SheppyWare is a name that encompasses all the software written by Eric Shepherd. Most of the software you'll find here is freeware or shareware for the Apple II computer, but some of it is for Mac OS X or even classic Mac OS or BeOS.

Be sure to read the latest news! I've been writing code again after a bit of a hiatus due to my day job.

Updated Merlin Macros

Today I’ve updated my Merlin macro sets for both System 6.0 and 6.0.1 and for GS/OS. The updated Merlin System 6 Macros file corrects an error; the GetAuxWindInfo macro was not set up correctly and would result in crashing code. Many thanks to Andrew Roughan, both for pointing this error out to me and for being persistent about it when I kept forgetting to fix it. If you use these macros, you should definitely download the new version.

The GS/OS macros haven’t had any functional changes made. Both macro files have some comment corrections; in particular contact information has been updated — I hadn’t done so since my college days; my old University of California microcomputer lab account hasn’t worked since 1995! Beyond that, you don’t have to update these.
