The latter will only let you trace but have run
control to stop or do other actions (dump rom and memory spaces). Sometimes there are
tricks to dump the memory space w/o ICE, but still nice to have an idea what is going on
and being able to dump registers, etc.
This is what I?m after, also being able to walk the RAM space or single step one of my RAM
testing ROMs that I?ve put together. I?d love to be able to put together a RAM/ROM style
board in the same vein as Dave Curran?s PET RAM/ROM board, still learning the skills
required to be able to do that though.
If you are after bit rot, however it might be nice to
Very much this, but bit rot caused by battery rot.
I am guessing you put up the same complaint over on
Do you have any parts of the MDS, or were you looking
for the entire rig with the 8085 ICE? A friend has a ton of parts from a scrapping
operation eon ago, could check with him if you have a working MDS to see if he has any
complete ICE for that.
Unfortunately not, and given the price that they go for these days I?m very unlikely to
get one. I don?t yet have a need to access the full ISIS development suite used to build
the Executel software, but being able to read the source code would be very handy in
watching the machine working with the LA, I?ve found quite a few faults with them between
the analyser and scope.
Keir Fraser?s Greaseweazle should be capable of reading 8? floppies and the tools are
available to translate the output file into a working disk image I can extract the source
files from - the floppies look to have been kept in a reasonable environment and haven?t
gone obviously mouldy yet.
