Ref-QL (or the QL Reference List) was sold by WDSoftware and was marketed as simply useful QL references in an Archive file, with search and print programs.

The 1st Edition (March 1985) was said to contain 100+ references, whereas the 2nd edition (September 1985), this had increased to 300+.

According to the Summer Software Survey in QL User (September 1985), this was an index of QL articles which had appeared in the computing press.

The problem with this, was that it was constantly updating - by October 1985, they had released Edition 5 with 900 references and were promising edition 6 with 1100 references - each edition was said to cost £1 more than the last, with an extra 200 references per references. Edition 7 was released in December 1985 and included 1300 useful references, with the price at £9 for a microdrive (or 5.25" disk) version.

We have no more information on this.
