: Actually, DOS relies on file extensions to identify files. I don't think DOS actually uses any headers of it's own design, even the EXE format was 'borrowed'. (Unlike Windows, where entire books of new file formats were invented. But I digress...) Pretty much all file formats have a header of some kind, both for identification and to contain data *about* the data (for instance, a picture header contains information such as height, width, and color. A TI executable header (such that it is) contains the load address, length of the data, and whether there is another file. ;) )
I wasn't sure how cross-platform the header thing was. But at any rate...
How you doin', bro? So you have the new dynamically recompiling TMS9900 core finished for Ami99, now all redone in assembler, eh? ;-)
But seriously, had any time recently to futz around with Ami99?
Actually - on second thought, I just went to see the updated "Lion's ROAR" and can understand if you're very busy and all. but I was wondering if you'd done anything recently. You're one busy busy guy - and http://tursi.yiffco.com has merited a bookmark from me to catch all the latest updates... Post more links to your projects there when you can... I am interested in a few things - reverse-engineering a Teddy Ruxpin, Vectrex programming, the Discs of Tron Quake2 mod (someone's working on an entire TRON mod for Unreal...)
If you make SSA for the Vectrex, release it as a ROM for the emulation community :) Also - here's a few NGPC links you may have seen already, but have 'em anyhow...
