CP-M-86 is a microcomputer (INTEL 8086) operating system enveloped and marketed by Digital Research. The operating system is designed so that a user can adapt the system to his own input/output hardware devices. This thesis develops interfaces to two floppy disk controllers, the 1SBC 201 (single density) and the 1IBC 202 (double density) controllers. The interface includes the writing of a boot loader embedded in the 1SBC 957 Execution Vehicle Monitor, the monitor system for the INTEL 1SBC 56/12 single board computer. Also included is an interface module for the cold start loader (loader BIOS) and an input and output interface, BIOS. A design for the interface module of typical systems based on Winchester technology hard disks is also presented.

McMahan, Christopher B. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1994-12);All simulations require some type of user interface to be functional. The problem is that this interface is sometimes written as a tightly coupled part of the simulation itself, buried in the main body of code. This makes ...
