Continuing to work on RS-232 support in the emulator for my 6502 machine. The UART communication is implemented using named FIFOs.


Today's been a productive day for my 6502 machine. I added RAM to the circuit, so now it'll run programs that use the stack. I tested both a faster timer-based clock and a 1 MHz oscillator can; both work. I finished basic UART program transfer routines and tested them in the emulator, so the next thing to do is add the MAX232/65c22 to the circuit and try transferring a program from desktop machine to 6502 machine.
