Orgams - Easy Build

m_dr_m * 16 Feb 2019 11:16:08

As per popular demand by unpopular people, Orgams should help to generate any program in its final form, by just pressing one key or two.
Let's discuss that here and summarize the ideas there (There is already an example of a possible workflow).

BTW FTW YMMV, that's a perfect example where improving OrGams and finishing a project may take less time than just finishing the project!

The first scenario seems more realistic to start.

So the first question is: do you plan to release a version of CPC_T allowing to crunch a memory range instead of a file? Even if this new version is close from CPC_T 3.1 on the crunching side! The main drawback was: really slow when you are crunching a big file (more than 16k), especially the last method.

Everything with the X-MASS = instantaneous load/write!

« CPC_T allowing to crunch a memory range »

Yes this it planed with the next CPC_T this autumn around Christmas.
It would be pretty to do for the current version, but that doesn't seems urgent.

DOSes on X-Mass aren't quite instantaneous. Ramdisc and Romdisc might be useful as well.
That bring the question of how to access them. Offset had some vision about mounting, but I'm not sure how it would work from the user perspective.

Instantaneous compared to a Floppy disc? ^^
RAM Drive isn't too.. Just a little faster. But, who care?
ROM Drive is a strange idea, because the flash process took time and no DOS support it.
