ARGV= protocol

ARGV= protocol

Post by DAVID MEGGINS » Thu, 21 Jun 1990 23:00:00

Thank you again to the many people who have responded to my ARGV=
enquiry. I misunderstood the new Atari protocol because of the German
Gemini 1.1, which uses it incorrectly (the way I described it in my
initial posting). The ARGV= protocol looks very promising for the ST,
and I will incorporate it into my startup code. Just to make things
clear, this is the correct format for ARGV=

       ARGV=<don't care>\0<av[0]>\0<av[1]>\0...<av[ac-1]>\0\0

Also, as Alan Pratt wrote, the length byte in the basepage must be set
to 0x7f (I think). Hope this makes up for any confusion. Now, could
someone explain XBRA (just joking).

I need documentation on the XBRA interrupt handling protocol and the
ARGV message protocol so that I can support them in my programs.

Can anyone point me to some docs, or possibly even email them to me?
