Ideally this section will contain information on the whole spectrum of Acorn computers, and their uses, ranging from the RISC PC to the humble Beeb. Unfotunately so far, all the docs I have lined up to include here (and more are on their way) are for either the Arcs or the Pocketbook/Psion 3/3a. If you have docs you want to submit, please do not hesitate - someone somewhere will find them useful.
All the documentation provided here is done so in good faith, but we can obviously not guarantee its accuracy.
The following documentation has been pulled together from several sources, including internal Acorn documentation. Thanks are due especially to Pelago (John Veness: firstname.lastname@example.org) for his efforts in both collating and improving the readabilty of this text.
Due to the varied sources of this text, there is bound to be some repetition - if you spot any really blatent repetitions can you mail me please? Also, bear with the brief descriptions of the information; as soon as I get a chance to look at the text I will try and improve the descriptions on this menu.
Some of this information dates back to Arthur, some to RISC OS 3.1. Hopefully in the near future there wil be clear indications of which is which, but until then, bear with us.
All the information here has now been converted to html form by the 'txt2html' tool (thanks go to Nick Shore for bringing this to my attention). It is bound not to be perfect, but I will touch it up as I get time. Volunteers to help with this would be most welcome.
As Clive Feather is now providing his excellent Psionics files on the web, there seems little point in me mirroring them here. I have therefore sacfificed them to the quota god.They are now available on Clives own site.
In addition, John Dawson has kindly provided me with a zipfile of Documentation on the OS calls for the Psion, copied from Compuserve for the benefit of the world at large. For now this is included here as a zipfile of `.DOCs', but hopefully an HTML version will soon become available.
