steve failed, and since ml1compiler.org is a bogus shell site, I don't think that email would work either. I guess SDN just disappeared (hopefully only temporarily). :-( I guess I could try plugging in that dumb (converted) external HD to find the archive, but it's yet another thing to mirror, sheesh, and I don't even grok it (yet)! ;-)

Hi,
I realized Bob was UK based.... long story short I have dropped him an email (via another address) with a link to this forum will let you know the outcome.

Well, another search did find this:

http://www.forth.org/svfig/kk/01-2008.html

... which points to these:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ml1
http://www.forth.org/svfig/kk/ml1smry.html

... and Wikipedia points here:

http://www.ml1.org.uk/

And the summary page gives two different emails (one obviously defunct, one may? still work). Shall we try contacting him and/or Bob Eager?

No, it's been gone for quite a long time, no idea why. I've searched before, just did yet another quick search, nothing turns up. Very frustrating when things disappear with no known mirror. :-(

P.S. I might have a copy of it on my older HD, but I haven't checked lately.
