Chris Adams has sent me an updated version 2.2 of his QL World Index software, which now covers every published issue of QL User until it merged with QL World in March 1986, and all issues of QL World until it ceased publication in May 1994.

Consisting of some 4,700 entries in total, the index is Archive-based like its predecessor. It works with both standard Archive and Xchange Archive, although the size of the database means a minimum of 320K RAM to work on a QL. The database is in two halves, due to its sheer size.

The index is run using an Archive program in the usual way and the database has simple search facilities. This makes it very useful if you wish to search for a program review, or information about a piece of hardware, or simply an old listing published in one of the magazines.

For those who prefer not to use Archive, I have exported the database as a plain text file, viewable in most plain text editors and viewers. This is available from the same page.
