Source code for AWDWR (first edition)

I’m looking for the source code of AWDWR, first edition.

The PragProg site has the second edition now and I’m not able to find
the sources for the first edition anymore.

Anybody knows where I can find them?

Thanks
AA

You really should not use that book unless you plan on only using rails
1.1 and not 1.2 or 2.0. It is not current now, and will be way out of
date very soon when rails 2.0 comes out. Put that in the recycle bin and
get the second edition.

I can confirm William P.'s comment: many, many things, and
important ones, changed between the first and second edition. I had
read the 2nd edition, and then someone gave me a copy of the 1st
edition PDF which I perused; it could steer you in completely the
wrong direction!).

Agile Web D. with Rails is, as far as I can tell, by far the
best and most complete course of information about Rails available. I
have read others and, in my opinion, none comes close. If you don’t
want to pay for the hard copy, get the PDF of the second edition from
PragProg.

Thanks to everybody. Shame on me for letting the book get some dust on
a shelf for more than 1 year.

Amen. A week or so ago, someone posted some problems following the
1st ed, and I counseled him to update.

I’ve got both, but the only time I find the 1st edition helpful is
when I have to do maintenance work on a site which has not been
upgraded to 1.2+
