Mastering ADF/HDF Images with xdftool

My Amiga cross development environment on my Mac is getting really useful now: with vamos running the SAS C compiler I can create Amiga binaries with ease. With the binaries in place I want to try them on the real machine, too. For my trusty old Amiga 500, I still use disks to transfer the . . . → Read More: Mastering ADF/HDF Images with xdftool

Building a “real” Project on vamos running SAS C

In the last post I showed you that vamos is already able to call the SAS C Compiler 6.58 and compile some example source files. In the last few days I added the missing parts to vamos to support smake, too. Namely, calling sub processes with SystemTagList() was added and lots of bugs fixed.

Running the Amiga SAS C 6.58 compiler with vamos

Well, the vamos project is progressing really, really well… And while I’m working at bringing more and more native Amiga tools to life on my Mac, I almost overlooked the first major milestone (and actually its primary initial goal) of the project: running the SAS C Compiler…

This posts interrupts the rather technical series of . . . → Read More: Running the Amiga SAS C 6.58 compiler with vamos

Inside vamos (Part 2)

Today we continue our little journey through my newest project and have a look at libraries and structures in the “virtual” Amiga RAM of vamos.

vamos runs Amiga CLI programs on my Mac

I did some classic m68k Amiga code development that uses the SAS C compiler recently (see plip2slip). Everything was set up in a P-UAE-based AmigaOS 3.9 environment and worked fairly confortable. While switching between TextMate on my Mac I used for editing the code and the CLI window in P-UAE I had a thought: “It . . . → Read More: vamos runs Amiga CLI programs on my Mac

SilverSurfer patched for Amiga 500

I just purchased a new HW goodie for my classic Amiga 500. A clockport adapter and a SilverSurfer serial card that allows high baudrates (e.g. 115200 baud) on this machine without generating too much CPU load.

HW installation was fairly easy, but with the software the trouble began… The supplied drivers does not run on . . . → Read More: SilverSurfer patched for Amiga 500

plip2slip 0.1 released

While playing with my A500 recently, I had the idea to try out the TCP Stacks available for this platform. Since the little Amiga lacks a decent ethernet card I had to get along with the internal serial port and a SLIP connection. With 9600 Baud this is very slooow. So I kept on searching . . . → Read More: plip2slip 0.1 released

vbcc 0.9b: An Amiga Cross Compiler for Mac OS X

 

On my neverending quest to have a powerful cross compiler for m68k Classic Amiga (i.e. OS <= 3.x) for my Mac I had a closer look on the fresh new release of Volker Barthelmann’s C Compiler.

In this post I’ll describe how to install this nice piece of code on your machine in a . . . → Read More: vbcc 0.9b: An Amiga Cross Compiler for Mac OS X

DICE 3.15 revisited on Mac

DICE (Matt Dillon’s C Compiler Environment) was one of the first C compiler I came in touch with back in the days on my A500. Recently,while scanning the Net for a m68k Amiga Cross Compiler solution for my Mac I stumbled across the source code release of DICE by Matt himself…
