Ewen Wannop has released updates to his excellent SNAP NNTP client and Chewbagger low-level file editor applications for the Apple IIGS. Both releases are bug fixes, but a few welcome new features have been added.


  • Optionally display the ASCII field with the high bits cleared.
  • Compare two files for differences. The files are displayed in a ‘split’ window, and on opening, the first difference is found and selected. You can then work through the two files, finding further differences, and setting an ‘offset’ between the displays if necessary.


  • You can now optionally choose to read New messages first.

You can get these updates as well as all of Ewen’s fine programs from http://www.wannop.info/speccie/Site/Speccies_Home_Pages.html
