Useful tools

Here are some tools that I have written that may be useful for working with George 3:

A PERL script to write a NEWCOPYOUT tape from a Linux system. Allows copying of NORMAL (upper/lowercase) files from Linux to George. Can be used to avoid problems with the bugs in the g3ee tape reader emulation.

The script can be found here:


A PERL script to be used instead of telnet. Does more exact character code translations, working around the strange coding used for the pound sign.

Works at its best with a version of the ICL 7903 emulator that has been modified not to strip control characters.

The script can be found here: iclterm.

Compare - dumb text file comparison

A simple text file comparison program written in Ratfor: compare.rat.
