PPC Paris and JPCROM for the HP-71B - J-F Garnier - 02-04-2003

Hello all,

As a former PPC-Paris member (242), I'm looking for old members who could still have some materials from these old days. Especially I would like to get the JPCROM source files. I have partial source lists from the JPC journal, but not the full source files that were assembled on a HP Integral PC.

As you may know, I'm a HP-71B fan, and I *really* would like to recover these documents.

Thanks in advance.

Jean-Francois

Hi. I have the JPC rom. In fact, it's the unpublished corrected bug-fixed source file in an EPROM.

I do not know how I can get it to you, however.

I have a tape drive, but no tapes.

Can anyone volunteer to copy the ROM to a 9114 disk? (Assuming that no copyright issues are a concern?)

Gene

I can do the copy since I have a 9114B. Lets continue this over email

I can also do the copy. I have an hpil isa card and LINK+ running on a 286.

Let me know if I can help.

Hi there,
First president of JPC-Paris Philippe Guez gave me all the
archives of the club. Thus I got a lot of 3.5" LIF discs.
I have some different versions of JPCROM.
In order to copy it onto a MSU, my advice is to use ROMCOPY.
In order to make an Eprom image, please use MAKEROM and MKROMLEX.
I can do that for Jean-Fran├žois and others too.
Gene, do you have an Eprom version or a plug-in module?
Kind regards from Normandy. Sincerely yours.
Emmanuel



Re: PPC Paris and JPCROM for the HP-71B - Gene - 02-05-2003

Hi there, I have some different versions of JPCROM.

Gene: The version I have is an unreleased, debugged JPC ROM Lex file. It is an ordinary lex file on the ROM.

In order to copy it onto a MSU, my advice is to use ROMCOPY.
In order to make an Eprom image, please use MAKEROM and MKROMLEX. I can do that for Jean-Fran├žois and others too.

Gene: Perhaps, but I don't think there will be any problem just treating it as a normal LEX file. Not sure.

Gene, do you have an Eprom version or a plug-in module?

Gene: It is a plug-in Eprom.


Re: PPC Paris and JPCROM for the HP-71B - Emmanuel, France - 02-05-2003

Does 'plug-in eprom' mean a 27256 eprom that fits into
an HHP 32K Eprom module or a CMT plug-in module?
Please accept my apologies for that question.
I'll send you my address if you'll accept to loan that famous ROM.



Re: PPC Paris and JPCROM for the HP-71B - Gene - 02-05-2003

I believe it fits into the CMT variety. It is present in the front port of my HP-71B.

There are 2 others who have volunteered to help, one in the US (I think) and one in Greece.

The best choice is the one that gets it either a) on the web for all, b) on tapes and floppy disks to be used, or c) able to be burned on NEW Eprom modules.

Or a combination.

Who should it be loaned to?

Gene


Re: PPC Paris and JPCROM for the HP-71B - Emmanuel, France - 02-05-2003

Dear Gene,
For instance, I have the following peripherals:
HP82161A Digital Cassette Drive
HP9114A or B Disc Drive
HP82973A IL/PC ISA card (Linkplus, Hpillink, Cross71)
Eprom Burner with ISA controler card
then I can:
copy it in various formats,
burn a 27256 Eprom (32K) for an HHP Eprom module
and deliver a Binary file for those who want to burn Eproms
create a ROM image file for those who use ROMCOPY with a 32K RAM module
...
I can finally help our community
