Path-Amiga is an attempt to write a web browser from the scratch. The project started in the
second half of 2001. The project has been on hold for some time (since early in 2003), because
I waited for the release of AmigaOS4. This is a complete port to AmigaOS4. I'm afraid that previous versions of
the OS will not be supported anymore.
The HTML support is still very basic, so it doesn't make much sense surfing through the Internet with it yet.
But this situation should better with the next versions.
Have fun with Path!
A computer with AmigaOS4
- Reaction interface
- Minimal HTML support
- Clipboard support
- Support of DOS files
- Support of HTTP1.1
- Graphical buttons
- Preferences window for changing fonts, colours, GUI
- Graphical printing
- English and german localisation
- Protection against the Pipe security hole
- Known flaws:
The system hangs sometimes with unsuitable files (e.g. binaries)
- Program history:
- v1.2 (01.05.2005):
Ported to AmigaOS4. In this process I have revised the complete code, i.e. OS functions are
called by interfaces, all LONG, UBYTE, ... types have been converted to int32, uint8, ...,
a lot of code has been encapsulated in classes and I have removed some bugs.
Printing seems to work all right with OS4 and Turboprint, though I haven't done any serious changes
The scrollers are now behaving correctly when viewing large files.
The manual seems to be really displayed correctly now, that is no unwanted spaces or graphics errors
- v1.1 (Never released):
Colours for printing and HTML fonts are selectable in the preferences.
When you enter the address "about:", Path will display the manual.
New menu item: "About ..."
Support of "leftmargin" and "topmargin" in the "body" tag.
Better behaviour of the "Back" and "Forward" buttons.
Redirections are shown in the URL text field.
Addresses without protocol specification are not loaded directly anymore, but redirected by
adding "http://" in front of the address.
When copying text into the clipboard, the marked text is deselected.
You can interrupt the clicking of a link by dragging the mouse pointer away or by pressing the
right mouse button.
Argument passing in the Shell in much more "Amiga like".
removed bug: The HTML parser swallowed "&" characters in certain situations.
New icons by Martin "Mason" Merz
