PARRUN for PARCP-USB

Postby insane » Tue Oct 11, 2016 7:27 pm

Don't know if this is the correct board - but here goes nothing:

I've released PARRUN for PARCP-USB - this one allows you to transfer programs into your Atari's Memory and directly execute them without first needing to write to disk.
This means less space needed in RAM (half compared to a RAM-Disk solution with PARCP or EtherNEC+MiNT+NetCat into RAM) and NO writes onto the hard disk - which helps CF-based Drives.

You can get it at http://insane.tscc.de

I've personally been using it for my yoomp-st conversion (previewed at SillyVenture 2013, engine seen in http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=62121) as well as my worms-F060 conversion (previewed at OFAM 2015, to be released soon).

This allows you to type e.g. parrun main.tos instead of transfering using a custom parcp batch file or manual ethernec-scripts - the program will be transfered into RAM and directly executed - even acknowledging program flags.

You can also send a directory-to-be-switched-to on the commandline - e.g. "parrun d:/demo/wip main.tos" will change the ST's Directory to d:/demo/wip and then receive and execute the main.tos file.

Right now it's only available for Linux and TOS 1.04+/MiNT/Magic - Windows Port and maybe Mac Port depend on whether someone needs them.

Big thanks to Petr Stehlik for creating PARCP and PARCP-USB - PARRUN uses the PARCP Transfer Routines.

I hope that this'll help some other coders!

Very nice idea indeed. IIRC Leonard/Oxygene had something similar for RS232.

hey, hey inasane!

you have quite nice ports for CT60 !!! I never though that there will be so much games for Falcon with CT60!

Clever! Will definitely try this.

I've added another PARRUN-Variant. This allows 64kB/s on plain ST(e)
(A bit of loop unrolling, removing timeouts and writing to the ym2149 port direction register with fixed values)

get it at http://insane.tscc.de - needs parcp-usb cable!

Thanks! Would you be willing/able to look into the networking aspects of PARCP-USB? Plip or something like that. I know it's technically possible but I have no programming knowledge to tackle that.
