AMOS Professional is a program development environment.
It is an updated version of AMOS. The program should run on the A500, A500+, A2000, and A3000, but check for non-standard configurations.
The test system was an A500+ (2MB CHIP RAM), A590 hard drive
with 2MB FAST RAM, external floppy, Phillips 8833 monitor,
and WB 2.04.
Included in the release is 6 disks, a hefty, soft-covered, spine-bound
(NOT ring-bound) manual, a manual for the four games (includes
a Golden Rules of Programming section which will amuse professional
programmers, mainly for its omissions) and a registration card.
The obvious intent is to provide the user with a complete development
environment for software on the Amiga. There are substantial language
extensions and improvements, the principal ones being: support for MED
and Tracker modules, an AMOS Interface (the AMOS equivalent of Intuition),
ARexx, serial port support, access to system libraries and devices,
and machine code support. A lot of this is to provide more complete access
to the full functionality of the machine, and for many programmers is chrome.
Of the extensions, the AMOS Interface is possibly the most useful.
