Bit of a project.. Part 1: How to go about 32bitting my 26 bit 4th..

Postby Paul » Tue Aug 15, 2017 11:43 pm

Hi all :D

Im working on a bit of a project. Im using a modified version of BlueGrey Software's FORTH and was really hoping to run it on a modern Raspberry PI. I think its well beyond me, but would anyone please know how I might go about 32bit RO5-ing it?

Theres more to tackle going forward but this is the very first stage.

Its part of a new "Acorns / RISCOS in Industry" restoration project I'm working on.

Any advice etc very welcome! I can put up a version of our 26 bit FORTH. Also if anyone could do it, i might be able to present a cost ... let me know. Might also have a need for module writing too :)

Thanks, Paul.

Use !ARMalyser

https://armclub.org.uk/free/

I used that to help convert the Assembly code that was written inline in the original VIDC Enhancer source. That way, rather than blowing up when attempting to run it on a 32-bit machine, it fails gracefully with a proper error. Even though the Enhancer target is 26-bit platform only, I used the process to learn about the 26-bit to 32-bit process.
