Hello,

I've been trying to get this to work, but I've not been able to get it to compile anything. Here's what's happened when I've tried:
compil.png
compil2.png
What might I be doing wrong? I've changed the directory to ADFS::disk.$, but there's probably a lot of other stuff I don't know about that you're supposed to do as well.
Is there a PDF version of the manual for this?

I've not actually used it, but I'm gonna guess you're trying to write to a read-only floppy.

Due to risc os not having file extensions, and the compiler kind of requiring them you have to fake it

imagine a project with the following files on windows/unix

thing.c
thing.h

you need to create a c, h, and o directories so

c.thing
h.thing
o

that should work

Incidentally release 3 and 5 work on risc os 3.1 too, and I've got scans of the manuals and ADFs
