Re: ACSI interfacing

What kind of media it will be accessing, if I may ask? the device will be a simple experiment, with a PIC uC as controller and a flash nand for storage (a backed up sram for early tests). You should not focus on being AHDI compatible, or 'ACSI commands' compatible. You should try to be SCSI-2 compa...

ACSI interfacing

Hello at all, I'm trying to build a device that will be connected to the ACSI port, a kind of "ACSI thumbdrive" that will be compatible with AHDI. I'm reading ATARI ACSI/DMA Integration Guide as reference and it leaves me with some questions: - Which is the exact number of ACSI commands? a...

Re: Hard disk interfacing

I' ve still to decide which Nand i'll use (maybe i'll use a small backed up sram for early tests), anyway i'm going to adpot a 8bit wide databus IC. Solder directly some spaghetti of wire all around the ST mainboard can make me achieve a faster transfer rate, but i want to use the acsi to avoid this...

Hi folks ;-)

Is there any command line interface with the "eye-comfortable" color scheme of the DOS (grey on black)?

If you want to use c++, you may try to cross compile with this:

It's built for cygwin, and works fine for me.

Not exactly a cross compiler, but emulators such as Steem are nice for cross development. You can use your favorite Windows (or Linux) editor concurrently. And you can fast forward Steem for fast compile times on large projects. humm... the c compilers that run natively on the st are quite uncompat...

Cross Compiling

Hi,

Is there any gcc version (and the related libc) that can compile directly for the st? For "directly for the st", i mean directly for TOS, not for Mint or any other kind of systems.

thanks
