For System 7.0 - 7.6
Guides on emulating older applications

A set of utilities to make life with an early PowerBook easier. Most or all of these functions appear to have been taken over or improved upon by later versions of Mac OS 7.

Use of this software with later PowerBooks (500 series, 190 models, PPC models, etc.) is not recommended unless there is a later version or update for those models. The current archive is version 1.1.

Architecture: 68k

Mac OS 7.0.x, 100-series PowerBook or PowerBook Duo. Not likely to be needed with later versions of Mac OS 7.

This came to me in an auction I won on eBay, so I've never used it. I would only recommend trying it if you have an early PowerBook and for some reason only want to run Mac OS 7.0.x, or just maybe 7.1. I know that the version of 7.1.1 my PowerBook 540c came with already has much of this functionality built-in, for example.
