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
very much to look at. So I decided to write my own textviewer.
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
like without having to pay anything. I do not expect anything in return,
but if you do want to show your appreciation for it, you could send me your
As you may have noticed, I have uploaded the new EvenMore archive to the
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).

Text will now be rendered in true colour on systems with a graphics card
installed. This should include Amiga OS 3, MorphOS and hopefully on
AmigaOS 4. This has resulted in a significant speed increase. Screens with
8 bits or less will use pens for rendering text.
Fixed bug where pen and paper would not carry over a line if font styles

Generic2Text plugin will now recognize ELF executables from MorphOS if the
user has selected to launch them.
Added help bubbles to file gadgets.
Fixed icon imagery. Backgrounds are now transparent, which should look much

Rewrote the Guide2Text plugin from the ground up. Uses ReadItem() to parse
commands, and copies ordinary text much more efficiently.
