N-Connect - Amstrad NC100 to RISC-OS Link

N-Connect is the most comprehensive system for transferring data between Acorn RISC-OS machines and the Amstrad NC100 Notepad computer.

It makes the NC100 an integral part of your RISC-OS desktop. Documents processed on the NC100 under ProText can be dropped into Impression with styles preserved, and similarly text can be dragged to the NConnect icon to send to the NC100.

For the programmer BASIC programs can be ported to and from the NC100 with the minimum of user intervention, full diagnostics are provided via the DDE throwback system if it is present. N-Connect can also detokenise both forms of BASIC into text.
