These past few days I have been working on a new hobby project. It is
called AMB, and it is a simple hyperlink format that makes it possible
to create "books" that are easy to read even on very limited hardware.
The "books" can be viewed with a tool named AMB. It is only a few
kilobytes big and requires about 80K of available RAM.
As a demo, I converted the FreeDOS help today into an AMB book. The AMB
reader, as well as the format specification and the converted FreeDOS
help file can all be downloaded on the project's home page:
It is still a very much work-in-progress project, but perfectly
functional already. I will certainly add a few features during incoming
weeks (mouse support, some form of light compression, full-text search,
I'd like also to compile the RBIL into an AMB book in some near future.
