CP/M programs you use.
« on: 13:02, 03 May 21 »
Apart from DR LOGO or TurboPascal, do you happen to kick a CP/M session for other programs?

Ohm this? https://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Fabacom_(FAst_BAsic_COMpiler)? Interesting!
I guess it works better than the Amsdos counterparts?
What are the drawbacks?

Hmm, did not test any other yet ... Drawbacks ? Well these commands are not supported : AUTO, CHAIN, CHAIN  MERGE,  CONT,  DELETE,  EDIT,  LIST,  LOAD (BASIC program),MERGE, RENUM, RESUME NEXT, SAVE (BASIC program), TROFF, TRON


... and the resulting BIN files is significant bigger 1KB basic ~ 17KB bin

I've used NSWP a few times over the last few years to unsqueeze 17K screens from 30 year old disks.

That's because they make no sense in a compiled program.

Well, I use neither one of them but:
- Z3Plus
- BD04
- NS
- OS  ;D  ... rather often compared to others

Z3Plus starts the ZCPR system for CP/M Plus. That's a topic as big as Unix (because it's close to that).
NS is a quick & comfortable copy, (un)compress, program
BD04 is a tool to analyze (and mark, as exclude form usage) bad blocks / files on a disc.

Ok, If finally found time to compile a list of the CP/M programs I use:

1. Format

I can provide the list as an Excel file too if required. :)

Hi, CHAIN, MERGE or equivalent make sense in Turbo Pascal v3. The way TP3 use Overlay is clever and efficient. You can very easily keeps all the datas in RAM and just change the code with the OVERLAY key word.

Chain Merge could make sense for compiled overlays.

I use sometimes some C compiler on CPM.
