RiscLua is a port of the Lua programming language to RISC OS.
Armbob is a small object-oriented language with a syntax resembling
C++, derived from Bob 1.5 by David Betz, adapted for use with RISC OS,
with his permission.
Multisave lets you specify a collection of directories, so
that dragging a selection of files to Multisave's iconbar
icon will save each file to each directory.
Brian Scattergood first ported Gofer, copyright of Mark P Jones,
to the Archimedes in 1991. I wrote a front end for it, that
later evolved into the stick program, for use in a classroom
of Archimedes. Gofer (GOod For Equational Reasoning) is a pure
lazy functional programming language, with type classes.
This package, intended primarily for educational purposes, includes
the interpreter running in a task window and Jones' original
documentation. Gofer was originally written by Mark P Jones
so that he could experiment with type classes on his PC at home.
Comma changes the type of any file to Data (ffd) and appends
to its name a comma followed by
the three hex digits of its numerical filetype.
Put a copy of Comma in a directory you want it
to work on, and doubleclick it. It will not
A small utility to set the filetypes and names of objects
packaged with their types given as a three hex-digit extension
following a comma.
Create simple web-books with Bind. Navigation links and content page
are built automatically. No knowledge of html or css required.
Weave is an application to create webpages. It is
based on the notion of a rope - or strings with holes; more technically
trees whose leaves are strings. A rope can be read out to a file
depth-first. In this way markup can be inserted without having to
concatenate strings. A weave script is a description of a rope
in Lua. This application, Weave 3, has been superseded by Weave 4,
which is a library for RiscLua.
Drag a file to TaskW's iconbar-icon to run it in a
taskwindow. This application is an example of a

which handles communications with the wimp so that only
Obeyfiles, or TaskObeyfiles, !Drag, !Select and !Adjust are
required for handling drags to, and clicks on, the sticky's
!qoppa is an application for making websites using markdown
and CSS files.
!yal is yet another locater application. Click Select on its iconbar-icon
to edit the searchfile, then drag a file or a directory onto the
iconbar-icon, and it will report in a taskwindow all those
lines in the file or in files within the directory that satisfy the criteria
specified by the lines of the searchfile. Each criterion may be plain
text or a pattern, and may be positive (must occur) or negative (must not occur). Criteria may be written in any order. Click Adjust on the iconbar-icon to edit the configuration file: which filetypes, which leafnames may be searched and whether the search is to recurse through subdirectories.
A big number package.
Put this in $.!Boot.Choices.Boot.Tasks and you will be able
to create soft links to an object by CTRL-dragging the object
to where you want the link to be (must be a different directory
from the original). Links have filetype &FDC and simply contain
the pathname of the object they refer to. Doubleclicks on the
link will filer_run the original object. CTRL-doubleclicks on
the link will open the directory in which the original lives.
You can drag links to copy them to other places, or CTRL-drag
them to make links to links. The end results behave much the same.
This converts CSV files to tables in an HTML file. Adjust-click
the iconbar-icon to edit the colours and format of the table.
