BetterString is a string gadget replacement for Amiga systems. It is created for MUI, so using it should eliminate the problems with the original BOOPSI string class. The class offers the user to do number arithmetic, like increase, decrease and bin to hex conversion. It has filename completion, ability to mark, cut, copy and paste text - Both via mouse and keyboard. The length of the contents buffer will dynamically be expanded to hold all of what the user type (unless a maximum length is given)
BetterString.mcc is available for AmigaOS3, AmigaOS4, MorphOS and AROS.
All releases up to the most current ones can be downloaded from our central releases management.
