Requires: Kickstart 39+, MUI 3.8, BetterString MCC
Architecture: m68k-amigaos >= 3.0.0
The Amiga operating system is well designed, but for some reason it has
always lacked a decent textviewer. Commodore developed the More tool for reading
plain text, and Amiga Guide and MultiView offered more enhanced features,
including datatype recognition and such like. I wanted a textviewer which would
look good and blend in with all my other Workbench patches. I started developing
EvenMore in 1996 as a hobby. It started off fairly basic as textviewers go, but
now EvenMore offers functions such as proportional font support, multi-coloured
text, file conversion plugins, and more. EvenMore is entirely programmed in
AmigaE/ECX, which is an excellent programming language developed by Wouter van
Oortmerssen and Leif Salomonsson.
Here are its main features
o Plugin system for viewing many different file types, such as AmigaGuide,
HTML, WordWorth, MSWord, RTF, directories, etc.
o Supports ANSI escape code sequences for text formatting, including full
colour text for certain file types.
o Extended set of ANSI escape code sequences for additional font styles.
o True colour text rendering on systems with graphics cards.
o Wordwrapping feature that works on proportional fonts.
o Links are clickable in HTML, AmigaGuide, directories and other file types
o Drag and drop files on the window to open them.
o ARexx port for remote control.
o Search function.
o Configurable menus for frequently used documents.
o Clipboard support.
o Locale support.
o Unlimited bookmarking system.
Here are the recent changes
o Fixed non-responsiveness of gadgets in updated MUI 4.0 for AmigaOS4. An MUI
update was slightly incompatible with the way I had constructed my gadgets.
o Spaces will now be treated as a single block in wordwrapping. This should
speed up wrapping a little bit.
o Fixed wrapping when the line has escape code sequences in it.
o Fixed bug. Files were not loading from the current directory in the shell
if EvenMore was run from a different directory.
o Fixed bug. The buffer to linked list file conversion routine was not checking
for the last line if it did not end in a linefeed or carriage return.
There are still a few things to be ironed out though. Please read the docs.

I cannot expect to be able to develop this program much further, as I am a
Christian and believe Jesus Christ will return very soon. If I do not reply to
any mail for months and months, then the development of this program has ceased.
