I have just recived an e-mail from dr. holt of holt software. I asked him about the futtuer of turing and if holt software is going out of business or not. Here is his reply:

Dr. Holt wrote:

Yes, the company Holt Software has pretty much run out of gas.

We have just posted a free copy of PC Turing on the company website
http://www.holtsoft.com/

We'll investeigate putting up a Ready To Program (Java) freeby.

We'll investigate putting various books published by the company on the
web for free as well.


You can get a copy of the newest version of Turing for free now! You can find it here:
http://www.holtsoft.com/Turing%204.1.1a.zip

This aperars to be version 4.1.1a witch is newer then even i have. This is both good and bad news to the turing comunity as it is now free but it is also no longer in development.

UPDATE: File was moved to http://www.holtsoft.com/Turing%204.1.1.zip

Well done.

we should ask them for the source so we could develop turing in an open environment.

The folks working on an open implementation are probably better off not being biased by legacy implementation decisions. Or, in other words, sometimes it's best to start with a (relatively) clean slate.

Well the development of turing and openT can be independent. Also, creating a compiler is not easy. That being said, the people working on openT can look at the turing implementation for ideas since many aspects of compiler construction are pretty standard.

Wow, this surely comes as a surprise. Congratulations on finally getting something done about the dead silence from HoltSoft, it's not a bad way for them to go down. Perhaps there is some hope for Turing after all. Wink

Hmm, they also lifted the restriction on commercial use, I suppose they really are done then. This'll make a nice upgrade to my version (I've still got 4.0.3)

Nobody in their right mind would use Turing in a commercial project.

Very Happy you underestimate me sir, for I am most certainly not in my right mind.

Although you're right of course, it's really far too slow, and I don't like the look of the icon.
