SIO-2-PC 2.12

Written by Joe Kosman, ai019


I did get version 2.12 of sio2pc up and running.  The major changes
of this version over 2.9 which I had (the archives had 2.5) are that
you can put in a user defined delay time for the computer to
printer communication and you can directly read the directories
of Atari DOS 2.0 and 2.5 disks stored on your IBM system.  The
printer delay did not help my system.  I still must print from
the Atari to a disk file on the IBM and then copy this file with
the /b option to the printer connected to the IBM.  With this mode
it works all the time and may be a reflection of a compatability
problem of my 'IBM compatible' clone system.

I would encourage ANYONE with an IBM system and an Atari 8-bit to
seriously look into sio2pc.  It works great and really soups up
your Atari 8-bit system.  I easily in a session use both computers-
switching between each depending upon what I am doing.  The part I
like the best is that sio2pc had guaranteed me that I will be able
to enjoy Atari 8-bit software for a long time to come.  Plus, now I
can invest in my IBM system and some of those investments (disks,
printer) also upgrade my Atari 8-bit system at the same time.

Joe
