Deepwoods Software started back in 1993 as the part-time side business of Robert Heller, who was working at the Computer Vision Research Laboratory three days a week. Robert likes to write programs and wanted to do something other than just work for someone else at a 9-to-5, 40-hour-a-week sort of job for the rest of his life (how boring, yawn…), so Robert has been writing programs in his computer shed, some for himself (several of which are available for sale or as free downloads as Deepwoods Software’s products) and some for other people (have to pay the bills somehow).

Since being laid off from UMass in mid November of 2005, Deepwoods Software is now Robert’s main source of work. Robert has been writing software programs on a number of different platforms, under VMS and various flavors of UNIX (SunOS, Irix, Untrix, OSF/True64, and Linux), as well as CP/M-68K (a version of CP/M 2.2 for 68000 processors), Kronos/Nos (CDC Cyber), and XVM-DOS (PDP-15), as well as a few others even more obscure, using a wide range of programming languages, including BASIC, FORTRAN, SNOBOL, LISP, C/C++, Tcl/Tk, Postscript, Assembler (68K, CDC Cyber, 6502, 8008, and VAX), Pascal, Cobol, and APL.
