Original Sinclair QL boxed Microdrive cartridge.

Title: Shrub Databank and Planner

Estimated Rarity (1 - 10): 10

Publisher/Author: Superplant/Toby Hodd

Original Media Name: superplant, superoct86, superoct86

Notes: Very basic cover. The Shrub RTM (Run Time Module for Psion Archive) is the main cartridge which is used in mdv1_. Cartridges containing a database (_dbf file) are inserted into mdv2_ - e.g. the cartridge labelled SUPERPLANT that contains shrub_dbf, which would have come with this package. I also have another also labelled SUPERPLANT and containing a Fruit_dbf. The fruit cartridge has the same cartridge name and also contains a shrub part 1 document, so perhaps it was supplied at the same time, as an added extra. My fruit_dbf cartridge has severe corruption affecting every file. There is no printed manual, but I assume the screen menu and _doc files provided enough guidance.
