Blast from the Past: Software Toolsworks

I came across an old company I bought products from as a teenager, long long ago: The Software Toolworks. (Software Toolworks )

The founder is Walt Bilofsky. (

I enjoyed his software on Heath-Zenith computers "back in the day" (between 1981-1985). I had a Z-100 computer (5mhz 8085/8088 processors wth 128k of memory. Yeah, "k").

I learned C using Walt's compiler, C/80. I seem to remember Lisp/80 as well. Later, I moved my code over to Z-DOS (Zenith branded MSDOS) and DeSmet C/88. But that's another story.

All I want to say is, "Thanks Walt!"
