serlog16.lha

Short:    Debugging device to monitor serial-IO

Special purpose debugging device which monitors serial-IO.
Requires OS 2.0 or greater.

This is version 1.6, an update to version 1.3.
Be sure to read "Readme" before installing it!

snooprouter.lha   Interesting!

Short:    V1.01 logs serial transfer between other hardware!
Requires: OS2.0+, 2 serial ports and null modem cable.

  SnoopRouter!

   SnoopRouter is a tool  that  is  required  when  creating  drivers  for   hardware that is currently only supported by PC, MAC or other systems.

   By using SnoopRouter its possible to  get  an  serial  protocol  within   seconds  and  your  job  is  only to write the driver by using this log  file.

   Mice,  Graphic  tablets,  cameras,  mobiles,   calculators,   satellite receivers,  or  what  ever  is out there. Serial hardware is loosing all its transfer secrets within seconds.

   The idea and the creation of this software came on  the  Amclust  party 1/2000!  Someone   required  an  Driver  for his digital camera and Mice said: "Guido, do it!". By using the mental  and helpful support of  Hulk   and  the  consume  of  coke  and  the  chocolate  bars  we created this universal  serial  snoop  software!

CD32-Amiga11.lha

Short:    Serial cable+keyboard on the CD32 explained

This file explains how to connect an A2000 keyboard and shows how to make aserial cable to use with the CD32.  Note, that you will still need a realCD to make the CD32 boot.  (Useable with the Network CD from Almathera).

It contains the doc in text, DVI (LaTeX) and PostScript format.

This is version 1.1 which corrects an error in the IFF file.

TDMouse-1.1os.lha

NOTE There are a number of programs to use PC Mice with the Amiga's serial port, I personally have not tried any. This is the most recent one I found.

Short:    Use a serial PC mouse on the Amiga! Version 1.1

TDMouse makes it possible to use a PC serial mouse with Microsoft or MouseSystems/Genius mouse protocol on the Amiga by connecting it to the Amiga's serial port.

This is version 1.1.
Changes:
- Added command line option to set serial device and unit

Important warning:
This is only a software driver for the *serial* port! It is *not* possible to connect a PC-mouse  to the Amiga's *mouse* port! Doing this may cause hardware damage on both the mouse or the Amiga's mouse port!

The emulation is done by generating input events via the input.device. Therefore, most games  which read the mouse directly by hardware access do not work with this program. But Workbench programs which use IDCMP work quite well.
 

sersnoop.lha     I highly recommend this

 DESCRIPTION

This little tool shows all incomming seriell data and print it to the standard output ( Shell window  or use ">" to pipe to a output file). A incomming byte has this output style: Example: a ASCII "A"
$ 65    01000001        A
  |         |           |
 Hex     Binary       Ascii

Only real Alphanumeric characters are shown as Ascii, so "$A" will not perform a linefeed.
