ALink85 By Shawn D'Alimonte
===========================
Copyright ©1997 Shawn D'Alimonte and ©1996 Jani Halme

This program is covered by the GNU general license.  See included
file COPYING for more information.

Thanks to Jani Halme and Per Finander for writing the useful code
that much of this package is based on.  See Acknowledgements in 
ALink85.doc for more info.

What is it?
===========
This is a link program to allow the transfer of variables and backups
between a Texas Instruments TI-85 calculator and and Amiga.  Currently only
the $4 Serial link is supported as that is the one I have.
I have also writen a crummy screen dump program.

The plans for the link should be in the archive, but if not get the from
www.ticalc.org

Supporting other link adaptors should be fairly easy by re-writing
getport(), setport() and initport() in tiport.c.  See Compiling section for
more info.

Why?
====
Because I was sick of useing Link85X under an old version of PC-Task.  It
was slow, and only handled .85g and .85b files.  All others had to be
renamed to .85g.  

Requierments
============
·Amiga - Should work on any amiga, tell me if it doesn't
·TI-85 calculator
·$4 serial link cable
   or another link cable and new port routines in tiport.c
·ixemul.library version 45 or higher.  ftp.ninemoons.com is the best
   source for this as they always have the latest version
·Voltmeter if you want to test your link with linktest
·For prtscrn a Preferences supported printer that can print 128 
   columns of text (In Fine pitch >16 cpi)

Contents
========
send85		-Sends variables to calculator
recv85		-Receives variables from calculator
test/linktest	-Tests outputs of link cable
test/recvtest	-Shows received bytes
prtscrn		-Prints calculator screen using X's
src/		-Source code

History
=======
ver 0.9 - Last weekend
	First working version
ver 1.0 May 21, 1997
	0.9 worked fine with files received by it, but not true #?.85? 
	files because I forgot about word ordering.  Two days later I 
	got it all.  I hope :-)
	Wrote prtscrn just to see if I could do it.
	Added timeout routines to tiport.c
