This page has been put together as a place to obtain all the best utilities for
both the emulators and a real CPC. I don't claim that it's an exhaustive listing,
but it should list the major ones which no CPC enthusiast should be without.
Unless otherwise stated, all links are for PC based applications.
The best CPC->PC transfer utility available. This can handle most
of the protected formats available but will only write to the enhanced
DSK format so will therefore not create images compatible with versions
of CPE prior to 5.1.
All these links are CPC or CPM based so are for use on the emulators.
This is a generic file-copy utility for converting from CPM disks to
the PC and back, mainly of use for converting files for the /tape directory
or single files between machines.
Included are disk format definitions for handling CPC data & system
This is a .DSK image maintenance utility for adding and extracting
files which are stored on a PC based file system such as the /tape directory.
This version does not support the enhanced DSK image format.
Pyradev is the assembler that i use and was written bu Gremlin but
released on their Discovery label.
The suite includes an Editor, Assembler, Monitor & Disk Editor. Also
inlcuded is a basic filecopy utility which doesn't seem to work on CPCemu.
This is the CPM implementation of Pyradev.
The Insider is only of any use on a real CPC with a multiface but is
essential for making a hackers life easier.
