With MinGW, the compiler should port fairly easy. Testing would be
required to insure that any issues with endianness are addressed.
But it should be fairly easy to adapt this compiler to RS-DOS,
assuming we could find the source code to rlink.
Allen Huffman has a large box of 5.25" and 8" diskettes that
Microware was going throw away. These disks contain all sorts of old
6809 source code, including rma and rlink, I'm sure. Myself,
including others, have asked Allen multiple times to please ship the
box of disks to Tim Lindner, who has secured an 8" drive to read the
old disks. Tim is ready to archive the contents of all the disks,
but Allen has yet to send them.
I would encourage everyone to email alsplace at pobox.com with the
