Thread: Is there any easy way to port the UCSD-P System to a system like Micromint's SB180 ?

  1. Default Is there any easy way to port the UCSD-P System to a system like Micromint's SB180 ?

    Yes, I know, there is also a Z80 version of the UCSD system, but even this version does not run on a Z80 machine without modifications, think about the disk format for example.
    Is there any documentation available how to adapt the UCSD system to a "foreign" system - like the Alteration Guide of CP/M 2.2 ... ?
    I am not asking about a P-interpreter, because this seems to be solved easily. I am talking about the machine specific parameter (screen, disk access, disk format etc.).

    Default

    Have you tried the CP/M hosted version of P-System? That should hide all the disk issues and allow you to get to the program that defines things like terminal capability.

    IIRC, one of the volumes had a guide to designing bootstrap code customizations but I can't locate it. http://pascal.hansotten.com/ucsd-p-system/ucsd-files/ has a file called ADAP40.ZIP which seems similar to what you might want.

    Apologies for any mistakes on my part; I never did any adapting to new hardware.

    It seems you've found the right thing
    Inside the documentation, it is named "The full Adaptable System" (in Chapter IV.4, page 91). I would like to get a bootable UCSD system without the need for a "prebooted" CP/M.
