Re: ZX81 is 40 today!

It came from a Commodore64 fan!

I loved my ZX81. I gave it a keyboard with proper keys, 56K additional RAM everything my student grant (and Access card) could afford!

Cheers,
Norm.

Re: Running Cport from Win1_

Don't run the disassembling first phase again, just run the turbodischarge1_bas program, and use the cport_codes file supplied. Many thanks indeed Martin, that helped a lot. Using the codes file you supplied, and the updated version of the TurboDisCharge1_bas decompiler, I got about 14,500 lines of...
