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/

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

mbmon - MotherBoard Monitor SYNOPSIS
mbmon [options] <seconds for sleep> (default 5 sec) This manual page documents briefly the mbmon command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original pro- gram does not have a manual page. Recent motherboards have functionalities to monitor the CPU temperatures and the frequency of CPU cooling fans etc. Although some programs utilizing these hardware monitoring facilities have been developed for the Microsoft Windows platforms, no programs seem to exist for PC- UNIX and the X Windows System platforms. mbmon used at the command line reports the temperatures, voltages and rpm (rounds per minute) of cooling fans. It can also be used remotely via telnet, thanks to the "-P" option. OPTIONS
-h Show summary of options. -V, -S, -I, -A Access method (using "VIA686 HWM directly"|"SMBus"|"ISA I/O port"|"All this methods"). -d Debug mode (any other options except (V|S|I) will be ignored). -e [0-2] set extra temperature sensor to temp. Need -A. -p chip For probing chips. chip=winbond|wl784|via686|it87|gl52|lm85|lm80|lm90|lm75 -Y For Tyan Tiger MP/MPX motherboard. -f Display temperature in Fahrenheit. -c count Repeat <count> times and exit. -P port Run in daemon mode, using given port for clients. -T|F [1-7] print Temperature|Fanspeed according to following styles: style1: data1 style2: data2 style3: data3 style4: data10ata2 style5: data10ata3 style6: data20ata3 style7: data10ata20ata3 -r Print TAG and Value format. -u Print system uptime. -t Print present time. -n, -N print hostname (long|short style). -i Print integers in the summary (with -T option). EXAMPLES
mbmon -P 11000; telnet localhost 11000; sudo killall mbmon mbmon -c1 mbmon 1 (yeah, real time baby !) SEE ALSO
