Introduction

WinEd is a window template editor for RISC OS, which can be used to design windows for use in RISC OS Wimp programs. Its original founding aim was to do everything which TemplEd could do, only better! Now it provides a comprehensive graphical interface to ease the creation of sophisticated and consistent program windows.

History

WinEd was originally written by Tony Houghton. The last version released by Tony was 2.87 in 2003, and is still available (with source) here. From 2003 until 2009, WinEd was maintained by Adam Richardson. The versions that he released, culminating in 3.20, are still available to download.

More recently, Steve Fryatt has rebuilt WinEd with some fixes for modern RISC OS systems.

Distribution

WinEd is distributed as a package for RiscPkg and should appear in the Third Party distribution from RISC OS Open, which is subscribed to automatically when RiscPkg is installed. In addition, it is also available in the R-Comp PlingStore.

For those who do not use these distribution systems, recent versions may be found here, along with test builds of new functionality which are not made available through PackMan or PlingStore.

Development

WinEd is released under the GNU General Public License and the source code is kept in a subversion repository on riscos.info (which can be checked out anonymously or viewed via WebSVN). The code is written in C, compiled using GCC to use the SharedCLibrary runtime library and makes extensive use of DeskLib. It also uses the memory allocation routines of the flex library.

Any bug reports, feature requests or offers of help are best directed towards Steve Fryatt.
