Did anyone get back to you on this?

Dear all,

last time I looked at the internals (20 years ago) the parts I was interested in were all written in BOOT. I wrote all my tentative code in BOOT and patched one function (possibly coerceInteractive) to accept it. I have several hundred lines of BOOT code that may be of interest to people.

I can’t remember exactly how one compiles BOOT and adds it into the interpreter’s path Worse, I can’t remember BOOT’s syntax. I had a photocopy of the BOOT programming guide, but, sadly, can’t find it.

Is there any online documentation on hacking the Axiom interpreter? Also, if anyone has a scan of the BOOT document, please can you let me get hold of it somehow?

Quick Bio: I was a student of James Davenport’s in the late 90s working on coercion, Axiom’s type system and Universal Algebra. Since then I’ve not been in academia.
