Projects / over5


Over5 is a program for transferring between c64/vic20 machines and Amiga/PC/UNIX boxes. It supports serial transfer at 38400 bps using only a RS-232 level converter and a 3-line standard nullmodem cable. No special serialport chips are needed. Source code is included. It features read/write/execute memory, filecopy with wildcards, read/write raw disk, read/write ZIPCODE archive, the ability to use the Amiga/PC/UNIX box as a harddisk server ($0801-$f600), builtin diskturbo, and a fast basic bootstrap for most cbm 8-bitters.
