I'm about to release cbmlink 0.9.5 soon. It'll support the C2N232 on the Amiga, and I'd like to fully support FreeBSD and MS-DOS as well. (GNU/Linux, MS-Win32 and Mac OS X are already supported.) I'd like to have some beta testers who could confirm whether the parallel cables (PC64, native prlink, Frank Kontros' cable) work on FreeBSD (both via the parallel port device and via direct I/O access) and MS-DOS derivatives (PC-DOS, FreeDOS). I solved some problems there were with the MS-DOS version of cbmlink. The compiler I'm using doesn't know about the #elif preprocessor directive, it's line counter is buggy, and its assembler requires immediate operations to be flagged explicitly, and its linker prefers to crash instead of complaining about undefined symbols. But it's free and open source. :-) Luckily I now have a test environment (dosemu+FreeDOS on my Debian GNU/Linux system), but I'd like to know if the program works on other versions of DOS. In particular, I'd like to see if the ctrl-break flag (bit 7 at 40:71) works everywhere. (Yes, you can interrupt transfers also on DOS!) Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
