Re: Memofest 2019 at Andys

Thanks Andy.

I don't do Facebook so unable to vote. I will try and come whatever date selected, although in general later in October is better for me.

No surprises from me this year. All my Memotech time has gone on software, which Dave has already published.

Re: Bootstrap and boot blocks

Alan, a request from Dave. As you know, the MTX keyboard matrix potentially supports 80 keys, only 77 of which are implemented in hardware. The three unused locations are used by the PC keyboard interface , MTX+ and my version of MEMU to implement virtual keys with characters having the same shift s...

Re: Bootstrap and boot blocks

Rather off-topic for this thread, but to finish up the discussion of the memu-cfg issue, the causes were: A mis-understanding on my part :? I thought that there was only one UI thread, whereas there is actually one per window. I also hadn't appreciated the consequences of the keypress () and keyrele...

Re: Bootstrap and boot blocks

Yes, the bug is in the VDP code, but not related to Fuzex. It happens even when emulating an MTX 512. The symptoms: Start memu-cfg. Tap the "Menu" key to open the configuration window. Select "Exit" from the bottom line of the window. The configuration window closes. What should then happen is the r...

Re: Bootstrap and boot blocks

Dave, Some changes to MEMU: Mods to allow mounting Alan's image as an image of the whole card rather than just one CP/M partition. As reported, fixes to the emulation of the CF Identify command. I was just merging together these changes (done on Linux) with the Windows version to send to you, when I...

Re: Bootstrap and boot blocks

I am trying to make the CFX-II image work in MEMU. At present it is failing because it thinks LBA addressing is not supported :( LBA is actually the only addressing mode currently supported by the emulation. MEMU_Fuzix.png The CF emulation in MEMU is currently very minimal (just sufficient to suppor...

Re: Best text editor in CP/M

Thinking about it, one neat solution would be an MTX command to load a program from a text file. It should be fairly simple: * Read a line from file into keyboard buffer. * Call ROM routine to process line. * Repeat. If the lines don't start with line numbers then they would be executed immediately,...

Re: Best text editor in CP/M

You can write Basic programs in a text file and then use Andy's auto-type feature to import them into MEMU. The import process is a bit slow.

To do the reverse, use the -prn-file option in MEMU and then LLIST the file.

Re: Best text editor in CP/M

I also use Newword on MTX.

However, if using MEMU, why not use your Linux or Windows editor of choice and use Andy's CP/M file system interfaces CPMFuse or CPMCBFS to open and save the files to your CP/M image?
