In case it helps, please find below (with the remaining zero words elided,
a total of 512 words are needed) the prom.mem which results from compiling
the disk bootloader in BootLoad.Mod currently on Prof. Wirth's site.
--snip Zillion lines. ----------
This gives a nice example of *nix piping style aka concatenation, and why we
should make an extension to ETHO to achieve such, which would be much
easier to do, than eg. the existing <Scheme.Tool> & <Layla>.. etc.:-
FOR LinesInFile WriteOut |
FOR 4 HexChars DoEndian [only if needed, else omit this stage] |
<equivalent of *nix `dd` to File/prom.mem. [use existing drivers]
The output of stages 1 & 2 are simply manually/visually confirmed.
These kinds of tasks are what take all the time & effort.
Forget about the multi-core crap.
