I’ve spent the last few days learning z88dk and deciding what to build next.

With z88dk I can build C programs for my RC2014, I’ve started building a little library to work with the display using ANSI codes, as it seems like the conio stuff isn’t supported on the RC2014. Then I plan on trying to write some games. I’m not sure how I’ll go as I’ve never had only 32k of RAM before!

At present I can test my programs using my RC2014, via the hexload BASIC program (It loads binary programs and jumps to them), but I’d like to be able to save them and have a disk to work with. So, my next project is to get CP/M going.

To do this, I’m planning on building Stephen Cousins’ SC114 and Karl Brokstad’s 61c “The Missing Module”. I got the board for the 61c from ebay, and decided to source the parts myself this time instead of buying kits on Tindie.

So, now it’s waiting for all my parcels to arrive 🙂
