23 year old code

September 8, 2021

Bamboo figures out how to get code he wrote 23 years ago on the Amiga to work for someone today, and it involves a lot of work with libraries.

Thanks to Piotr Kuchno for contacting me and working through debugging the code, and for the videos of the code in use on real Amiga computers! Thanks also to @ijimkoz for valuable feedback!

Notes

  • Piotr and I were actually using AMOS Professional throughout, despite me showing an original AMOS The Creator box I used to own. AMOS Pro allowed accessing system libraries, while AMOS the Creator did not.
