These utilities allow you to get programs off your old audio cassettes
and into your computer, or vice-versa. Naturally, this will require
a cassette player, a suitably configured sound card and cabling
between the two.
|ZX81TAP||Transfers actual ZX81 tape audio into .TAP or .SNA emulator format (depending upon your chosen emulator). This program is actually a Spectrum .SNA file. You load it into your emulator, run it, then use the emulator's audio-reading capability through the sound card to actually read in the ZX81 program from your cassette.|
|TSCon3.3||Reads in a ZX81 program played into your PC's sound and create a .P file|
|ZXTAPE||Loadsd a .P file directly into your ZX81 via your PC's Centronics parallel port and the use of a simple 2-wire cable (PC's parallel port to ZX81's EAR socket).|
These utilities convert program files or BASIC program listings from one file format into another.
|P-to-81||Converts a .P file into a .81 file, suitable for running in some ZX81 emulators|
|ZXText2P||Converts a DOS text file (containing a BASIC listing) into a .P file, ready for loading into an emulator|
|P2Txt||Converts a .P file to stdout as a listing. Usage example: p2txt myfile.p >mylisting.txt|
|ZX81List||Converts a .P file to a text file. Usage example: ZX81list myfile.p mylisting.txt|
|ZXAS||Converts a ZX81 assember listing into a text file. Usage example: ZXAS myasm.l outfile.txt|
|SpecPrint||Allows you to view and/or print BASIC listings from the ZX Spectrum (And since version 0.0.0.2 ZX81). Simply save a snapshot from your favourite emulator and load it into SpecPrint. SpecPrint retains all attributes contained in the listing including foreground colour, background colour, bright, flashing, inverse etc. It also uses a font similar to the original machine containing all the block characters and grey blocks of the ZX81.|
These tools can be used to develop software programs for the ZX81.
|MCODER2||The original compiler for Sinclair BASIC on the ZX81, written by David C. Threlfall, and published by PSS (Personal Software Services) in 1983.|
|Minesweeper||Recoded by one of the ZX-TEAM members (Bodo) to be compilable in MCODER2. This file contains both the original uncompiled Minesweeper and the compiled one - too fast to run under the XTender emulator.|
|Toolkit||A very usefull tool for BASIC programmers, comes in a 16K and a 64K version together with a brief instruction. Will run under ZX81 emulator XTender as well.|
