Please note that this software was written to work with Risc OS 3.7. It may work with later (and earlier) 26-bit versions of OS but is unlikely to work with the 32-bit versions on the Iyonix.

There is nothing I can do about this. My Risc PC died early in 2005 and nothing I have tried will bring it back to life. All the source code is on its hard drive. I probably do have copies on floppies but without access to the machine I cannot read them.

Version 0.37
29th August 2000

Wombat is a desktop program which will convert text file character sets to and from Acorn Latin 1 and Mac/DOS/Windows character sets. It converts line endings and characters. Where a conversion can’t be done then a sensible substitute is made instead where possible. There’s a batch mode for converting all the text files in a directory too.

Version 0.37 is the same as 0.36 except that it uses dynamic areas for its workspace (where these are available).

Please note

The software on this site only runs under Risc OS. It will not run under Windows, DOS or any other PC thingy.

Of course it won’t run under Mac OS, Unix or any other operating system either but then if you use one of these you’ve probably sussed that out already. It seems to be only PC users who have trouble in this respect :-)
