Marc Barrett's first C program?

Marc Barrett's first C program?

Post by Daniel Barre » Sun, 10 Jan 1993 06:25:32



        Over the years, Marc Barrett has made a number (17,948) of negative
statements about the Amiga, as well as some suggestions of how to change
it.  And yet we have seen no programs written by him.  What do Marc's
programs look like?  The following is my best guess.

        Please note the credits, since the original idea was not mine.

        Dan, I couldn't get this compile.  I kept getting errors due
to a missing header file by the name of <still_no_structured_drawing_support.h>
What gives?  Isn't that header one of the standard ones distributed by
CBM to all developers.  Or is this just another example ofCommodore's
typical short sightedness:  removing support for the unsupported.  Grr.

1. Marc 'who am I' Barrett.



Unfortunately, this is true.  The 840AV uses 40ns 64 bit interleaved
memory that is tied directly to the processor, clocked with 040 timing
cycles.  The A4000 (originally designed for an 020 board) is clocked with
020 cycle timing.  If you pop in an Excaliber board, the memory speed is
more than 5 times faster using the same SIMMs from the A4000's
motherboard.
