Also for the record - Amazon UK are listing it as "Limited Availability or
Out of print". No hits on Oh well, it was worth a shot. I
might try Waterstones (big UK bookstore chain) tomorrow.

I do, however, have a few Texas Instruments GPIB interface ICs (SN75160BN and
SN75161BN) in my junkbox. The GPIB connectors are standard anyway - 24-way
Centronics-style IIRC.
