Two days ago I decided to enhance c2n, the C2N232 tape emulator device
driver program, with the ability to convert raw cassette files to PCM
sound samples.  Yesterday my test of recording a PCM stream from c2n via a
stereo set connected to the computer's headphone output succeeded: I was
able to load the recorded program from the tape in a VIC-20.  I didn't
test other platforms (PET, C64, C128, plus/4), but I think that they
should work also via this interface.

I'm not yet releasing the C2N232 tape emulator device to the public, since
I'm still working on a custom transfer protocol.  The schematic diagram,
board layout and the firmware source code are available on request.

But as the driver software has now found useful application without the
device, I have decided to release it.  You can find the programs at the
following places:


An Amiga version will be released shortly.


I created the Windows versions on Linux and didn't test the binaries.  
The Windows version of C2N does not include RS-232 routines.  Ports to
non-POSIX platforms are welcome.
