Do we have the Watzman ROM sources?




I don’t see it on Les’ site.  This seller has some other Heath disks… located in Portland OR.

I have (attached) a source code ZIP file that contains the below quoted
msg from Barry (to Chris Elmquist). I have no idea if it's the latest
and greatest. I took a quick look for a version # and didn't see anything:

> you could RELIABLY run the terminal at higher baud rates than with the

So this certainly appears to be the contents of HUG 885-1221, though I do wonder why there were two disks in the original distribution? Not worth $75 to find out though!

Thanks Terry. We'll have to get this posted to the ROM section on SEBHC...

Yes, we have it. Here is the README.DOC from the disk, I'll try to get it up on my site soon:

                               THE WATZMAN/HUG H19

                                HUG P/N 885-1221

        This disk contains the source files, assembled HEX files, and the 

        documentation  file for the WATZMAN/HUG H19 replacement  firmware 

        for H19, H19A, and Z19 terminals and the terminal portion of H88, 

        H89,  H89A,  Z89, and Z90 computers.  Here is a brief explanation 

        of the files.

        DISK A

        MYH19.DOC -- This file explains the features,  installation,  and 

        use of the WATZMAN/HUG H19.  If you want to list it on a printer, 

        use the following command line.

        A>PIP LST:=d:MYH19.DOC[T8]

        Replace d: with an appropriate drive designation (A:-F:).

        MYH19.HEX  -- This is the assembled code portion of the  WATZMAN-

        /HUG H19.

        KEYBD.HEX  -- This  is  the assembled  keyboard  portion  of  the 

        WATZMAN/HUG H19.

        KEYBD.ASM -- This is the source for KEYBD.HEX.

        DISK B

        MYH19.ASM  -- This is the source for  MYH19.HEX.   It was written

using  Digital Research's MAC assembler,  which should be used if

you wish to re-assemble it.
