Ang: RE: Re: CP/M programming for the C128?

Hej Ruud,

Okay, that's another way of doing it... But for me it's not an option, 
because I know even less about sending pulses over the serial cable to a 
drive than I know about CP/M... :-)


Hallo Mikael, 
> Then do the disk stuff in that mode and return to z80 CP/M when done... 
AFAIK that is the way how CP/M on a C128 accesses the drives. But I never 
understood why. The only reason I could think of is that it simplyfies 
programming by using existing code.
And even if CP/M used its own code, what would it matter. As long as you 
send the right sequences of pulses towards a C= drive, it doesn't care 
wether the origin is a 6510, Z80 or a 80x86. Just remember Star Commander.
