The text file that lists all 1.x samples by name credits Mike Cremer and Kent Sandvik. The sample is in this zip file


under Newton 1.x Sample Code\Communications\IR Remote Sample-2. (Of course, there's a Mac version too.)

Here's a comp.sys.newton.programmer thread where Mike Engber and Kent Sandvik talk about it:

I don't have it - the text file suggests that this version of the sample is from the time of NTK 1.5. Well, I actually have the NTK 1.0.1 demo from an image of the WaiterHelper disk, which was distributed with the book "Programming for the Newton". The image was sent to me by a list member. The demo is identical to the full version, but it does not allow you to change the package name and the packages it produces display a notification when they are activated. But you could hack the packages with a hex editor to disable that. Why do you want version 1.0.1 anyway?
