Rashumon word processor
« on: August 23, 2013, 08:44:35 PM »
Hi,

Rashumon was probably the first and only multilingual graphic word processor for the Amiga. It was used mainly by people who needed to use multiple languages. There is a working version at Aminet, and even though it was a commercial product, I recently published that I will give the source code to anyone who will be interesting in working on a new version.

I have written a post about how it was developed back in 1989 in my blog here.


If you have articles such as magazine reviews, etc. about Rashumon please send them to me.

Thanks,

Michael Haephrati

Hi,

what kind of language is used? "C" ? I ask because of the portability to AROS for example.

Is releasing under an open source license an option for you?

Edit: you could then add a link to the Sourceforge project page to Wikipedia ;-)

Yes, seems so, since he used the Aztec compiler.

Ah this is nice. It is important to "rescue" natively such applications over to NG Amiga systems. Especially AROS ; )

Is Hebrew the only RTL script supported or is Perso-Arabic available too?

Would be nice to see this ressurected and become part of the AROS Contrib drawer. :)
