little bit of history...
The roots of the program are found in the Amiga scene, in the early nineties
(1991). Back then, it was called Comic Book and the first version
was written using Amiga Basic. Because of the graphical power of AMOS,
still on the Amiga, I rewrote the program. Back in 1994 (or so), when
I switched to the PC platform for development, the program was again rewritten
using Visual PL/I under OS/2 Warp. To reflect the new platform, I changed
the name to Collect. With the arrival of Windows 95 and the dying
of OS/2, a new development environment was needed. Delphi 3 was the answer
to my prayers and (again) the program was rewritten. A few years down
the road, Delphi 7 had arrived. I wasn't too happy anymore with the user
interface, so, another rewrite of the program was needed. I decided to
change the name once more and thus Pete's Collection Kit was born.
The earliest version of PeCo KIT is version 3.00 (dated March 18th, 2005).
Since the last version of Collect was 2.03, I thought it would be nice
to just continue counting.
What it does...
Well, PeCo KIT helps you to keep track of your comic collection. But
if you use the given data entry fields in a clever way, you can also
keep track of other stuff like your CD, DVD or trading card collection.
PeCo KIT can create a list of stuff that you own, but it can also create
a list of stuff that you still need. And because everybody likes to
see what's in his (or hers) collection, a picture of each item can be
How to get it...
As of May 16th 2013, version
3.42 of PeCo KIT has left the testing stage and is ready for
you to download. Please, drop
a line if you have anything to say about
the program. To me, user input is very valuable for it helps me
to make the program even better.
