Thread: Software for CP/M-68k

  1. #1

    Default Software for CP/M-68k

    Hi everybody!

    I am looking for any Software that could run on CP/M-68k.
    Currently, I have only the OS including the C-Compiler. After some research on the web, I have found CBASIC compiler, a forth package, some minor command line tools and Memacs. Does anybody have anything else?

    In detail, I would highly appreciate to have
    - a basic interpreter
    - I know that there was a Z80/CPM-80 Emulator
    - anything else (application software, games,...)

    Thanks a lot and best regards
    Stephan

    CP/M-68K was popular among certain CNC manufacturers for a time, so there's that software, but if you're hoping for games, probably not. I also have some CP/M-68K floppies for an electron microscope.

    would be better to ask on the comp.os.cpm newsgroup

    The best thing would be to look for disk images from a vintage computer that ran CP/M 68K.

    I think I saw a similar post from the OP on a German website that had SAGE II in his post. My first suggestion would have been a SAGE II as I remember that beast from my youth - but you may have already beaten me to it...

    There seems to be some disk images (utilities etc.) here: http://oldcomputers.dyndns.org/publi...age_disks.html.

    There is also a disk image for a collection of programs and utilities in 'C' here: http://www.cpm.z80.de/source.html.

    More here? http://www.uxpro.com/cpm/www.cpm.z80.de/binary.html.

    There is the source for a 68K BASIC interpreter (but not for CP/M) here: https://github.com/jefftranter/68000...master/ehbasic.

    It may be possible for you to modify this for use with your CP/M 68K implementation if you can find a compatible assembler for the source?

    Just some thoughts...

    The old pre-Usenet groups indicate that there were partially working implementations of Kermit and XLisp and a simple database for CP/M-68k. I can't find any place that has any of them; the places listed to download have gone out of business 20 years ago.

    Yes, this is where spiceminer came from and has his sage II on his knees. So I believe he didn't found some general programming software in the sage archives you talk about.

    That's what I thought !

    Of course, if you have CP/M 68K running and a C compiler - you can download the source for SIMH and you should be able to get a whole range of emulators running on your machine - PDP-8, PDP-11, Z80... etc. etc. etc. May take a little bit of 'tweaking' for CP/M 68K - but that's half the fun isn't it?!

    I never had any interest in the Atari ST, but didn't that computer run cp/m 68k?
