RO4Patch & AcornSSL files needed

Post by Daveo » Mon May 11, 2020 6:10 pm

Hi.

I was advised by CJE Micros to post my request here, as both CJE Micros & myself have been unable to locate the file anyway online.

I'm after the file named 'RO4Patch' and I think it's used to make some RiscOS 3 software work under RiscOS 4.

I need it to get !65Host working on my RiscPC 700 (ARM 710) with RiscOS 4.39.

It is mentioned on this site, but no link to where to obtain the file, only a link to obtain !PCR13 which makes !65Host work on StrongARM processors (which at the moment, I don't have but possibly a future upgrade).

I need !65Host to access an old teletext software I use to run whilst at college. We ran it on networked BBC Micros and networked A5000 using !65Host.

I also need the file 'AcornSSL' module, which is required to access SSL sites using ArcWeb/NetSurf.

Any help is much appreciated.

I did wonder if the latest AcornSSL from ROOL would work, but it fails on my RO3.7 setup. I've not got 4.39 setup at the mo to try it on that.

However, you don't need it for NetSurf as that has the SSL library compiled in.

Ok. I've found the program that needs AcornSSL and it's called !FTPc.

Also, what filetype should RO4Patch be as it's a textfile at the moment.

Hi, what is the name of the software that you are trying to get working, it isn't Octave is it?

No, it !65Host and a teletext viewer/editor that I used in college to run the college campusfax service on BBC micros & Acorn A5000s.

Thanks, if you have time to tell us a bit more or to post some screenshots, I'm sure there will be some interested people.
