I was hoping for the source to the D9060/D9090 drives, so I could attempt to patch the drive geometry table and stick in an ST225 or similar, instead of the TM602S and similar. I have more D9060 cards than 5Mb drives. What I have been unable to determine so far is what hard drive this code is for. I found a reference to "one 8" floppy and one 8" hard drive". Perhaps this is for some CBM product that I have never heard of. > Maybe the code could be converted to a format understood by a freely > available assembler, such as DASM. I don't see a problem reformatting this code. The biggest problem I had when converting code from C='s assembler to dasm was macro syntax. If I find out anything interesting, I'll holler, otherwise, I expect to have something else interesting drift past to distract me. If the code for the D9060 appears, I'd *really* like to see it. I *will* port that to a modern assembler, just to see if I can make some changes. On a seperate disk-related note, the code to implement relative files is enormous and complex. Does anyone have a practical use for them except for toy database programs? -ethan - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
