AmigaNews Tech (ANT) was a companion magazine to the French Commodore Revue. ANT targetted developers with programming explanations and examples in various programming languages. I still remember learning about overlays at 16... an experience that changed my life . It seems that 36 instances of ANT (1, 2) appeared in total. I (re)implemented below some of the C programs found in ANT, following Daff's republication of these magazines .
