Re: IRATA.ONLINE - A new PLATO system for retro computing fans!

Woah, interesting conincidence as I am just right now reading the book about that project. Now that begins to make sense as a special unique protocol otherwise it would be too obscure to have usecases. LInk to Amazon for those others interested, book "The Friendly Orange Glow: The Untold Story ...

Imagine browsing the directory as shown in my screenshot here: uiptool-example.png The textfile would contain line by line URLs like these: http://192.168.0.200/d/BACKUP/F030GAME.ZIP http://19...

If one knows the path on the Atari, a wget url can be constructed like this: http://falcon30.localnet/d/BACKUP/F030GAME.ZIP Accessing file D:\BACKUP\F030GAME.ZIP for download. I wish uip tool wo...

Is this PLATO thing connected to the project at the University Of Illinois starting in 1960?

Re: why use ASM anymore

Have you managed to find a development environment for ARM which shows you a cycle count for snippets of C code? As far as I remember, the Microchip development tools offer that facility. No but I normally don't dig that deep either. We use IAR compilers at my company. And yeah we went a bit offtop...

Re: why use ASM anymore

I learned assembly language for microcontrollers at a university course. I straightly went to apply the knowledge on the ST when Perihelion did his tutorials. I did some small full projects in assembly language but I soon focused on doing inlines for GFA until 2009 and since then I am combining it w...

i would love to learn assembly but not really sure where to start to be honest If you want to do this for the Atari ST, google for the Perihelion tutorials. ON a more generic base it is better to start it on microcontrollers like AVR or PIC. After getting the point for those, it is easy to grasp fo...

Re: why use ASM anymore

Spekaing for Ataris, if you want to get the job done and finished and 100% speed is not the main goal, using C is a much better way to go. This might be why Cubase has a whopping 2ms MIDI thru latency, and is incapable of driving more than one MIDI out at 8MHz. 2ms latency..wooohoo..you should team...

Yes, I agree. You have to be able to understand but not necessarily be able to code the whole application on that low level.

C is a fancy macro assembler - and the best mix is inbetween. Like This ? :) https://github.com/gibs75/demOS/blob/master/EXTERN/ARJDEP.C No certainly not in this fashion.

Re: why use ASM anymore

C is a fancy macro assembler - and the best mix is inbetween. Lowlevel stuffs need assembly language but noone sane (except Demo coders) really has the time left to do all our main logic stuffs in assembly language itself, just because it takes more time to develop and test. It is less relevant for ...

Re: The FPGA and non-Atari cores deserve the cover of this forum?

In general, I'm still pro-FPGA because diversity keeps a user base for the forum. I personally treat it as an oldschool BBS with slightly more content than just Atari. For me this is perfectly fine, my very own BBS would follow such a policy. Narrowminded single topic forums are quite a pest IMHO be...

As long as it is not offensive and flaming it it is ok and what we have the Non-Atari section for.
Just ignore it if it doesn't interest you.

That would be nice to have. There havebeen no reliable USB drivers for TOS sofar except for the single mouse driver.

OTOH I was toild that Netusbee was even not stable under MiNT...so I am wondering.

Will your TOS drivers work on STs aswell?
