Well, I'd say: Typical TOS-Look ;-)

Here's an old article from 1996: https://www.stcarchiv.de/ai1996/03/soft ... -photoline

The good old days of Atari vs Amiga :D

How many disks were needed for the source?

I think: just one!
I have here 3 disks (720kB): one with the Atari ST-version, one for the TT and one disk with the 'English Version'. I think the first disk would have been enough for the German version, with additional files for the English version on the other disk, but I can't read the disks anymore.
This is V2.20, with the handbook, from 1996. At the end of the handbook there is a form to report bugs. Fill it in, put it in an an envelope and mail it to the Hubers, or fax it.

I prefer the latest versions!

Guys I started with a cassette to load the program into the 32k of rom and 32k of ram. Colour? Gosh I had an amber screen and that was considered high tech. Now I would be interested in hearing from the developers where they started. What was the hardware that they first developed PL for?

I also think so. if I remember corectly, the first video games I've seen attached to a TV where black and white, and so was the ZX81. I started with a C64, as you might have already guessed.
