One of the factors that attracted me to Euphoria in 2007 was the site with an Archive of programs and other Euphoria sites. Yes, I still download libraries there. Now it is quite difficult to find new programs/libraries. OE reminds me of the Linux community, A lot of programs for Euphoria/OE I just couldn't run, either demanding libraries that weren't included, or swearing at existing ones. Forgive my clumsy language, it's Google Translate's fault

I often wished i could help.

You could always help out on the archives/PCAN. There are 2000+ entries that have not been tested recently, some not for more than two decades.
Which are genuinely complete trash, which need a few minor tweaks, which run on 4.1 or Phix and with what dependencies or other setup requirements?
Some examples:
http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.Diamond-liteObjectOrientedLibrary - I uploaded a phix-compatible version, and marked it with [[!phix]]
You could also start adding [[!eu41]] tags (I may or may not need to do a little admin to get that all working nicely and correctly)
http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Catagory.Rejected - many of those were unfairly marked [[!rejected]] because of the DOS tag
They could all be tried/reworked with http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.DosRescueForPhix or the Eu 4.1 version of that
Like http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.TwinsGame add a [[!broken]] tag if you've conceded defeat, or for that matter
sift through http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Catagory.Broken looking for things you can fix, or want fixing

If you or anyone else are going to work on PCAN then before you start read http://phix.x10.mx/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.Introduction
PCAN is a wiki. It is meant for the likes of you (yes, you) to edit.
