Software Description

SuperPaint was a graphics program capable of both bitmap painting and vector drawing simultaneously. It was originally written by William Snider, published by Silicon Beach Software and originally released in 1986 for the Apple Macintosh. William Snider wrote and designed the program from his house on the Apple Lisa. Because there was no commercially available C compiler for the Mac at the time SuperPaint was ready to be compiled, it was done at the San Diego Super Computing Center.
