Praha 8 - Troja
Have you ever connected to Amiga or repaired an external drive? If so,
you discovered that you need to know, what is drive signalizing to Amiga and
sometimes you need send certain signals or sequence of signals to the drive.
This program was written for these occasions.
Program has GUI - signals are controled using gadgets, received signals
are displayed as 'pseudogadgets'. You can directly control all eight signals
of the drives (MOTOR, SIDE, DIR, STEP and SELECT 0-3) and you see what is
physical level of four signals (READY, TRACK0, WR PROT and CHANGE) Amiga's
Although it's directly accessing hardware registers, it's as clean as
possible, because it allocates all units by disk.resource. There may be
little dislike that it slows down computer, because it looks ten-times per
second for any change of received signals, but it's necessary.
NOTE: Signals are displayed 'as is' using their physical (not logical!)
level ("What can you measure by V-meter").
