Starways was created in 1997, written in Borland C++ 3.1 for DOS (although its calculation engine is highly optimized, and written in i80387+ assembly language), and in italian. In September 1998 it was appreciated and published in the "software corner" of an italian astronomy magazine (Nuovo Orione), and well, shortly after, some copies of its italian version were even sold, for the actual equivalent of about 12 US$. In February 2003, it was partly translated to english (program's text strings only, comments in the code still in italian). The source code is provided in the program's archive (starways.cpp is main source, assembly.h being a necessary header file). Starways has brief online instructions, and although it may take some practice, it might be considerably intuitive to use; because of this, and because I have actually no time to write an user guide in english, the online help is all you have. But really, it might be sufficient.
