Fred Fish cd-rom nostalgia #computers

AmigaDOS shell icon A couple of days ago I was helping sorting and cleaning out old electronics from my parents basement.

The one thing I knew I wanted to keep was the Commodore CD-TV that I got in a swap at the end of my "Amiga period".

Along with the machine were 2 cd-roms - one was "The Fred Fish Collection Volume 1.6 February 1993". I had to see if the cd could still be read.

It could! I've put the content of the cd online for fun.

One thing noticed as the filenames were scrolling by was... Perl!

Fred Fish disk 161 has a Perl-interpreter for the Amiga - the date on the file is 1988-10-02, and the binary is a whopping 149 KB.
