Hi, As Groepaz said, i did conio lib friday. Groepaz was trying to compile his tetris with my conio.s. > * A hacked write() function that makes printf usable, similar to the one > that has been available on the CBMs before. I did it also last year, but never released it. I have lot's of unreseleased stuff on the Oric. > * A clock() function. It is 16 bit only, and I don't have an idea, which > value CLOCKS_PER_SEC should take, so there's room for improvements. I'll try to see > Things that are not available: > > * File I/O (I have not the slightest idea how to use disks on the Atmos) Well it's difficult to do it. disk routines does not exists in Atmos. You have to own a floppy disk (with controller) and an operating system (sedoric). The operating system is in $c000 (Ram overlay) and rom is at $c000. It just means that in the atmos/oric-1 you have ROM and ram at the same adress (You can consider that as a bank, you can select this bank with a floppy disk controller register. I did routines for reading/writing sectors on the Oric. > * Colors. If you thought, colors on the Atari are weird, please have a > look at the Oric. Colors are *really* crazy on this platform. > Yes that is why i said that it's difficult to have common libs for atmos Please see that for informations: http://www.defence-force.org/computing/oric/coding/part_7/index.htm You should try to see this demo (released at alternative party 2003) to see some graphics on the oric (use euphoric and not xeuphoric for that): http://www.oric.org/index.php?page=software&fille=detail&num_log=1516 >If you want to > use the binary on a real machine, you will have to remove the tape > header.

Well this tap header is really the real header for real machine (When you load from a tape, it's really this header). If you use a disk controller, you have to remove this header. Thanks PS : I am doing atomic (katomic a linux game) with cc65 on the Oric.. so please don't say me tomorrow that you did it this night :-P -- Debrune Jérôme http://www.oric.org ---------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe from the list send mail to majordomo_at_musoftware.de with the string "unsubscribe cc65" in the body(!) of the mail.
