The Amiga operating system is well designed, but for some reason it has always lacked a decent textviewer. Commodore developed the More tool for reading plain text, and Amiga Guide and MultiView offered more enhanced features, including datatype recognition and such like. I wanted a textviewer which would look good and blend in with all my other Workbench patches. I started developing EvenMore in 1996 as a hobby. It started off fairly basic as textviewers go, but now EvenMore offers functions such as proportional font support, multi-coloured text, file conversion plugins, and more. EvenMore is entirely programmed in AmigaE/ECX, which is an excellent programming language developed by Wouter van Oortmerssen and Leif Salomonsson. Here are its main features -------------------------- o Plugin system for viewing many different file types, such as AmigaGuide, HTML, WordWorth, MSWord, RTF, directories, etc. o Supports ANSI escape code sequences for text formatting, including full colour text for certain file types. o Extended set of ANSI escape code sequences for additional font styles. o True colour text rendering on systems with graphics cards. o Wordwrapping feature that works on proportional fonts. o Links are clickable in HTML, AmigaGuide, directories and other file types o Drag and drop files on the window to open them. o ARexx port for remote control. o Search function. o Configurable menus for frequently used documents. o Clipboard support. o Locale support. o Unlimited bookmarking system. and more... Here are the recent changes --------------------------- o Fixed AbiWord XML coloured text styles. o Optimised HTML/XML plugin a little. o Tidied up linewrapping. It doesn't work quite correctly on text that has escape code sequences in it yet. o Samir Hawamdeh has very kindly updated the Italian catalog. o The final line list is now constructed using pointers to the linked list of data line objects, rather than copying the actual line objects themselves. This should save memory and speed up wrapping a lot. o Fixed mousewheel scroll on AmigaOS 4 non-classic edition. Thanks to Samir Hawamdeh for testing. o Fixed non-responsiveness of gadgets in updated MUI 4.0 for AmigaOS4. An MUI update was slightly incompatible with the way I had constructed my gadgets. o Spaces will now be treated as a single block in wordwrapping. This should speed up wrapping a little bit. o Fixed wrapping when the line has escape code sequences in it. o Fixed bug. Files were not loading from the current directory in the shell if EvenMore was run from a different directory. o Fixed bug. The buffer to linked list file conversion routine was not checking for the last line if it did not end in a linefeed or carriage return. There are still a few things to be ironed out though. Please read the docs. Updates available at www.evenmore.co.uk I cannot expect to be able to develop this program much further, as I am a Christian and believe Jesus Christ will return very soon. If I do not reply to any mail for months and months, then the development of this program has ceased.
