HP Series 80: commands in various LEX files



#7

On the Series 80 these files are called BINARY PROGRAM FILES and they are equivalent to the HP-75 (and 71B) LEX files.

I have been trying to take stock of the functions that are available in various Series 80 binary files and hopefully document them (or find comments about them in old magazines such as the PPC Journal).

So here is a list of most (all?) the stuff I have:

The format used is a left justified line containg the architecture (85 or 87), the name of the binary file, its size in blocks, the word BPGM, and its size in bytes. This is followed by a number of indented lines with a coma separated list of keywords supported by the binary file.

Enjoy

If I find a way to easyli transfer disk-files from a HP Series 80 Computer to a PC (I have not found the often suggested LIF utils either for PC or series 80 Computers), I can provide a great amount of Binaries (and even real programs).
For example the sysext utility written by myself in the mid of the eigthies contains a command named bcat. This command lists all statements and functions of a binary. For Functions also parameter types are given.
Can someone provide the LIF-Utilities?

Hi,

there should be a link to the LIF utils here in the hpmuseum and on TOS.

However, I could also send you a copy of those files.

Just be careful, not every bios now supports 256 bytes floppy sectors. I use an old compaq Pentium 166 with Win98 for that kind of transfert.

You can dump a complete HP-lif disk (ascii format). Just recreate the binary file for HP8x emulator (only 3" 1/2, 8" format supported).

I have just used a 1 year old Dell Xeon and it worked just fine.

Unfortunately the LIFUTILs do not work with Windows 200 or XP
(at least with my setup -- its difficult to generalize with these products)

I usually just boot from a Windows 98 floppy (no gui, just DOS mode) and run the LIFUTIL from there.
