RiscXLib is a set of libraries that allow X client programs to be compiled and run on RISC OS with little or no changes to the source code. Of course if a client uses a lot of non-X library calls then it may take a bit more work to get it compiled.

All the programs and Library files were compiled up using GCC V2.96 and UnixLib 3.8. So far it has only been tested on RISC OS 3.6, 3.7 and 4.02. But there shouldn't be any reason why it wouldn't work on pre RISC OS 3.6 machines.

This web page is only temporary, hopefully a better and more informative one will be put together shortly. So if you have any questions then please feel free to email me.
