Software - Ports

All the files are packed into ZIP archives. You can unpack them with David Pilling's !SparkPlug (if you don't have !SparkFS itself).

I don't give any guarantee for usefulness and reliability. Downloading and using any of the applications is totally at your own risk.

If you do however have any comments, suggestions or found any bugs, don't hesitate to contact me by clicking on the email address in the page footer.

Remember though, all of the following programs have been written to suit my needs. So they may or may not be useful to you. ;-)

 

Things I ported to RISC OS

GnuPG for RISC OS
GnuPG for RISC OS
GnuPG for RISC OS has its own homepage!

Bogofilter
Bogofilter
Version: 1.0.0-sb1
Updated: 03-Dec-2005
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (1827K) / Signature
Bogofilter is a Bayesian Spam filter. It's similar to Jan-Jaap van der Geer's SpamStamp, but in my opinion, Bogofilter classifies better (SpamStamp however is faster). The original Bogofilter homepage is at http://bogofilter.sourceforge.net/.

LAME
LAME
Version: 3.92
On this page I was hosting my RISC OS port of the free LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder. But since quite some time there exists a better port at http://www.archifishal.co.uk/riscos/hosted.shtml.

OpenLDAP
OpenLDAP
Version: 2.0.27
Updated: 01-Jan-2003
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (352K) / Signature
This is (part of) the OpenLDAP library compiled for RISC OS. You'll need it if you want to compile programs which say that they'll need the OpenLDAP library. If you want to compile OpenLDAP on your own, you'll need GNU regex below as well.

GNU regex
GNU regex
Version: 0.12
Updated: 01-Jan-2003
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (67K) / Signature
This is the GNU regular expression library. You'll need it if you want to compile the OpenLDAP library for yourself. If you're looking for a RISC OS RegEx module, look in the Modules Section.

Info-ZIP
Info-ZIP
Version: Zip 2.3, UnZip 5.5
32-bit ready: yes
I used to provide the command line tools Zip and UnZip from the Info-ZIP suite, but Andrew Wingate now hosts more up-to-date versions. So just visit his site and get the lastest versions from there.

zipcracker
zipcracker
Version: 1.0-sb2
Updated: 01-Jan-2003
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (70K) / Signature

This is a program that can brute-force-attack encrypted zipfiles. So, if you've lost a password to one of your zip files, this is may be of some help to you. The source code can be found at Jonas Borgström's web site.

unrar
unrar

Download: Binary (163K) / Signature
This command line utility lets you extract and test archives packed with the RAR 3.x archiver (and older). Source code is available somewhere from http://www.rarsoft.com/ in non-RISC OS form. Anyone wanting my few modifications may drop me an email.

32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (93K) / Signature
Source (22K) / Signature
This is a small program that implements access to TCP sockets in both server and client mode. You can pipe things into sockets and read from them. Since 26-Dec-2001 it is compiled with gcc 2.95.4 and linked against the included UnixLib, which means that it should work with PPP connections as well without crashing your machine.

greed
greed
Version: 0.82+ BETA 1 sb4
Updated: 23-Jan-2001
32-bit ready: no
Download: Binary (72K) / Signature
Source (38K) / Signature
This small program lets you download files from the net. HTTP and FTP fetches are supported. It can resume aborted downloads and import GetRight fetch scripts. But it is very basic and even some of the options don't work. I urge you to use either Peter Naulls' port of wget or Michael Curtis' port of cURL instead.

Crafty
Crafty
Version: 18.15

32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (303K) / Signature
Crafty is a very strong chess engine. I've ported it to RISC OS as a command line chess program. It is quite fast as well.

GNU Go
GNU Go
Version: 3.4
Updated: 10-Aug-2003
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library, requires 32-bit Shared Unix Library)
Download: Binary (678K) / Signature
This is just a very basic port of GNU Go. GNU Go plays the game of Go (what did you expect?). Currently there's no graphical frontend but just the ASCII client present. Please drop me an email by clicking on the email address in the page footer if you're interested in further development of this basic port. GNU Go's home page is at http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/gnugo.html if you want to take a look.

rinetd

Updated: 28-Dec-2003
32-bit ready: yes (requires 32-bit Shared C Library)
Download: Binary (52K) / Signature
Source (28K) / Signature
rinetd redirects TCP connections from one IP address and port to another. It is a single process server which handles any number of connections specified in a configuration file. It uses non-blocking I/O and can therefore handle a large number of connections without a severe impact on the machine.

junkbuster
junkbuster
Version: 2.0.2-sb2
Updated: 28-Jan-2002
32-bit ready: no
Download: Binary (155K) / Signature
Source (80K) / Signature
junkbuster filters out annoying advertising banners when browsing the web. It has very sophisticated configuration files so you can tweak it to exactly behave as you want (default configuration files are supplied). Please note that I already had a later version here for download, but this didn't work properly. Until I can fix this, here's the older, but working version.

dict is a client for the Dictionary Server Protocol (DICT), a TCP transaction based query/response protocol that provides access to dictionary definitions from a set of natural language dictionary databases. You may want to have a look here as well.

HSC
HSC
Version: based on 0.917

HTML Tidy
HTML Tidy
32-bit ready: yes
I have compiled HTML Tidy for 32-bit readiness. Two versions are available, one based on Sourceforge and using Unix style filenames and the other based on Justin Fletcher's original port (which is now unavailable from his site) but recompiled, using RISC OS style filenames and throwback support.
