I have all of the old NuMega debugging tools but I don't know if I have Magic CV. Are you sure that you need it? The product was just a loader for Microsoft Codeview[^]. I've got dozens of old versions of Codeview. You can get it simply by installing the old 16-bit versions of Visual C++ or masm. I believe you would need the one that was included with Masm 5.1 (which I think was the same version included in Magic CV).
I have the old version(s) of CodeView and SoftICE as well, just not the Magic CV.
There are some old DOS drivers that I have always wanted create and others that I wanted to see how they worked.
Turbo Debugger, has the ability to debug a driver, but CV doesn't. Well I couldn't see it anyway.
But bottom line, I would just prefer to stay in CV, DOS 6.x and Win 3.1 where I have put the hours in to, rather than swapping between TD and CV.
I would really appreciate it if you could some how forward me the Magic CV and Magic CVW if you have it.
My projects may only be interesting to me, and that's ok, It is a bucket list hobby.
Just to let you know the mad fools I work for have got me to run a design review for a mission critical update to an established product. Who, me run a design review? I find it worrying that I am trusted to this extent being a new guy. Mind you I have not suffered from some testing I did for Video Processors that are used in Air Traffic Control. So thats good but...
The first thing I want to do is just learn enough to be able to read it. I'm kind of disappointed in its bastardization of the C language family style which makes it harder to absorb. It also seems to have some ... pythonisms? in it.
Still, I hear it's a solid language, but I'd like some good (hopefully free) online tutorials to get my feet wet.
Maybe after that a book, but I'm not there yet necessarily.
Does anyone have anything they recommend? I mean, I can just google, but I don't know what's "good".
Their home page[^] has a "Learn" link. You'd think the language's site would do a good job of something like that. I looked at it out of curiosity a while ago. It was certainly interesting, but the recent rant from one of the language designers, about C being a de facto standard, stated that it even took the language designers a while to arrive at various best practices.
I'd be interested in reading your take on it if you get familiar enough to venture some opinions.
I originally started with the rust book (https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/README.html) and I found it quite good. This was some time ago, and I see they have a complete rewrite which they recommend now. I'd start there.
If you say that getting the money
is the most important thing
You will spend your life
completely wasting your time
You will be doing things
you don't like doing
In order to go on living
That is, to go on doing things
you don't like doing
Finally, if you get stuck on something please feel free to hit me up and I'll be happy to answer questions that you may have. The Rust community is generally quite friendly and you should feel free to ask questions on the The Rust Programming Language Forum[^]. Good luck and happy trails!
