All programs mentioned here requires that you have an Amiga compatible computer of some sort. Unless stated otherwise, they require AmigaOS 3.0 or higher. The programs are either written in the Gui4Cli programming language, or they are simple requester based shell scripts that uses the RequestChoice and RequestFile commands.  If you are interested in trying them out, you can find download links both below, and on the Downloads page.


  Amiga911 Maker
Amiga911 Maker is an easy to use program for creating boot disks which contains various drivers and tools. These disks can then be used for setting up harddisks, fixing broken Workbench installations, restoring files from backups, transferring files from PC to Amiga in various ways, etc.  Although it started life here on this website, all Amiga911 Maker pages was later moved to a site dedicated to the program, and the link below leads to this site.

In addition to the above programs, there are also the four old ones listed below. Just have in mind that they may contain bugs, are mainly tested with AmigaOS 3.9 only, and that some of them includes a couple of more or less "creative" type of solutions. I have been meaning to try touching them up a bit for several years now, but I have never found the time. Another thing to be aware of, is that they have an old version of the Gui4Cli executable included. Do not install this to your system! Get the latest one from Aminet instead.


  Breaker
Breaker is a little WB program with only one purpose, and that is to stop programs that are running in the background. To do this, it sends a BREAK signal to the selected program, this will be the same as pressing Ctrl/C if that was possible.

  CHARisma
CHARisma is a GUI with a listview that contains all standard PRINTABLE characters in the ASCII-table. When you click on a character it will be added to a text string. You can then save this string to a file or you can copy it to the clipboard, allowing you to use it in another program. This can be useful when you don't remember the right key-combination to a character.

  Helene
There are a lot of programs out there that allows you to get a random Workbench backdrop each time your Amiga boots, but if you also want a matching background for the Windows, you are out of luck since most of them don't support this. That is why I created Helene. You simply use it to select backdrops for both the Workbench & Windows, then you save this as a WB Pattern preset file. After creating a couple of preset files, you can select one at random by running a little script.

  RHz FileChecker
RHz FileChecker is a program which allows the user to identify various types of files in a quick and easy way by using a GUI. In addition it can add the correct extension to files that are missing or have a wrong extension in the file name. It can't be used for viewing any files since it is intended for recognizing file types only.
