No, but on a Z80 card also running at 4MHz in an original IBM PC, and all from floppy disks.

The way things used to be!!!

Was that how EXOS and IS-BASIC were written as well?

Does that mean the original was actually compiled on an Enterprise?
No, but on a Z80 card also running at 4MHz in an original IBM PC, and all from floppy disks. There is a warning in one of the source files that it takes 20 minutes to assemble, but on a modern PC it takes about 2 seconds!

lgb hacked his emulator so we could run the Z80 assembler and linker on a modern PC :mrgreen:

Did I understand that right? Are you compiling the sources on a modified Enterprise emulator? Does that mean the original was actually compiled on an Enterprise?

I remember to read on the Werner Lidner thread that version 2.0 didn't add fixes, out of the 6MHz trick,

Sometimes ... I hate my eyes. I downloaded and read the specification out of curiosity. It was an interesting read. Unfortunately, I found a number of typos, inconsistent memory size annotation and inconsistent indentation and font size of asterisk marked notes. :oops: Have I already said that sometimes I hate my eyes?

several unexpected bonuses...
It was necessary because when I first did a :dir on a very large but empty disk it took several minutes! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I didn't realise that you had access to the original EXDOS 1.3 sources...
They came from Werner Lindner of Enterprise Gmbh several years ago. Zozosoft managed to arrange the source files and re-assemble them into a byte-for-byte match to the binary 1.3, and lgb hacked his emulator so we could run the Z80 assembler and linker on a modern PC :mrgreen:

Amazing news!  And several unexpected bonuses...

No “bytes free” delay on floppy disks and small/medium volumes

Really looking forward to the release. Thank you! :mrgreen:

P.S. I didn't realise that you had access to the original EXDOS 1.3 sources...

IstvanV's wonderful ep128emu package also has an image converter utility that works almost miracles.

Wow, brilliant! Thank you!
