As far as I know, there's the book, Applied Crypto, and the source code on disk.
Are you referring to the C code within the same book, the disk, or a book of
source code with the stuff in the disk (which contains more than the main book)?

It matters to me, because though I have the fat book, I have yet to find the
energy to OCR the source code. As I'm in India, I can't get the disk. If the
contents of the disk are printed in a separate book, I could get *that*.

The disk contains code described, but not presented in the book, including 
DSA, Diffie-Hellman, etc.
