Atari Developer's Kit - DISK_2 recovery

Post by tcat »

Hi,

Anyone can supply DISK_2 of the ATARI_DK set?
It used to be distributed to ATARI developers as part of the agreement, I believe. The copy I have got is corrupt so is the one at ATARI dev-doc site.

Many thanks in advance

Hi,

I was able to recover DOODLE.RCS file of the DISK_2.

I found a utility STCREATE.C on the same disk, also corrupted, but I somehow managed to figure out the missing parts of the code, also corrected some pointer checking errors in the original.

I run this utility on DOODRSC.C file, containg application resource definitions, encoded in C structures. This file was not corrupted.

In the end I got DOODLE.RCS reconstructed.

I had to learn to run Alcyon C, which is 3 pass compiler that compiles to assembly code, so the last step to get an object file is to run an assembler.

All 4 steps are automated by a batch, C.BAT - user can run by clicking a batch interpreter BATCH.TTP, from GEM.

To compile STCREATE.C utility program, one would then type,
C STCREATE

The compilation ends by a quite funny message,
Waiting for Mr. Goodcarriage return...
