10 December 2001, 01:46
Ok I finaly found a place were I can get a 2M null modem cable (£1.50, pitty the minimum order is £25) and im going to have the chance to get my Amiga hooked up to my PC over x-mas, but to do the null modem transfer I need to write a small programe in Amiga Basic (so the FAQ + How To tells me) It should be on the Extras disk but I cant find it (im using WB 2.05) can any one help?

It should be on Extras 1.3 disk 2.05 does not have it.

Alternatively, if you dont have access to the 1.3 disk, you can also use TwinExpress. Its on Aminet I think.

Thanks guys but I have no way of getting stuff of my PC and onto my amiga, Akira is going to send me Crossdos some time so hopefully I can try it out then.

Could you modify the code to run under AMOS/Blitz Basic ?
I think I will have the same problem - you need an Amiga PC-disk-reading/transferring ap to be able to transfer anything from PC/to PC. It's a chicken-egg situation if you have none of those! I just hope my Amiga Format Crossdos coverdisk isn't corrupt when I come to try it.
I remember the early days of the Amiga trying to code in Amiga Basic - it was horrible !! I almost gave up on trying to develop anything on the Amiga until AMOS came along !
I was learning DevPac/M68000 but lost interest when I started working on PC's.
