I've just uploaded my life times Atari 8bit work (well some of it) onto
my WEB page located at:-

        Source code for an Atari 800, 800XL, 130XE and 5200 Emulator for
        UNIX, VMS and AMIGA.

        Amiga Binary for the above emulator.

        Disk image containing an unfinished version of the VCS Superman
        for the Atari 800 series. Includes GIF.

Alien Encounter
        Disk image containing a crap game (well by todays standards) I
        wrote in 1984/85. Sort of a cross between space invaders and
        centipede. Includes GIF.

UltraSpeed Copier 2.3
        Disk copier that uses the US Doubler Ultra Speed I/O. Copies
        Single, Duel and Double density disks. Can copy disks formatted
        without special format using Ultra Speed. Includes GIF.

1050 Menu 2.2
        Multiboot program written for the 1050 drive. Yes I know a
        lot of you prefer DOS files, but I've uploaded it for those
        that don't :-) Includes GIF.

Test Computer Language
        A small compiler I wrote in 1985/86 and used to write Enigmatix!
        published by Page 6. Compiles programs to DOS binary files or
        direct to a BOOT disk. Also contains a RUN mode which compiles
        and RUNs the program in memory. The language is block structured
        and supports procedures, functions, while loop, repeat until
        loops, if statements etc. The compiled code can be used in
        VBI and DLI Interrupts. WEB page contains semi-finished HTML
        User Guide (HTML not index correctly yet!) and a few example
        programs (Breakout, 8way scrolling, Interrupt driven music).
        Hopefully its not too low level for the remaining 8bit die
        hards ;-) This is probably not what you want if you've only
        used Atari BASIC. Includes GIF.

Oops, on reading this again it doesn't say what I meant :-( I wrote the
compiler and my *brother* used it to write Enigmatix! There my
conscience is clear now :-)

See ya
