Software - Small Utilities and Tools

All the files are packed into ZIP archives. You can unpack them with David Pilling's !SparkPlug (if you don't have !SparkFS itself).

I don't give any guarantee for usefulness and reliability. Downloading and using any of the applications is totally at your own risk.

If you do however have any comments, suggestions or found any bugs, don't hesitate to contact me by clicking on the email address in the page footer.

Remember though, all of the following programs have been written to suit my needs. So they may or may not be useful to you. ;-)

 

Small Utilities and Tools

!SqlPathEd
!SqlPathEd
Version: 1.09
Updated: 30-Dec-2002
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (9K) / Signature
If you own !Squirrel ( by DSL) then this may be of some use to you. It is a little utility which lets you convert absolute paths into relative ones in Squirrel Queries. Additionally it can be used as Table launcher if you have set up apropriate system variables.

!SprSearch
!SprSearch
Version: 1.03
Updated: 07-Feb-2001
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (6K) / Signature
This small application lets you rip sprite blocks out of other file types. Very useful in combination with !Zap's (http://www.zap.uk.eu.org/) grab application function. Just grab some application's workspace and search it for its sprites. :-)

!DAK
!DAK
Version: 1.00
Updated: 09-Apr-1999
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (6K) / Signature
The Dynamic Area Killer is used to kill off dynamic areas that have been left by an application that has crashed. In addition, !DAK shows all the information about the dynamic areas it can get.

!CPUIdle
!CPUIdle
Version: 1.01
Updated: 30-Dec-2002
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (2K) / Signature
!CPUIlde displays - in a small window - the number of Null_Event per second that it gets on Wimp_Polls. This is a rough measurement about the processor usage. BTW: No comment about the icon! I was just too lazy to design an icon for this little tool!

!Compare
!Compare
Version: 2.02
Updated: 31-Dec-2002
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (8K) / Signature
!Compare takes two files or directories and compares the contents. It doesn't show the differences of the files like GNU diff or Acorn's diff utility, it's just intended to give a fast overview whether two files or applications are the same or not.

!Backdrop+
!Backdrop+
Version: 1.01
Updated: 16-Jan-2001
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (30K) / Signature
!Backdrop+ lets you display JPEG images as pinboard backdrops. If a mode change occurs, the JPEG gets re-rendered to ensure that it is displayed always in best quality.

!IconBar95
!IconBar95
Version: 1.00
Updated: 09-Apr-1999
32-bit ready: yes
Download: Binary (8K) / Signature
!IconBar95 was written to bring the icon bar to the top when it is covered by windows and the mouse is moved below a configurable line. This feature is now implemented in the WindowManager (since 3.96 IIRC). But still, you can't configure it. With !IconBar95 you can configure the behaviour. Rumors are that this is possible with RISC OS 4 as well.
