Software ports

bww bitwise works GmbH provides selected software ports for the OS/2 platform. A port often requires various open source libraries. We do not only provide a specific software but also versions of these libraries for OS/2. These libraries may be used to provide ports of other software that makes use of them. Please find below a brief list of our main ports we did and maintain so far.
