I don't remember two versions of Squid's Barcode ROM, but I know there are two versions of Squid's Extended IL ROM - I have a preliminary version, in ROM image only of course (you have it as well, don't you :-)

My (supposed to be) preliminary version has a few differences in the catalog, the ROM header is different, there is no "PRINT FCNS" header and the order of the printer functions is different:

-EXT IL1A
CLRBUF
DIRLEFT
DIRSIZE
NAMEMED
READBUF
READCAL
READXM
RECLEFT
SCOPYFL
SCREATE
SDIR
SNEWM
SWRTA
SWRTK
SWRTP
SWRTPV
SWRTS
WRTBUFX
WRTCAL
WRTXM
PRTAID
X>AR
ATOBUFX
MCLIST
MCPRP
SACA


Checksum=123 (hex)

However, apart from the historical interest, I don't think it is needed to include the two versions in a module library.

I agree with that J-F, specially if one seems to be a superset of the other. I think the image I have I got from TOS, so it's available to anyone for download as well.

Now if those other ones still shared would surface... but not good prospects I'm afraid.

RE: 41 Module Library: Last chance for common sense
I am almost sure there once was a second Squid's Barcode ROM for another printer. But to find out I should scann through many old PPC issues. (Are there OCRed PDFs of them?)

An other point, related to Squid too, and also IIRC: he once suggested a fix of a "Devil's" bug which even could fit in some blank space of this ROM.

Sorry for not pointing to the article in PPC but telling something from weak memory.

Ciao.....Mike

the article title was 'Debugging the Devil", and yes I patched my copy of the module appropriately ;-) It's true this module is half empty, which is handy to add more stuff to it not only the Skwid patch. Mine has a ton of stuff from the EXT-IO so I onlu need one module most of the time.

The patch was a replacement for the OS [BCDBIN] routine, which caused issues in functions RREG, WREG and OUTBINY.

That would be Volume 11, Number 5, Page 6 (June, 1984).

So one point of my weak memory is confirmed, thank you. Now it's up to me to find evidence for the second version of the Barcode ROM. Grrr... (who may contact Squid?)

RE: 41 Module Library: Last chance for common sense
It's that time of the year again... and to celebrate it what a better toy than a new ROM image?
And loyal to my proposal - here it is for everybody's enjoyment...

Here you have it, the HANDY COMPACT ROM in all its glory.
BTW the manual was already available at TOS

Now if only other folks would follow suite... but altruism isn't the sign of the times, I get it.

Best,

Many thanks, Ángel, I've been looking for that ROM for a long time!

I saw it for sale somewhere. Didn't buy it.

I keep hoping whoever did get it turns up here, hence the reminder about it's existence.

RE: 41 Module Library: Last chance for common sense
So, Angel - I'm back from holiday and sawyour post.... Yes, we discussed before, we know:

So let's make "Butter bei die Fische", as we german speaking people say: What is missing in your collection. I will gently have a look at my collection and will write down the pürice I had to pay for these modules. If I'm correct we had in the past once a person, woh spread it's source / software for a fixed ammount the community has to gather. I'm open to share my modules, but I would like to get back a part of my investment.

Obviously the meaning of the word "sharing" is lost in the translation. Last time I looked it up in the dictionary it didn't say anything about paying - in any shape or form.
