Timezone file update?

Just a quick enquiry to see if the timezone files are maintained, and if they're custom or generated from something like the TZDATA used by many operating systems? I ask, because the Australia.timezone file is dated at 2008, and it includes DST rules for Western Australia, which was a 3 year trial w...

How does AmigaOS 4.x handle PC-Style keyboard mapping?

I'm interested in how AmigaOS 4.x handles mapping a standard PC-style keyboard (with Windows keys etc) to be used as an Amiga keyboard. Is there any sort of documentation about PC-Style (10keyless and 101/104/105 key boards) keycodes mapping to Amiga keyboards in AmigaOS 4.x? I'm interested in what ...

I have now. :-) Well, GUI.. there's no ReAction drawer.

I see the examples use the ReAction Macros. I has been said this is not a good idea. What do you advise?

Re: [Newbie] Hello... I am lost.

Another question I have on my mind is that of windows, and when to open/create them. I'm 'porting' an application fron MS Windows for which I have the Delphi source (I'm reading that code, and completely writing my own C code, in order to learn how to write Amiga C code). The program has about 4 win...

Re: [Newbie] Hello... I am lost.

Where does IExec come from? If you run without startup code, the system provides IExec to you. Thanks. I found this in the AmigaOS Wiki moments ago: Except where noted, each example was linked with the standard newlib startup code which provides the following interfaces: IExec, IDOS and IUtility So...

[Newbie] Hello... I am lost.

Hi All, So I've wanted to get into development for AmigaOS since I did the retro kick in 2007 or so. The retro kick is gone now, and I want to focus on developing for PPC OS4.x. I have my eye on a project on the OpenAmiga.org site, but I'm nowhere near competent enough to even volunteer yet. I've st...
