SpellDB 1.0 Beta 1

I have programmed a little Spellfire database-utility for unix-based machines and the X-Window-System. The source is included in the
distribution, so that everyone can compile it on his/her favourite workstation.

It would be nice if you could set a link to the package which can be downloaded at


Can someone please post this message to alt.(card?)games.spellfire? I can't get this group on my university and even DejaNews doesn't have it. :(



p.s. Here is the readme-file for the package:


            SpellDB 1.0 BETA 1

    Copyright (c) 1998 Michael Kleinhenz <kleinhen@unix-ag.uni-kl.de>

This is the first beta release of the Spellfire database tool for unix-based machines. It was written on 4 days in january 1998 using the help from various people:
Patrick "The seven tales of scanf" Koppen
Nils "Fun with pointers" Magnus
Oliver "No Problem!" Zendel

Included in the distribution is a database with full descriptions of the following Spellfire sets:

    1st Edition
    2nd Edition
    3rd Edition
    4th Edition
    1st Edition Chase plus all 1st dition Photo-Cards
    Dragonlance including Chases
    Forgotten Realms including Chases
    Artifacts including Chases
    Powers including Chases
    Underdark including Chases
    Runes and Ruins including Chases
    Birthright including Chases
    Draconomicon including Chases
    Night Stalkers including Chases
    (coming soon) Dungeons! including Chases

The main goal for this project was the need for a simple spellfire database tool running unter Linux. I recently used Derek Maxey's spellfire tool for windows and wanted something more flexible running under my favorite system. The program runs under the terms of the GNU General Public License. Therefore, the full source is included in the package. Feel free to modify it to fit your needs but you should consider sending me your patches and requests for feature to include it in later versions.
