I'm looking for disk images for Microware's v2 6809 OS9 Pascal.

I have the package right here in front of me, but I have no way to read
the disks into my pc.... My 5.25 went out a long time ago.

I did a google search, but I don't see a copy of the disks anywhere on
the web.

Yes, I looked there.

Years ago, I thought they had a copy of that, multi-view, OS9, the C
compiler, etc. etc. But I don't see that now.

Of course, I've got all that and more. But they are all still on my
5.25" floppies.

Try one of the Coco lists. Someone may help.

Why would you want to do that anyway? Why not just use your CoCo?

Because it would be a lot more comfortable and easier to just do it
under an emulator.

First, I'd have to go dig out my coco. I know where it's at, but I
would have to find the cables. I've gone through two moves since I
packed it away.

Second, I'd have to hook it up to the tv. I never bought a monitor. I
stayed with a spare tv until the end. Frankly, after spending years
using a quality monitor, going back to a tv doesn't sound like fun.
Nostalgic, yes. Fun, no.

Third, what I'm wanting to test would be difficult to do with a couple
of floppy drives. I never bought a hard drive.

(Even for just using the CoCo to copy the files, I'd still have to do
#1 and #2. And I wouldn't have any way to get the data from the coco
to my PC. I sold that coco modem years ago, my current pc doesn't have
a modem.)


On the other hand, using an emulator:

1) It's easy to find and set up.

2) I don't need a tv.

3) I can use a virtual hard drive. A lot easier.

4) I can still keep using this keyboard. Back then, I was familiar
with that keyboard so it was okay. But that's been a few years!

Over all, it would just be a heck of a lot easier.

But, since I couldn't find a copy of it, I just shelved the idea.

It can't be that hard to find a spare 5 1/4 floppy drive?
I've got about eight around that need to be tossed...
(functional, but don't need)
cheers
