These x86 tools are a collection of free software I have collected together with some scripts to allow them to be easily used.
These tools are intended to allow a relative beginner to compile simple programs that will compile to multiple PDP-11 destination systems.
All compilation is done with 'R11' via a set of batch files (found in \Utils\R11).... and a copy of Notepad++ is provided for code editing
Code can be easily assembled via Notepad++ by pressing F6 to use NppExec, and selecting one of the destinations... the appropriate batch file will be executed building the program, and the emulator started
Please use these tools at your own risk.
They are provided freely in the hope they will be of use, and have been tested to the best of my ability but I cannot test in all situations or guarantee they will not harm your computer in some unexpected way.
These tools have been tested on Windows 10, Windows 7 64 bit, and Windows XP 32 bit
With the exception of AkuSprite Editor, MsxHeader and PlusThreeHeader and the scripts and examples I did not write the tools provided in this kit - to my knowledge, all the tools in here are Free and open source, and there is no reason they cannot be redistributed - if you know otherwise, please notify me and I will take appropriate action to resolve the issue.
Extract the files from the archive into a folder on your machine - you need to preserve the directory structure
To start run "Mdrive.bat" this will create a virtual M drive on your machine... if M is in use, N or O will be ued.
From that R drive use "Notepad++" to edit
when you are done use "Mdrive-remove" to remove the M drive
Please see my Youtube channel for more examples of how to use these tools.
