Hallo Marko,

CBM=HD writes the data directly to the wanted position.

Borland/Turbo Pascal 7.0

As always. Is even available now.

Be my guest. Theoretically it should run under FPC, Free Pascal Compiler,
for LINUX. And if someone is willing to translate it to C, I certainly would
like that and help him with it.

Nick, what about a combination of 64HDD and CBM-HD ???

I'm very sure of it. CBM-HD originates from PC-Disk that was meant for the
IEC-bus. I needed about an hour to implement the various IEEE dependant
routines to turn it into CBM-HD. That I then ran into a lot of other
problems is another story; but the communication on itself worked.

To be more precise, ByteIn and ByteOut are the only two hardware dependant
routines. Then here and there you'll see that some checks for ATN are still
hardcoded. But I already made a start to turn them into a function so that
in the future there is only one place I have to edit hardware items
regarding ATN.
