Hallo allemaal, A question: have you ever edited the Kernal of the C64 for your own purposes? If so, what source code did you use as base? So far I created most of source codes for various systems myself for the simple reason because they didn't exist. Think of the 1541, 8x50 and partly the 9060/9090. Those for the C64 were available but, IMHO, not very well documented. That was, until I ran into those of Lee Davison. Very well documented! So well that I decided to use them as base for my projects. Why shouldn't anyone profit of this fine code? My idea was, as group, to collect or to create for every system source codes and to store them at a central place like Bo's site or Google Code. So if someone wants to start a project and needs a documented source as base, he can download it there. And if someone finds an error or has an update, it only has to be updated at on place. A possible problem: the format of the sources. There exist various assemblers/compilers and most have their own format. How to deal with this? An idea is to create a basic file and a tool that should convert this basic file into the source code with the wanted format. Best would be using files with the format of the most used assembler as basic file (CA65 ???). I'm willing to lead this project but if someone else is interested, he is welcome to step in. As I prefer to use Google Code, co-moderators would be welcome anyway. What can YOU do? Don't worry, I won't ask you to start to disassemble binaries. I'll just ask you to donate what ever source code you have laying around and want to share with the public. If it isn't completely documented, no problem, maybe someone else will add the missing part. That's all. Any comment is welcome! -- Kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet, Ruud Baltissen www.Baltissen.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2014-11-10 22:00:03
