Yeah. Very nice.

May I make a suggestion? You have implemented control of the USB HxC Floppy Emulator via a webpage. How about controlling the USB HxC Floppy emulator using the host? Via an equivalent of the HxC Floppy Emulator Manager? That would make the system headless.

Actually thinking about it, perhaps that would be too much work. People who want that functionality could use the SD card version.

Where can we find the software for the RPi ?
Just to make sure this would work with HxC Rev C ?

For the Rev C ? This is just the normal software :

http://sourceforge.net/projects/hxcfloppyemu/

Just checkout this on the RPi
http://sourceforge.net/p/hxcfloppyemu/code/HEAD/tree/

and add fltk http://www.fltk.org/index.php (1.3.x) into the "HxCFloppyEmulator_software\trunk\sources\thirdpartylibs\fltk\fltk-1.3.x" folder

enter the "build" folder and do a "make all"

You may need to add some X11 devel library (some apt-get to do...)

Note : All plateforms share the same hxc software : Windows, PC Linux , Rpi Linux (or other Linux board), Mac Os X...
You can also get the latest pre compiled version there :
http://hxc2001.com/download/floppy_driv ... t_beta.zip (Windows + Mac OS X)

Thanks I will look at that.
Stupid question: Do you think it would be possible / easy to add the RPi Web server software on Jookie CosmosEx device?
So just connect the USB HxC on one of the USB port of the RPi in CosmosEx and be able to control it from Web!

This shouldn't be a problem : This is just some CGI scripts and programs calling the command line version of the hxc software (hxcfe).
the server used is lighthttpd

I guess you also need a driver for HxC USB ?

You can use this same library to access and control the SuperCard Pro board, as it uses the FTDI 240X FIFO chip.
