I've often wanted a adaptor that would allow me to hook up any kind of small single board computer that has an IO pin breakout to the atari. Some way to map the pins into the memory space, and read and write to them. Boards like the Arduino's and the raspberry pi's, for instance. Seems like you could do an awful lot with an interface like that. SIO and so forth really is just too slow for anything other than emulated disk Drives.
Hi folks. Well, I have a situation where I need to switch between, say, 2 banks of status variables.
status_reg_1: .res 2
count_reg_1: .res 2
status_reg_2: .res 2
count_reg_2: .res 2
I need to be able to switch code accessing these variables from one to the other depending on another setting, without having to have separate code. The only way I could figure out was to set up a zero page 'base' register and use (indirect),y to access the variables. When I want block 1 I put block 1's address in there, when I want block 2 I put block 2's. Is this really the only choice?
Hi Folks. I've made some good progress lately converting the IP65 stack. Attached is a ATR that has the latest software on it.
DHCPTEST.COM : does a DHCP request and prints out the config info. ETHDUMP.COM : goes into promiscuous mode and dumps some header info on each packet it sees. PING.COM : standard ping program, args are dns or ip to ping and the count of pings you want. TELNET.COM : a semi-finished telnet client. Args are dns or ip to contact and port to contact on. I've had luck with using several BBS's, notably these : The Boot Factory telnet://bfbbs.dtdns.net Dark Force BBS (Run on a Mega 2 ST) telnet://darkforce-bbs.dyndns.org
The TELNET client is pretty primitive as of yet, doesn't do a lot of ANSI handling or special character conversions, so you can get some kind of messy screens, but works well enough to get on a bbs and mess around.
I will post new stuff in this thread as I get it developed.
Please let me know if you have any issues using these.
