Subject: KERMIT 4.11 Installation (Help Wanted)
After reading the post that KERMIT had just been re-released for
CP/M, I downloaded all the files that looked appropriate from
watsun..., and that's quite a few! About 500KB of cp*.asm and cp*.hlp,
with a few stray items still sitting on our file system waiting
to be brought down. (I got some reading in last night, even at
2400 Bd. [8*>)
I last assembled KERMIT in v.3.1, which was a single, fairly managable
package: I edited in the controls for my terminal, and built the *.com
with ASM and LOAD. This looks like a _quite_ different proposition,
requiring separate assemblies, linkage, and (maybe) building a library,
overlays, help files, ???.
Has anyone out there put this package, or another recent, similar
release together? I would like to know:
(1) Which modules do I _not_ need?
(2) Where are the hardware- and terminal-dependent parts buried?
(3) What is a good assembly and linkage sequence?
(4) I also ftp'd two hex files: kernel and generic sections. How do
I patch them together (ddt?), and what functions will I have/
not have in the generic hex patch?
I expect to use M80 and L80 to accomplish the assembly and link, as
they are mentioned in the kernel source header, and I have them.
Been a _long_ time since I tried to _use_ them, tho... [8*(.
Thanks in advance.
Respond e-mail, I guess, since this may not be of very wide interest.
Similarly, I'll forward the most pertinent responses on request to
anyone else at the level of (knowledge:ignorance) to want them.
