Serial Slave is a system that allows you to use a PC as a virtual disk drive for your C64. It communicates using RS-232 and doesn't require any custom hardware. The PC server also runs well under multitasking operating systems, so you don't have to dedicate a machine to running Serial Slave. Serial Slave is fast: 3.8 kB/s with a SwiftLink, 11.5 kB/s with a Turbo232, and even 23 kB/s with a SuperCPU if your PC supports 230400 baud. Requirements 1. A Commodore 64 2. A SwiftLink or Turbo232 interface 3. A null modem serial cable 4. A PC or a workstation with a serial port 5. Perl 5.x with the Win32::SerialPort or Device::SerialPort module installed Features * Use the PC as a virtual hard drive * Mount D64s and use as a virtual 1541 * Load URLs - even mount D64s over TCP/IP Download Get Serial Slave 0.6 from http://come.to/life/ This is the first beta release. Expect rough edges and general funkiness. Be sure to drop me a mail and let me know if it works. -- ___ . . . . . + . . o _|___|_ + . + . + . .
