These past few days I was 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 into an AMB book. This is something that I will use as the help tool in the Svarog386 FreeDOS distribution. 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, etc).
