Anybody using RISC OS ?

I'm not entirely sure what it's used on or whether the variants I'm a sometime amateur developer on should support it or not. (It seems like it might support 'ACORN' but there are hints that files are missing )

What Variant? I know there are users of ACORN/RISCOS for Angband, Gumband, ToME, and (I think) Hengband. (Or at least there have been such users within the past year)

Hengband is interesting because there are lines like
#ifdef ACORN
scattered through the source code but there is no
main-acn.c
file (and comments in the code would seem to indicate one is necessary).

Same thing with Angband 3.1.0. The 'standard' main.c includes a
#if defined(WIN32_CONSOLE_MODE) \
|| (!defined(WINDOWS) && !defined(RISCOS)) \
|| defined(USE_SDL)
but there does not appear to be an alternative main-???.c for RISCOS.

Are people filling in the gaps themselves, so to speak?

I think the trouble is that the code rots quickly without users/developers

The known active users were Martin and Harriet Bazley, who used to post regularly at rgra, but haven't been seen in quite a while.

Practically, the RISC OS port is dead, with little hope of being resurrected.

Yeah, there was some weird 'feature' (/user error?) with Dev-C++ that meant that I was looking at the wrong files for all the main-???.c files I wasn't using.


(Probably user error now I come to think of it - all those source directories look the same! )
