This is a catalog of various utilities used to construct this site and develop all of the components needed to create and maintain various historically significant conservation efforts.

The build instructions are provided (where appropriate) because enhancements are inevitable in a hobbyist/conservationist process. Sometimes, it's important to modify the behavior or to add functionality in order to explore the works more deliberately.

This version number is now synchronized with Kevin Jordan's numbering convention. This container is the latest distribution of DTCYBER with specific enhancements which extend the operation of the base dtCyber implementation by Tom Hunter.

This release contains significant bugfixes and some timing enhancements.

Tested On:

  • Windows 10 and 11 (64-bit and 32-bit)
  • Ubuntu Linux (64-bit and 32-bit)
  • FreeBSD Linux (64-bit and 32-bit)
  • RaspbianOS [Linux ARM-8-A] (64-bit)

Built upon Kevin Jordan's github baseline

See Configuration Documentation on the Wiki for Details.
This version supports:
  • Optional line printer bursting on lp3000-class devices.
  • Proper line printer enhancements for ANSI/ISO printing.
  • Dedicated directory support for card-reader input.
  • Dedicated output directories for card readers, punches and line-printers.
  • Filesystem monitoring which monitors decks being submitted to the card reader's dedicated input directory and automatically submits them. Optionally, an output directory may be specified into which dtCyber will deposit processed decks. If this output directory is not specified, all decks submitted to the dedicated input directory are deleted after they are processed.
  • Enhancement of the load_cards command which supports the use of the asterisk (*) in place of the file name. IF there is a dedicated input directory specified for a card-reader the next file present (oldest-first) will be automatically queued for processing by the reader.
  • Display enhancements that decorate the windows with corresponding indicators uniquely identifying the dtCyber console to its related NOS console to reduce operator error.
  • Kevin's simulated hardware enhancements (NIU, MUX, Tape Library, terminals, and many more...).
  • Pre-processing of card decks to support special first-column codes:
    • } Simulating the EOI = 6/7/8/9 card
    • ~eof Simulating the EOF = 6/7/9 card
    • ~eor Simulating the EOR = 7/8/9 card
    • ~raw Simulating RAW Binary card
  • Experimental: idle-loop handling to reduce CPU consumption.
