This page contains software originally published by Stuart Halliday of Quantum Software and previously made available from Quantum Software's own website. Stuart gave his kind permission to allow the software to continue to be made available shortly after announcing in 2006 that he was shutting down Quantum Software.

Please note that this page is merely a means to make that software available, and that RISCOSitory/Soft Rock Software cannot provide any kind of support or help with its use - the software is provided 'as is'. That said, updates may be made available for some items, where it is practical to do so.
