Re: ZX 81 development on Linux. What tools?

Hi, I'm a Linux user, I would like if there's a tool setup for do the following: 1. Write Assembler code (or BASIC code) in a reasonable way and export the code to an emulator to test. 2. Export stuff from the emulator to a .tgz file (or a .p file) in order to get the stuff working in the ZX 81 Tha...

Re: Getting started - need toolkit!

I've started looking into this recently as well. For non-platform specific solutions, MS Visual Studio Code might be an option (runs on PC, Mac, Linux), and there's extensions available for Z80 programming. There's also a very capable development extension called DeZog that supports development with...

Re: Drop the PRINT instruction on ZX80

From what I remember seeing SHREB doing, it's usually formulated like: IF USR MC-ADDR THEN REM <stuff to parse or execute by MC routine> My guess is that the MC function then returns 0, meaning the THEN part never gets executed (which in this case it wouldn't, being a REM , but other tokens could be...

Re: Drop the PRINT instruction on ZX80

The command PRINT USR(30000) will come back with 30000. But I want to surpress the printing. How can I drop the PRINT instruction from the stack? Is there good textbook for MC programming on ZX80? Do you absolutely need to use PRINT ? Couldn't you do RAND USR 30000 ? I see now from your other post ...

I am working on a project and I need a windows font with the all the graphic characters. The ones I find do have the alphanumeric characters and their inverse but no graphic characters. You can find one in my project I wrote a while back: https://github.com/sebastienboisvert/ZX81QuickLook It also l...

macOS Quicklook plugin for ZX81 files

A while back I mentioned I was working on a Quicklook generator for ZX files; I've finally gotten around to finishing and releasing it. :D

You'll find it here on GitHub: https://github.com/sebastienboisvert/ZX81QuickLook.

Enjoy!
