Software 'Wot I have written
The following programs are written for computers running RISC OS. These can either be run on a real
piece of RISC OS hardware, or on one of its emulators.

- JPEGTools is an archive containing a number of JPEG related binaries.
A number of RISC OS applications make use of these various utilites, and the ones supplied here have been compiled up so as to work on the Iyonix PC.
These binaries will still work on non-Iyonix machines, but require the 32 bit Clib to be installed, which can be found on the
Iyonix: !System updates webpage.
- cjpeg - Creates JPEG files from Targa
- djpeg - Converts a JPEG file into a BMP, Sprite, GIF, OS2, PNM or Targa file.

- SmallRTV Updated 1998-03-15 04:02:00
- SmallRTV a TV only front end to Irlam Instruments RiscTV card.
This is a beta release of SmallRTV. It has currently only been tested on my Risc PC SA machine. It is a 40K application that supports all the 40 channels, has volume control, audio and video controls (bass, brightness etc.)
- BTTelnet Updated 2000-10-30 09:34:00
- BTTelnet is a simple command line telnet client that can be used for connecting to MUDs, Unix machines and other various telnet servers.
Also, if RComp"s SecureSockets module is loaded, it will attempt to establish a secure (SSL) connection with the remote server, dropping back down to normal telnet if it fails.
- DaytimeServer Updated 1999-08-03 02:16:00

- VNCViewer Updated 1999-03-05 00:02:00
VNCViewer, a VNC viewer for RISC OS.
Allows you (With an appropiate VNCServer) to display and use remote desktops on your Risc OS machine. Similar to using an XServer.
I've tested VNCViewer and VNCServe by running VNCServe on my Risc PC, and VNCViewer on my A5000 using PPP over a 19200 serial connection. A bit slow, but it works, and with the correct colours too :)
Further information can be got from Wikipedia.
- VNCInput Updated 2002-05-29 20:53:00
VNCInput, a VNC input only client for RISC OS.
Similar to VNCViewer above, but only sends mouse and keyboard events to the remote server. Useful when you have two computers side-by-side and don't wish to keep changing keyboards.
Input is switched when you move the mouse off the right hand side of the screen.

This is an alpha release of RiscX. An X server for RISC OS, allowing you to connect to remote machines and run the various X clients available.
- RiscXLib Updated 2002-11-01 11:04:24
- The RiscXLib archive contains a number of library files and include files required to compile up X applications under RISC OS.
Note: The !RiscXLib application that came with RiscX is needed to make use of these files.
