|New HP-71B emulator with HP-IL|
Message #1 Posted by J-F Garnier on 4 Nov 2003, 1:56 a.m.
I'm happy to announce a new version of my HP-71B emulator.
It features now a full HP-IL emulation with display, mass storage, printer and DOS interface devices.
Emu71 now gives direct access to LIF archives like the ones found on this site.
Please have a look at http://membres.lycos.fr/jeffcalc/emu71.html
It's still a text mode application (consistent with the HP-71B system look and feel)
and runs well in DOS or command box in Windows 95/98/NT,2000, etc...
Some of you may notice that this new Emu71 has some resemblance with the basic system on HP9000 computers.
It's not a true coincidence because: 1) I like very much HP9000 machines (I used a HP9845 during my first job),
2) Emu71 evolved like the 98xx serie by integrating the one-line display with a full screen display in a common device.
With the additional great JPCROM enhancement (available on my site) which provides structured programming
(REPEAT..UNTIL, SELECT...CASE, ...), the resemblance with RMB is even closer!
Like Emu41, basic Emu71 version is still freeware,
and I propose an extended version with real I/O capability (with HPIL/PC board) for a small free.
Best regards from France!
