You are right! Those as well as µ are not reachable. (My auto-test code was faulty.)

I added µ to Alt+m and ¬ to Alt+l. This is consistent with the default US Mac layout and replaced dead/not useful keys.

Also SHY i.e. CHR$($AD) is not reachable. I didn't read all of this article, but one could type SHY (Syllable HYphen) at the end of a line to indicate that this hyphen can be removed, i.e. a sort of line-continuation character for words: https://jkorpela.fi/shy.html

NBSP i.e. CHR$($A0) is reachable.

BTW this Mac keyboard layout is called U.S. Extended or ABC Extended; not just U.S. or ABC because that is a slightly different layout with some AltGr dead keys on other positions.

Agreed, macOS calls it "ABC - Extended". I changed its identifier to "ABC/X16", and the docs call it "ABC - Extended (X16)".

This is RC3:

http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_linux-r41_rc3.zip
http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_mac-r41_rc3.zip
http://www.pagetable.com/docs/tmp/x16emu_win-r41_rc3.zip

All ISO chars are now reachable. As a bonus, Shift+Alt+k produces the X16 logo (in ISO mode).

If I didn't break anything, I'll release this as r41.

Can you make these HTTPS links so that they aren't so scary for browsers?

@Michael Steil

The BE Dutch AZERTY keyboard has the "." mapped to a "." on the numpad, while the BE French AZERTY keyboard maps the "." to a comma "," on the numpad !!!

Don't know who invented this, but it is really annoying if the numpad shows a "." but generates a "," when typed. I use the BE Dutch AZERTY keyboard all the time. We have 3 official languages in our country.

Please include the BE Dutch AZERTY keyboard in the ROM. These keyboards are not the same, unfortunately.

Yeah, just a wee bit.

 

Ok - just recompile the release and set it to be a nine bit system. An extra wee bit should resolve the issue. 🙂 Consider it a parity bit!

Jokes aside, I'm encouraged by 3 new emulator versions released in the last little while. Hopefully others are encouraged to take on items that would make a shipping X16 possible. Thanks to those who are moving the project forward!

PS - I've not gone to the new emulator as of yet because of other pressing computer issues. 😪 I hope to get at it soon.
