Gilsoft PAW/Quill

There is an interesting site about these 80's 8-bit creators with some recent and interesting articles, including a new interview with one of the Gilsoft authors, Tim Gilberts.

There's also an article about the release of a new version of Quill (with a 4 word parser) for the c64 after 31 years!!

Check out the several pages concerning these utilities and a resurgence of interest in them which is maintained at:

Using The Quill was loads of fun back in the day - on my dear old ZX Spectrum.
