GenINI version 1.6 released

eComStationNews.com - Fri, 20140829 - 01:12 -0600

The GenINI package has been updated to version 1.6. You can obtain it from


or from Hobbes. There is no change in functionality from version 1.5.
The only reason for this release is to add a GNU GPL open-source licence.

GenINI consists of two programs, to convert between the INI and TNI file
formats. A TNI file is a human-readable version of an INI file. It can
be used for backing up INI files. It can also be used in conjunction
with the Weasel and Major Major mail programs.

PMOS/2 updated

eComStationNews.com - Thu, 20140828 - 04:37 -0600

The PMOS/2 library of Modula-2 source code has been updated, and can be
fetched from


It is mostly of interest to programmers who want source code snippets
for a variety of operations. The code should be easily readable by
anyone familiar with Pascal-like programming languages.

The main reason for this release is to convert the code licence to GPL.
In the not too distant future I intend to re-release several of my
programs as open-source, and those programs make extensive use of the
PMOS/2 code.
