GCC for tha AMIGA...

Hi guys...

For the AMIGA fans out there...

Not sure if this is the right forum but someone has done a successful working port of gcc for the classic AMIGA A1200.

It contains a very large subset of *NIX commands and now AMIGA fanatics like me can include another platform, within the platforms limits.

The gcc version is old 2.95.3 but hey the platform is old too and opens up a new avenue to learn shell scripting.

The shell is ksh.

The source code is there along with pre-compiled binaries, much more too.

It is on AMINET here:-

Aminet - dev/gcc/ADE.zip

Get out your old A1200s and have a little fun... ;oD

FFT for the AMIGA through ksh88 shell.
I don't know if anyone is interested but I have been meddling with FFT for the AMIGA. (Sadly we AMIGAns don't have these luxuries through any scripting language.

Ah, the AMIGA, (another poem I wrote in 2005).
Well I wrote this in 2005 and uploaded to AMINET.as a commemoration of a machine that is still in use today. It is now 29 years since this machne came into being. Phenominal and it is still being supported- WOW! My A1200 is on 24/7 and I use it to test code developed on AMIGA emulators... ...... What is on Your Mind?

A journey down memory lane - AMIGA...
Hi guys and gals... Who still plays with the AMIGA in any of its guises? I have a classic A1200(HD) on 24/7 and still build and code for it... Also _clones_ of the same machine using WinUAE and E-UAE... It still has that one major beauty for this 62 year old - moi - it is FUN! ;o)... What is on Your Mind?

Hi there I have a counter called my $counter = 0; I am trying to build an array that will have a name that is for example my @array0 = ("some", "stuff"); but instead of hard coding the "0" in the array name i want to use whatever value the aforementioned $counter has in it...so ......

Dennis Ritchie

Dennis Ritchie was born on September 9, 1941 in Bronxville, New York. His father was Alistair E. Ritchie, a longtime Bell Labs scientist and co-author of The Design of Switching Circuits on switching circuit theory. As a child, Dennis moved with his family to Summit, New Jersey, where he graduated from Summit High School. He graduated from Harvard University with degrees in physics and applied mathematics.
Dennis created the C programming language, the basis of most all modern computer software including Unix and Linux.
Dennis began working at the Bell Labs Computing Sciences Research Center in 1967. In 1968, he defended his PhD thesis on "Program Structure and Computational Complexity" at Harvard under the supervision of Patrick C. Fischer. Dennis never officially received his PhD degree.
During the 1960s, Dennis Richie and Ken Thompson worked on the Multics operating system at Bell Labs. Ken Thompson, aided by Dennis and others, took an old PDP-7 machine and developed their own application programs and operating system from scratch. In 1970, Brian Kernighan suggested the name "Unix", a pun on the name "Multics". To supplement assembly language with a system-level programming language, Ken Thompson created B. Later, B was replaced by C, created by Dennis Ritchie, who continued to contribute to the development of Unix and C for many years.
During the 1970s, Dennis collaborated with James Reeds and Robert Morris on a ciphertext-only attack on the M-209 US cipher machine that could solve messages of at least 2000–2500 letters. He said that, after discussions with the NSA, they decided not to publish it because the principle was applicable to machines still in use by foreign governments. Dennis was also involved with the development of the Plan 9, the Inferno operating systems, and the programming language Limbo. As part of an AT&T restructuring in the mid-1990s, Dennis was transferred to Lucent Technologies, where he retired in 2007 as head of System Software Research Department.
Dennis Ritchie passed away or or about October 12, 2011 (aged 70) at his home in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey.
