For those interested the original article was to connect one 64 with a MAE assembler or PAL assembler to a test 64 system, with the proper (recieve) routines and assembler patches loaded -the developer could then assemble code directly to the test system's memory to speed development/debugging time. > OK, so it's not the most amazing idea ever, but > I think it does form a suitable basis on which to network large numbers of > Commodores together. > > Richard > > - > This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. > To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org. -- 01000011 01001111 01001101 01001101 01001111 01000100 01001111 01010010 01000101 Larry Anderson - Sysop of Silicon Realms BBS (209) 754-1363 300-14.4k bps Classic Commodore pages at: http://www.jps.net/foxnhare/commodore.html 01000011 01001111 01001101 01010000 01010101 01010100 01000101 01010010 01010011 - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
