I never used this serial link stuff. No Oberon-0, no PClink... Much too much hassle.
My build process is built around a module called ISO.Mod; this module writes an ISO image that can be burnt onto the SD card.
- I can copy Oberon files from and to the disk image.
- I can look at the Oberon directory in the disk image
- I can write the Oberon boot sector
- I can look at the MBR s needed.
Basically, what System does but on the ISO disk image

Prof. Wirth built the system by meticulously transferring everything
across the RS232 link, using a special Inner Core imported by a simple
command interpreter on the RISC5 called Oberon0. See section 14.1 of
Since this process depended heavily on another Oberon system on a host
computer, I made some rather hacky cross-tools to build a downloadable
SD-card image for projectoberon.com.
I explained some of the (mainly defensive) rationale for the format of
the RISC.img image in a previous post:
