For Archimedes users who take their computing seriously, this guide to the Operating System gives you a real insight into the micro’s inner workings. The book is applicable to any model of Archimedes whether running the Arthur or RISC OS Operating Systems.
The Relocatable Module system is one of the many areas covered â its format is explained, and the information necessary to enable you to write your own modules and applications is provided. This tutorial approach is repeated through the book.
The sound system is explained and the text includes much information never before published.
The discerning user will revel in the wealth of information covering many aspects of Arthur and RISC OS including:
and much more…
Throughout the book, programs are used to provide practical examples to use side by side with the text, which go to make this publication the table-side companion for all Archimedes users.

In my quest to preserve retrocomputing documents, here is a very interesting reference of the orginal Acorn RISC Machine (ARM) computing platform and the RISC OS Operating System. Thanks to Dominik Wagner for the book. As always, my scanned books come with a table of contents and are fully searchable.
