When GSoft BASIC was first released by The Byte Works, Mike Westerfield (of The Byte Works) contracted Eric Shepherd to adapt his book “Toolbox Programming in C” for GSoft BASIC. Work proceeded apace for a while, but stalled when issues were run into getting the code samples for chapter 7 (on printing) adapted. When it became clear that the problems would not be resolved easily, work on the book halted completely.

Permission has been received from The Byte Works to release the six chapters that were completed, along with the corresponding code samples, as freeware. They’re now available from the Syndicomm web site.
