RiscPkg is a package manager for RISC OS. Its three main functions are:
* to download and install new software packages on request;
* to update installed packages when new versions are released; and
* to remove packages when they are no longer needed.
If one package requires another in order to run, a request to install
the first package will cause the second to be installed also. If a
package has been installed automatically but is no longer needed, it is
RiscPkg is currently at an early stage of development and it has not yet
received extensive testing. It is also of limited value to end users
without a substantial package collection in the correct format. I hope
it will act as a focus for further development and provide a taste of
what may be possible in the future.
