Update: I just now found GSort14 in the older release of nitros9. But its
a bit scattered. The readme, assembly listing output and the assembly
source are in 3rdparty/drivers/GSort14, but no binary. &%$#@.
Now, I've copied GSort14.lzh to a floppy, and read that floppy into a file
here, which I assume I need to add a .dsk to the filename, and then lets
see if I can get the coco os9 tools to pick it out of that dsk. Not
having done this before, it might be fun. And its proving to be just
that, for some reason it cannot create the output file.
Let me see if Boisy can help. I'll get back to you on this unless you want
a whole 1440 sector .dsk image in your mailbox, 360k in size. In that
case I'll need a good mailbox for you instead of the list at maltedmedia.
