16.4 Literature for the TOS operating system

Unfortunately there is no all-encompassing documentation for TOS or operating systems compatible to it, and due to the current market situation one must assume that this will not change in the future.

The list included here makes no claim to completeness; documentation that is only available to registered developers was deliberately not included. Furthermore one should point out that practically all the cited works regarding the current development position (of AES Version 4.x, MiNT, Multi-TOS, MagiC, SpeedoGDOS, NVDI 4.x, etc.) are not only hopelessly outdated, but partly also no longer available.
