BackDrop

RISC OS program to give a desktop background that files can be dropped on to. Originally supplied with the Spark program.

Trying to think of ideas (in 1989?) I looked at pictures of one of the UNIX desktops around at the time and thought why not allow files to be dropped on the RISC OS desktop background. This was the first such program for RISC OS and there was quite a bit of interest in it. I even got a list of things to fix from Acorn. For me it was a trivial thing to give away. I should have noted the interest and developed it further as others did.

Download RISC OS source code.
