I've written a set of device drivers for OS/8 that allow you to send and receive files via the Xmodem protocol. You can use these device drivers with PC programs like TeraTerm or HyperTerm (or Linux equivalent) to transfer any sort of files to and from your OS/8 disk.

Once installed (with BUILD), these work nicely with e.g. PIP, like this:

.R PIP
*MYFILE<XMR:/I

and also the other direction:

.R PIP
*XMT:<MYFILE/I

You can find the source code and assembled code, as well as documentation, here:

Enjoy.

This is great - thank you!

P.S. The DECUS style writeup is a nice touch :)
