ZxLink is a multipurpose utility that lets you hook up your ZX Spectrum 48K/128K/+3 to an Unix machine.
ZxLink handles sound and serial up- and downloading. The current version is only able to download raw binary, tape (.TAP/.TZX) and snapshot (.SNA/.Z80) files. Planned for the future:
Backup tapes to hard disk in .TAP format
Backup cartridges to hard disk in .MDR format
Backup +3 disks to harddisk in .DSK format
At the moment ZxLink is known to work on the following machines/ operating systems:
· SunOS 4.x
· Linux Intel SVR4
· Mips SVR4
· SGI Irix
· IBM RS6000 AIX 3.2.x
· Hewlett Packard HP-UX
· DEC Alpha Linux
More information about ZxLink including porting information, command line options, and other useful stuff, can be found in the ZxLink documentation. I'm sorry for being unable to maintain an HTMLized version.
If you would like to extend ZxLink, port it to a new system, add features, etc., please contact me by email or some other means.
