CP/M on Apple IIe

Does anyone here do anything with CP/M on a IIe anymore?I picked up the GGlabs card, and have it running. The floppyEMU works in dual 5.25 mode (only revC of floppyEMU supports dual 5.25 mode). 

 

The only "good" disk images I have are the from the PCPI Applicard. There's really not a lot here other than the OS, drivers, and thankfully a utility to copy between DOS and CP/M volumes.

 

I'm curious if anyone has any other disk images that might work already.

 

Also, I obtained a couple of disk images from https://locoscript-software.square.site/retro with CP/M games/software, but I will have to figure out a way to work with these in an emulator perhaps, as the FloppyEMU doesn't seem to want to mount them unfortunately. I know they are made for ZX Spectrum or other CP/M or emulators, but, I figured I might get something of value out of the process.

Apple CP/M images are

Apple CP/M images are peculiar.  Not all that compatible across platforms.

But there are lots of CP/M images to play with here:

The Turbo Pascal compiler is

The Turbo Pascal compiler is fun to play with.  It's online and the manual is online too.  You can write standard Pascal programs or Apple specific programs using some of the libraries.  I did a talk at KansasFest on CP/M for the apple back in 2018.   Most all CP/M software will run on the apple.  However, you need to get the programs copied to the Apple disk format.  I download them to my PC and then use KERMIT to transfer the files over the serial port to the Apple II.  i.e. Run KERMIT on the Apple II and PC to do the transfer.  Let me know and I would be happy to send you my presentation.

One of the sets of disk

One of the sets of disk images for CP/M work fine on my ALS Z80 card.  I don't remember which ones they are, but they are out there.  Works great in combination with an ALS SmartTerm and one of those Hong Kong/Taiwan nade keyboards that offers full upper and lower case.  Runs fine off FloppyEmu, although I was doing it with two FloppyEmu, one on ech connector of a Disk ][ Controller card.

Nice, I'll do some hunting.

 

I have both a 5.25 and Yellowstone card though I only use the Yellowstone. For simplicity while I play with CP/M I have set jumper 4 to Disk ][ Mode. I have confirmed with this controller (In disk ][ mode) and a rev C floppyEMU that the FloppyEMU will operate as drives A: and B: 

 

Something with more storage would be cool but I don't have a scsi card in my IIe at the moment (this can change) and I don't foresee the Microdrive working with CP/M. Alas, 2 separate disks is workable to start this adventure.
