TBX is a library from Alan Buckley, designed to help with the development of Toolbox-based applications for RISC OS using C++. The library comes with a user guide and reference documentation, and as well as the library itself, there are additional downloads available featuring examples of the library in use, including a program to help produce skeleton projects.
DrWimpC is in the house
Peter Miller has released a new development tool for C programmers using RISC OS 4 or higher.
The software, explains Peter, is intended as “an application creation and development tool for WIMP applications written using the C programming language” and is the result of some discussions Peter had with the late Ray Favre, who looked after the DrWimp BASIC library from 1999 until his death in 2010, having taken it over from Andrew Ayre who originally developed and maintained it from 1995 until 1999. The developer explains that his original plan was to develop his own C programming tool, but agreed with Ray that it might be useful for others and would therefore release something to the community.
