Link to "Squeak by Example" is broken

LEnglish
The link found at https://squeak.org/documentation/ for Squeak by Example is actually to a domain that is currently for sale.

IOW, there’s no obvious way to get to the book from the main squeak website.

There is a wiki page which has a link to the repository and a PDF

Thanks. I wasn’t reporting that I couldn’t find the text, but that it is’t linked to appropriately. It was a heads up the community about a problem.

If you want something to be useful to newbies, you gotta provide newbie links, and not assume that everyone knows how to google effectively.

Even the link you give is to a rather ugly looking draft. The original link was to the printer-ready PDF that could be used to make a reasonably professional looking book

Thanks Lawson for reporting this error. I have forwarded it to the page
admins.

The book itself is quite dated now after 11 years :-(. The online Help
in Squeak 5.2 is really handy and kept current.

For those who still prefer PDFs (e-reader, archival print, ...), many
public repositories maintain a copy. E.g.

     https://hal.inria.fr/inria-00441576v1
