SDL Hercules 4.x Hyperion


This web page provides information regarding the SoftDevLabs (SDL) version of Hercules 4.x, code named Hyperion.

The official Web Site for the SDL version of Hyperion:

The official web site for the SDL version of Hercules 4.x Hyperion can be reached at the following URL:
Online documentation for the SDL version of Hercules 4.x Hyperion
The above web site contains reference documentation for the SDL version of Hercules 4.x Hyperion, which contains features, functionality and fixes that are neither in the current spinhawk production version of Hercules nor in the original 4.0 Hyperion version of Hercules.

PDF Manuals:     (obsolete)

Some people find it more convenient for their reference documentation to be in the form of PDF manuals rather than via online web pages.

The following are links to PDF manuals containing technical information pertaining to the original 4.0 Hyperion version of Hercules (not the SDL version):
Note: the above PDF manuals might not exactly match the online documentation for the SDL version of Hercules, but for the time being they should be very close. The online documentation for my version however should always be correct. Please let me know if you discover it's not.
