I've only been dipping in and out of StarDot recently, because I've been squirreling away writing a RT11 Host interface for PDP11 BBC BASIC. It's been a lot fiddlier that I expected, coding for RT11 is like CP/M but without the friendliness. Yesterday, I achieved a major milestone, got LOAD and SAVE working (via OPEN, READ/WRITE, CLOSE).

For extra excitement, I've been testing on an emulator for a Soviet PDP-11 clone, the UKNC:

The next step is to work out how to do system() so OSCLI can call RT11 commands and I can *DIR the disk.

Code: Select all
