EvenMore is a textviewer for the Amiga written in AmigaE and ECX. This is my first
project on the Amiga and I have been developing it since 1996. I decided to start programming EvenMore because I
wanted to learn to program on the Amiga. I didn't like any of the
textviewers that were available, they had a lot of functions but weren't

An early version of EvenMore (v0.33 I think) appeared on the
coverdisk of Amiga Computing (RIP) and several versions (v0.49 most
recently, I think) appeared on the cover CD of CU Amiga (RIP) and Amiga Format
EvenMore is freeware. This means you can use EvenMore as much as you

website. You can be sure the latest EvenMore will be available here (Since
sometimes I take breaks from programming, there may be times when there
aren't new updates of EvenMore).
