Architectures: Classic AMIGAs, WinUAE, FS-UAE, OSX 10.14.3, Linux Mint 19.

  MINIMUM Requirements Are:-

        Stock A1200, 4MB Fastram and HDD.
        WinUAE 3.4.0, minimum.
        FS-UAE 2.8.1, minimum.
        Standard OS 3.0.x install or better.
        Full Python 1.4.0, minimum, installed, (full install on AMINET):
        Full ADE UNIX environment install, (full install on AMINET):

        Library file ixnet.library version 48.0
        Library file ixemul.library version 48.0
        Both files are here if you have NOT got them:

        (OSX 10.14.3, gcc 4.2.1 and Python 2.7.10, 3.5.2;
        and also Linux Mint, gcc 7.3.0 and Python 2.7.10.)



  Version 1.00.00. Probably the one and only upload for this archive.



  (Apologies for any typos, etc...)
  Consider this README the instruction manual too.


  This is a Python DEMO designed to run under ADE the *NIX style emulator
  to create a C script to be compiled under gcc 2.95.3 for the AMIGA A1200.
  It requires all the dependencies above as it is aimed at AMIGA users of
  a *NIX style operating system. The C source will build a simple calculator
  as ADE does not have one by default. It can do floating point, add,
  subtract, multiply, divide, power and nthroot. As it stands it can be used
  stand alone in *NIX mode and can cater for floating point arithmetic for
  KSH88 the default shell for ADE.
  This python script is designed to demonstrate how to embed a C source[1]
  into a python script to build your own gcc compiled executables as part of
  the ADE /bin/ package.

  The two new files generated are saved inside the current drawer and
  called mycalc.c, the C source, and calc, the executable file.

  1) Download Python_14, unpack and install to the DRIVE:Drawer of your
  2) Assign a PYTHON: volume to the DRIVE:Drawer of your Python drawer.
     For example:
     Assign PYTHON:   WORK:Python-1.4
  3) Download ADE, unpack and install ADE the UNIX environment to the
     DRIVE/Drawer of your choice.
  4) As per the instructions install ixnet.library and ixemul.library to the
     Libs drawer, ONLY, if you have NOT got them.
  5) Once everything is ready download the and
     rename it to "" without the quotes.
  6) Start an AMIGA shell and open it up to at least full width and height.
     Everything will be inside the AMIGA shell now.
  7) Copy the above file from where it was downloaded to your
     VOLUME:ADE/home drawer.
  8) Copy the Python executable to ADE:bin/ drawer as python.
  9) Optionally; do the same for MEmacs as this will give a useful editor
     too in case you need a reasonable one for any editing.
 10) Go to YOUR ADE drawer and "Execute ADE-Satrtup" without the quotes.
 11) Now enter KSH88 as ksh and after a short while you will then see a
     prompt, something like:
 12) Change this drawer to:
     cd home
 13) Your prompt should now look something like:
 14) You can now run the file as:
     Where <CR> is the ENTER key.
 15) The program is SSLLOOWW so be patient.

  A few notes to be very, VERY aware of:-

 [1] ALL C sources INSIDE any Python code MUST have any _single_ escaped
     characters in them with _double_escaped characters; for example:
     '\n' becomes '\\n' without the quotes. This will ensure that the
     correct script will be generated.
 [2] Remember this is designed for a stock A1200, so it is not quick at
     compiling. We are not dealing with multi-core, mega-memory,
     hyper-speed CPUs and modern coding algorithms here so be patient.
 [3] Not only does this code create a basic calculator for ADE but shows
     how to get the calculated result into a python _variable_ too.
 [4] This code will run inside Python 2.0.1 too but requires much improved
     AMIGA HW to run python 2.0.x. Untested inside Python 2.4.6 on AMINET
     but might work there also.
 [5] And finally read the DEMO script for more information.

    Testing Evaluation:-

    All WinUAE, FS-UAE and Classic AMIGA test conditions were/are running

    minimum hardware and software requirements ARE needed however.

    I have no idea what strange configuration setups will create so refer
