|Fresh from Spot's bedroom! - Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.6.1.|
Failed to port stuff with the last version? Cheer up lad!
This guide is new and improved! Have another go! You can do it!
Read the history for a detailed list of changes.

WHY SHOULD I READ THIS? I CAN'T CODE!
Well, the sad fact is that, neither can I! :) I am just a stubborn geezer!
And look at me now... 300+ uploads to http://os4depot.net compiling
multiplatform stuff for AmigaOS 4.0 isn't THAT hard, c'mon! If I can do it,
you can do it too! You'll jump up and down screaming when you managed to
compile your first SDL app, I did! To my defence I have to say that I had
to figure out a lot of the process the hard way! :P
