ZxLink is a multipurpose utility that lets you hook up your
ZX Spectrum 48K/128K/+3 (8-bit home computers made by
Sir Clive Sinclair)
to an Unix machine. It is intended for those who prefer "the real thing"
instead of emulators. Exchange of Spectrum programs via Internet is easier
today than on the ancient times. ZxLink will help some Speccy owners to enjoy
these new resources.
ZxLink handles sound and serial up- and downloading. The current version is
only able to download raw binary, tape (.TAP/.TZX) and snapshot (.SNA/.Z80)
files. Planned for the future:
- Backup tapes to hard disk in .TAP format
- Backup cartridges to hard disk in .MDR format
- Backup +3 disks to harddisk in .DSK format
At the moment ZxLink is known to work on the following machines/ operating
|Sparc||Solaris, SunOS 4.x, Linux|
|Mips||SVR4, SGI Irix|
|IBM RS6000||AIX 3.2.x|
More information about ZxLink including porting information, command line
options, and other useful stuff, can be found in the ZxLink documentation.
I'm sorry for being unable to maintain an HTMLized version.
If you would like to extend ZxLink, port it to a new system, add features,
etc., please contact me by email or some other means.
