If you bought your copy then I am sure that Cognitive Applications
will upgrade it free of charge (except P&P, I expect).   My own copy
of AlphaPOP works perfectly well under System 7.1.

The best book for use with AlphaPOP is Jonathan Laventhol's
"Programming in POP11".  A full reference is included at the end of
this message.


P.S. Here's the reference.  I rather doubt that it is in print at the
     moment.  However, it is well worth tracking down.  I consider it
     a very good introductory text.

%A Laventhol J.
%T Programming in POP-11
%I Blackwell Scientific Publications Ltd.
%D 1987
%O An introduction to Pop-11, adhering to the AlphaPop subset.
