None C1 Hexdos exists?

Post by nama » Fri Oct 12, 2018 1:40 am

I know Hexdos was originally written for the C1, but was there ever a version of Hexdos for other machines (C2, C4, C8)?

I'm not aware of a version for C2/4/8. One reason might be that Hexdos was tightly integrated with BASIC in ROM, which was not typically present on C2/4/8 disk systems, since ROM BASIC and disk boot require different boot ROM images. The C1 ROM included support for both disk and ROM BASIC.
