MOD File definition

Post by MeinKuipers »

While working on a big update on the M2kM software (where MOD files can be edited) I noted that a MOD file contains a field for describing specific hardware requirements for a ROM (HP-IL, HEPAX, etc). Is there now a definition for DM41X? Or 41CL?

I don't know of any actual impact derived from those settings, I always considered them to be informative only.

I use some of the hardware field in my Nut debugger.

The debugger consults the loaded module files to see what hardware should be enabled. At least this is done for the timer chip and RAM.

Some additional 41CL related stuff are enabled using command line option (extended RAM and NEWT CPU). Such support is at the moment very limited (there is no real 41CL style memory system, turbo or MMU support).
