Atari 800 Emulator for Unix, Amiga and MS-DOS, Version 0.6.0

This is the version 0.6.0 of my Atari 800, 800XL, 130XE and 5200 emulator
for Unix, Amiga and MS-DOS. My main objective is to create a freely
distributable portable emulator (i.e. with source code available). It can
be configured to run in the following ways :-

	1. BASIC mode
	2. CURSES Mode
	3. SVGALIB for Linux Systems
	4. X-Windows + Optional XVIEW or MOTIF User Interface
	5. CBM Amiga
	6. MS-DOS

The basic mode is only useful for running programs such as MAC65,
Atari Basic etc. I have had this version running on Linux,
SunOS 4.1.3, Solaris 2.4, Silicon Graphics, VAX/VMS, CBM Amiga
(Dice C and GNU C) and the HP-UX 9000/380.

The CURSES mode is similar to the basic mode, but it also enables full
screen editing capability. Some computer don't seem to support curses
fully - SunOS 4.1.3, VAX/VMS, LINUX (but ncurses is OK).

The SVGALIB version runs at a reasonable speed. The screen dimensions
are limited to 320x200 and is unable to display the overscan modes.
Instead SVGALIB displays the core 320x200 pixels. The area which is
displayed can be modified using the F11 and F12 keys.

The X-Windows version supports graphics and has an optional XVIEW
user interface. The Linux X Window version can be built with
joystick support (If joystick module is installed in the kernel).

The Amiga version supports graphics but currently lacks Paddle support.



Note: Not all features are supported on all platforms.

48K/52K Atari 400/800 emulation (optional RAM between 0xc000 and 0xcfff)
Atari 800XL emulation.
Atari 130XE emulation (but Antic access the same bank the CPU is using)
Atari 5200 Games System.
OSS Super Cartridges.
Should run on any Unix computer running X-Windows.
Wide / Normal / Standard Playfields.
Joystick controller using numeric keypad.
Paddle controller using X-Windows mouse position.
Display List Interrupts.
Vertical Blank Interrupts.
All Antic Display modes.
GTIA graphics support for *all* Antic modes (GTIA Characters etc.)
Player Missile Graphics with collision detection.
Character vertical reflect, invert and blank.
Files can be stored directly on your host computer via the H: device.
	(H: replaces the C: device which serves no useful purpose)
Reads both ATR and XFD disk files.
Disk swapping for XVIEW, MOTIF and Amiga versions.
PIL modes - allows memory between 0x8000 and 0xbfff to be toggled
between RAM and ROM.
Horizontal and Vertical Fine Scrolling
Playfield and Player/Missile Priorities
Sound Support on Unix using the Network Audio System
Printer support
