Subject: Language Learning: Ceaser 3.0 Latin Software

Anyone previously interested in The Caesar Machine 2.0
(freeware Latin hypertext reader for De Bello Gallico, Bk. I
- click on a word to get an English definition) might also be 
interested in The Caesar Machine 3.0, which covers De Bello
Gallico, Bks. II - V. Like version 2.0, this teaching machine
is written in Visual Basic and operates under Windows -- you
just mouse-click on a word in the text and the dictionary entry 
appears in English below the text. This also is freeware, 
downloads as a zip file = 2 Mb, runs under Windows
95/98/NT, and is available at:

http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/9963

The Caesar Machines incorporate search routines for the
body of the text and the body of the dictionary, as well as for
dictionary entries. Version 2.0 and the original Caesar
Machine (for DOS, also runs under Windows) are still
available at the same place.
