Use the SUC Magazines Index to search or to list the index of the club
magazines database. The database contains all published issues from
1981 to 2000. The three Software Manuals are also included.
Enter any search item in the input field to search the
database. Do not enter any search item if you want to list the complete
This time you cannot not use more than one search item. If you put
space characters in your search item then all records are searched for
this search item like an exact "phrase". Apostrophes will
be automatically deleted by the program (be sure, the database doesn't
contain any apostrophes). Quotation marks are supported like all other
Use the radio buttons ( Article / Topics ) to specify
which search or list function should be invoked. Each article has a
topic ( e.g. 3.5" MASTER DISKS AND DISK DRIVES ). All available
topics can be searched or listed by selecting the topics radio button.
Each article has a headline which describes globally the contents of
the article. All available articles can be searched or listed by selecting
the article radio button.
There are two selection boxes: Vol./Year and Issue No.
The 'Vol./Year' selection box lets you choose a volume number.
The volume number is a relation to the year in which all issues were
published ( e.g. 1 - 1981, 10 - 1990 ). You can limit your search or
list function by using this selection box and (additional) by using
the 'Issue No.' selection box.
Use SM for a selection of the Software Manuals. SS is
an entry for future use ( SharpSoft User Manuals). The index of these
isn't available this time. I do not have the index data set.
The 'Issue No.' selection box is automatically updated to the
numbers of issues published in that year which you select in the 'Vol./Year'
selection box. Normally there are published 3 issues per year, but in
some cases there are two or four issues available. Please wait for the
completion of the update of the 'Issue No.' selection box after selecting
a value in the 'Vol./Year' selection box, otherwise unpredictable results
Both selection boxes have a selectable item 'All'. This means
that all volumes and issues can be searched or listed. If you choose
'All' in the 'Vol./Year' selection box you cannot choose an issue number.
In this case all issues were processed. But you can limit your search/list
function to one issue only if you choose a year by the 'Vol./Year' selection
box and an issue number by the 'Issue No.' selection box.
Press the 'Go-button' if you have made all your choices. Alternatively
Output Sort order
The results in the output are sorted. The results are sorted
by topics if you selected the topics radio button. If you selected the
article radio button and a volume number (and optional an issue number)
then the output will be sorted by the issue numbers and the page numbers.
In all other cases the output will be sorted by articles.
You can sort each column of any result page by clicking on a column
The available column headers are:
Article ( = the article's headlines)
Vol. ( = Volume/Year ),
No. ( = issue number ),
page(s) ( = page number(s) of that issue ),
Month ( of the publication year ), and
If your search function or list function will give more than 25 results
then the output is paged. In this case a page index is shown at the
top and end of the results listing. The index is numerically and a maximum
of 20 page numbers are shown. A '...' is shown if there are more
pages available. This will be also shown at the beginning of the page
index if you previously selected one at the end of the page index (while
paging around). The meaning is similar to (non existent) previous
/ next buttons.
If you selected the topics radio button then you can click on any of
the listed topics in the result page. The result will be a new result
page which shows all articles for the selected topic. This will not
show very much articles if you have selected a volume ( and optional
an issue ).
Errors may occur if you use the browser's navigate buttons (back/forward).
This problem is known and will be fixed soon.
