Hallo Claus,

No, only my own interfaces. The funny thing is, integrating my interfaces 
wasn't the problem. The problem was to find where to integrate them. SC is 
written in Turbo Vision, an event driven Turbo Pascal. And no form to guide 
you like in Delphi.

Nope, everything is really hardware orientated. For example I have routines 
like ByteOut, ByteIn, AtnLoIEEE, NrfdLo, EoiHi etc. The source coming with 
my IEEE card only enable you to give complete commands like OPEN, GET etc. 
This is one of the reasons I haven't integrated that card. Another reason: 
It makes no sense to write SW for a card hard to find (IMHO).

To make things promising, the most simple version is my basic cable plus 
three diodes, some resistors and three transistors.

Ehhhh? What isn't stable? My SW is AFAIK.

The code is quite complete. OK, certain things are impossible like M-E; it 
is an simulator, not an emulator. I can even use the DOS-partition but then 
commands like setting the track/sector cannot be used anymore. What I'm 
working on yet is to be able to use Commodore names under DOS.
