boards.library README  21/Jan/2021

Introduction:

This library decodes manufacturer IDs and product IDs of Amiga autoconfig 
hardware. So - in short - it'll show you what stuff there is inside your 
machine and who made it. It's supported by other tools which provide 
information about your system, like "WhichAmiga" by Harry Sintonen or 
Report+ by James Jacobs. 

Version information:

This release has been developed and tested on various Amiga hardware, both 
real and emulated, but may contain bugs, crash your machine and frighten your
cat.

Developer information:

If you're developing a new piece of hardware for M68k-Amigas, please read the 
according section of BoardsLib.guide (enclosed in the archive).

If you're a software developer and still use the 2.x release, you MUST check out
the 
modified API. The archive contains full developer documentation and 
include-files for C and assembly language. 


*Your help is needed*

Get your weirdest and latest expansion boards out of your storage boxes, run 
showboards on your machine and give me your feedback every time you encounter 
an unknown board or anything strange. And if you are/were a developer of 
hardware yourself and know some details about you cards' serial information 
encoding, let me know as well. 

I also enjoy "showboards"-outputs of fully loaded machines or those containing 
rare pieces of hardware. Yes, developers' needs can be quite simple. ;-)
