Hello Ullrich, >> Any news on the f.s. from the other guy? Any comments on my docs? UvB> Several people have contacted me with ideas for file support for CBMs. UvB> However, I don't have any information about usable code (usable in the sense UvB> that it works with all CBMs and may be used with cc65 without problems). So if UvB> anyone on the list has already some code, please speak up. The new graphics UvB> interface uses loadable graphics drivers, so having standard C file routines UvB> is getting more important in the future, because no file support means either UvB> special casing or no graphics support. i have some code.... if you look at the snapshot you can get an idea of how its designed... however, the current version has many little bugs fixed (a bunch of those related to compiler problems ;)) and its actually "almost" useable (that is, works ok for opening ONE file at a time atm, most standard routines implemented, except seeking -which is going to be troublesome on cbm drives-) i was actually waiting for these loadables drivers and some instruction on how to use them so i can test if that filestuff really works as intended ;) (especially since that filesystem is supposed to consist of certain modules by itself, so you can write native drivers for HD etc pp) oh, that filesystem currently uses the kernal (jumptable calls only) so it should be fairly portable to most (all?) other cbm-machines. i will look into the stuff again when i finished moving... gotta update to most recent compiler then and get all the stuff compiled (i have some more things coming up aswell.... a port of "NED" which is even kindof useable, port of that "bytebench", port of the lcc compiler-testsuite, some C99-stuff that was missing, c99 testcode ... (also the floating point stuff that you dont like, its still somewhat useful though ;=)) i was also considering writing a simple "tetris" using the conio-module as a programming example, but i havent done that yet :) -- Best regards, groepaz mailto:groepaz_at_gmx.net ---------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list send mail to majordomo_at_musoftware.de with the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
