AMOS extensions

This is a comprehensive list of AMOS extensions.

AMOS is a BASIC-like language for the Amiga. It supports extensions, which add more instructions to the language. Each extension must be loaded into one of 25 slots in AMOS's configuration file.

All available versions of each extension are listed. You can still obtain them today. Since AMOS's heyday over 20 years ago, many outdated and rare extensions have gone missing. These are listed on a separate page: missing AMOS extensions.

The extensions listed in bold are first-party extensions, either bundled with AMOS or sold separately. All the others are third-party extensions.
