Just a heads up to say that Alyce has been persuaded to republish her API tutorial. It is one of the best resources I ever purchased for Liberty BASIC. We have been loosing content recently with site closures, We have lost vast code repositories from file archive site closures. So my tip to you all, go and get yourself a copy of Alyce's book. You will never regret having it to hand as you grow your API skills.
Hello Rod, I have been trying to contact Alyce by email and forum at www.alycesrestaurant.com, but failed to do so, since I do not receive answer. I live outside the States and I do not have a credit card. So my only option to buy Alyce's book is through Western Union Money Transfer. To do so, I need some details about the person that will collect the money. In this case Alyce's full name as shown in ID, City/State/Province/Country. If somebody can help contacting Alyce, please write to me at my email.
Or perhaps somebody can buy it for me, and later I send the money by Western Unión. I do not hace crédito card. PayPal is not available un the city where I live in Argentina. Regards, -Pablo
I will not share my personal information. I use a vendor for this reason, even though Lulu keeps a portion of the money collected. I am sorry you are having difficulties.
I pay to maintain a website. On my site, I've provided a static copy of the LBPE until other staff members can find a way to host a dynamic copy of that wiki. Most of the API information from the book is available there, as is API information written by others and a whole bunch of great information about all kinds of programming topics. Find it here:
I do not provide individual help. Please post the question from your email here on the forum. I, or one of the great community or staff members will try to help and everybody will benefit from the discussion.

Thank you for preserving that information Alyce. I really miss LBPE as well as the old conforums site (which I used to search extensively for solutions). I found myself referring to those sites a lot in the process of learning LB. I think these forums were actually some of the best selling points on LB for me. I've also made use of your website quite a bit in the past. Your example programs are very useful learning tools. Thank you for being a part of this community and for all the great work you do.
Is it possible to get your book in ASCII or MS Word format? I find PDFs to be cumbersome (my eyes are getting worn out). If not, does your book rely on a lot of images, or is it mostly text? I'm asking because, if it's in single column format and is mostly text, I could just convert it to text and then break it down into chapters for easier reference. I have an LB program that I use to organize that kind of information and it would be great to add your book to it.
I don't use a lot of API, even though I would like to more often, because it's a lot of work going around looking for different references in order to try to figure out how to implement it in LB.
