Here are a couple of programs written using the GCC compiler tools available
for free from Cygnus. These programs
run from a command line prompt in either a windows DOS command prompt or
under the bash shell (also available in the Cygnus distribution). They
do require that the cygwinb19.dll file be
in the PATH in order to execute properly.
Serial line loader - imload.exe (320536)
Binary dissassembler (partially complete) - dis.exe (310579)
One useful feature of the imload.exe program is that by using the -info
option, the binary can be examined to determine if it is a 4-bit or 8-bit
file. The 4-bit files are typically long vector binaries and should only
be loaded into a long vector Imlac. Running a long vector program on a
short vector machine will burn out the short vector deflection amplifiers.
