CP/M and our replacement operating system,
QP/M, are well past their prime: the days of being the
center of computer attention is long over!
Still, there are many people who still use these systems, usually as a hobbyist or curiousity: some still have operational hardware and many run one of the many Z-80 emulators on their PC. There is one emulator available below.
If you have a Z-80 CP/M or QP/M system or you have installed a PC emulator, here are some Z-80 (CP/M) programs to help you get started.
Included here is NULU, a public-domain LBR handler for QP/M and CP/M systems written by Martin Murray. The LBR included here package includes a set of public domain programs that were offered by other developers into the public domain and provided free on the QP/M distribution disk. There are a number of programs included in this library, many of which were found and added at the last minute.
The downloads for NULU and for all of the public domain programs listed above are available here:
Installation of an LBR package entails copying NULU.COM onto your CP/M or QP/M system (or using import with MYZ80) and then running NULU and extracting the files from the LBR package to your system. Note: If you are having trouble downloading NULU, try downloading NULU.ZIP instead (and then extracting NULU.COM from there).
My goal was to have two MYZ80 downloads available here: Simeon Cran's MYZ80 in its original ZIP format and our expanded version that comes preconfigured with QP/M and some other Z-80 programs MICROCode Consulting wrote during that period. Unfortunately, I have been unable to reach Simeon Cran to get permisiion, so instead I included:
In addition, a set of programs for manipulating .LBR files on the PC, which was handled by NULU.COM and was the "ZIP" of its time for the Z80, is also provided. Enjoy!
