In reply to most and especially to cmj: I think your did put your finger into the interesting issue: RISC OS does not allow for different Shared C Libraries in use at the same time as is easy in Linux. Adding to this the fact that there are two of them around, both are official by OS suppliers and the two suppliers seem to not want to co-operate. Perhaps this could work: Write a CLib loader for the ROL and the CTL CLib which replaces the SWI bases and Module names thus allowing both to be loaded and a new CLib module which is a wrapper for both.

Thus I applaud Grahams intention and I hope that his library will be happy to work with all three Stubs, i.e. the ROL one, the CTL one and with StubsG. Pity this is necessary due to the A9home not considered to be a valid product.
