Hello! As my title says, I'm looking for a Fortran (any version) in DSK image to transfer to my Apple II. Reading at some places, like Wikipedia, I discovered this programming language was made for our dear computer... but I can't find nothing at internet!
Thanks in advance
Can you use CPM? Asimov has Fortran and Fortran80:
You said, "any version!"
Here's a link to a couple disk images in the Unsorted folder at Asimov for Fortran for the II:
you'll have to scroll down a ways. The disk images you want are Fort1.dsk and Fort2fixed.nib
just my two cents worth,
Thanks Dean, that's exactly what I was looking for! Now I have a little problem... I'd like to convert that "nib" file to "dsk", to transfer with ADTPro (or is it possible to transfer directly?).
David, thanks too for those CP/M files, now I don't have a CP/M card, but I purchased one and it's on the way I made a little "experiment", trying to run fortran 80 at my Amstrad CPC6128 (with CP/M), but at the transfer program (amstrad DSK to disks) I have a "ERROR DSK signature not found"... Well I supposed it wouldn't work but now I'm curious about what that signature is
Again, thanks to both
Unfortunately, .NIB is a "lossy" means of capturing a disk image. It is not straightforward (or even necessarily deterministic) to get it written back out to a physical floppy.
You're going to want to have a good, deep read of this:
Another possibility, if the .nib image isn't copy protected, would be to use an emulator to copy the nib image to a dsk image using something like Copy ][+. I was able to do that with Might and Magic II.
The Apple II Fortran did employ some sort of copy protection, which is why you can only find a NIB of it. It actually ran under the UCSD p-System, generating p-code instead of 6502 machine code. An interesting compiler that, unfortunately, didn't seem to get much support. I would be interested in hearing any success with creating a working floppy.
Little update, finally I received that z80 card and could make disks with Fortran and Fortran 80, CP/M version. They both work great!
