I just installed Slack8 on my sytem and had deleted some files I thought I could download again. Unfortunately the Programmers Vault dissolved into Dr.Dobbs site not to be found again. I cant get any response to my emails so I was hoping some one here knew where I could find a mirrior of the site or had wgetted it.

I am looking for the how to program pong file mostly. It had a great tutorial on how to use the grabber utility to store graphics to a data file and use it as a sprite which could be used for a bat or ball in the game. I would be interested in any related files or info. Thankyou.

Mr Foot's pong tutorial is on this page.


The one I am looking for was on the http://www.chesworth.com/pv url
but it got eaten by Dr. Dobbs. It was by a guy with a arab name and written with the grammar of someone to whom the English language is not natural. That might be why I liked it. I got my education in Oklahoma so English is not my native tongue either.

I thought it would nice to compare the tutorials and styles. Thanks for the reply.
