damn books, people had such better memories before them. My say: it's always better to have an option than not to have one

Big respect for you from Belarus, Brest city. I have always admired such people like you are.

I'm the operator with my pocket calculator!
But where is this special key by pressing which it plays a little melody?

Making a CPU or all SOC from scratch is the best way to learn.. so I went the same patch.
I have to learn all FPGA stuff to do my scientific word - make a neural network and/or signal filter with it. I have (university property) Altera DE2-115 board, and I started from making a VGA text mode driver (160x50 chars, 8x16 font ripped from Atari ST, attributes a'la CGA). Now it works and I started programming my own 16-bit CPU. It has 8 registers, short instruction set (only 32 instructions coded on 5 bits) and if_c and if_z style conditional execution inspired by the Propeller.

VHDL vs Verilog? I started from VHDL, but now I am a Verilog enthusiast. It is simpler. Much simpler than VHDL. And, like C, the programmer is always right. I have control, not the language.

------------

Can you release a source code of your demo or port it to DE2-115 board?

"I might elaborate on the technical reasons for this in a later post."
Please do, the nitty-gritty in your posts is often very interesting.

It would seem like you could "fix" this (or at least, push the machine so that it didn't happen any more) by putting a few extra pF of capacitance on pin 18 of the VIC.

So I was searching for information about the TTY system, and where did I, by chance, end up? Thanks for the great article. :-)

Well, I don't use syntax highlighting anyways.

I agree; I don't like all that fancy animated stuff and so on that they like to put in modern computers. For one thing, omitting it would shorten and speed up the program.

I do not think it is necessary to deliberately stay away from clever techniques. It depends what you do. Also, debugging isn't exactly twice as difficult; it depends on the program and on other things.

Those underhanded C codes never pass my code review. I know C programming, and I can see that it is wrong. If you don't see it, you aren't a real C programmer.

Splendid as always! Will have great fun trying this out!

Now we all await a C64 REU version of ScummVM ;^)
