Updates/Additions to downloads on the Support Page (10/3/13)

Postby AltairClone » October 3rd, 2013, 10:20 am

The following updates and additions have been made to the files available through the Altair Clone Support page:

CP/M 2.2 Folder: The BIOS in all disk images has been configured for 8N2 on serial ports instead of 8N1. This allows operation of CP/M 2.2 with a Teletype as the console.

CP/M 1.4 Folder: Added a disk image of an original CP/M 1.41 distribution disk. This disk served as the starting point for the end user to create their own CP/M disks by using MOVCPM and SYSGEN to modify the RAM size of CP/M and then write the CP/M boot sectors to a disk.

CP/M 1.4 Folder: Updated the other CP/M 1.41 disk image to replace the ADM-3A version of Word Master (WM) with a VT-100 compatible version of WM. Word Master is useful full-screen editor that can be used for editing program source files. Most terminal emulators support VT-100 control codes, but not the ADM-3A control codes.

BASIC Floppy Disk Folder: Updated the Time Sharing BASIC disk image to include more BASIC programs.

A WordStar 3.0 disk has been added in the CP/M 2.2 folder. This disk image boots a 63K CP/M 2.2, but it could also be used as a drive B: with a CP/M 1.4 boot disk.

The WordStar disk includes the INSTALL.COM program to allow modification of terminal type, printer type, communication parameters, patches, etc. The SpellStar overlay is also present.

Two WordStar manuals have also been uploaded to the "Altair and CP/M Manuals" section.
