# 184 Assembly Source Interface
« on: May 15, 2008, 04:51:48 PM »
As the developer of Assembly Source Interface V1.0, V1.2A, V1.5AM, V1.5AM Revised Edition, were all issued to Page 6 between 1990 - 94, only ASI V1.2A was included in their PD library As #184 Assembly Source Interface, whether Page 6 actually updated their master disk is currently unknown.

If Page 6 never updated their master disk, the version is ASI V1.2A dated April 1992.

Can anyone check what version # 184 is & the date will be found on the last line in the docs?

Finally by just looking at the title you would think that each PD library had the same copy of ASI!

Page 6 # 184 Assembly Source Interface.
ASI V1.2A April 1992.
Last update October 1992.

DGS PD # 171 Assembly Source Interface.
ASI V1.5AM December 1992.
Last update September 1994.

TWAUG TW # 401Assembly Source Interface.
ASI V1.5AM Revised Edition 1994.

You can load the .ATR image on a PC using Atari800Win Plus.

Doing so I see the asi.doc file says version 1.2a, produced in 1991 and update.doc refers to November 1992...

...so I guess it wasn't updated.

Hi Paul, Les Ellingham actually updated his master disk, also it appears that my own info is wrong in the docs for both ASI1.5AM Revised Edition (basic bug fixes(TWAUG)) & ASI 1.5AM+ (1.5+ basic enhancements(DGS))!

I now remember ASI 1.2A disk was produced in December 1991, posted in April 92 and accepted on 21 September 92 same day as first update & final update on 25 November 1992!

I take it that you have a full time job elsewhere & Page 6 Org is your free time!?

All I can say is that the ATR images which are online were created directly from Les's set of physical master disks which he gave to me (and now reside with the "Centre for Computing History" in Suffolk). If you are able to provide an image of an updated disk, I could include a link to it on the relevant library page.

Yes, I do have a proper job! Page6.org is very much a loss making pastime, but I intend to keep it going indefinitely.

Hi Paul, i now remember in October 92 i send a copy of ASI v1.5+ decimal to Raphael James Espino, as he understood decimal better than hexidecimal, at times my memory is no better than a sieve!

ASI V1.2A is the current latest released for public consumption.

ASI V1.5AM+ is the current latest released for public consumption.

Here is the current ASI V1.2A updated today 16 May 08.
http://tinyurl.com/6bjxgk

Basically replaced `DOCPRINT.BXL' from ASI V15AM+.
Also added my email and links to get ASI V15AM+ to the `UPDATE.DOC' file.

`ASI.BXL' line 4 & the `UPDATE.DOC' file, both state last updated 1st of October 1992, but other files were updated on 25 November 1992!

Finally how do i send you my history profile & pic?
