EvenMore


Islam, Israel and the end times... Prophecy news updated daily


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 (RIP).

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 comments.

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).
