Linux C2NEmu TAP playback client updated too!

This evening after work I managed to do the necessary adjustments to my C2NEmu TAP playback client for Linux too and I am very satisfied with the results🙂

Here’s the output of the tool under Linux:

$ sudo ./c2nemu-play -i joinedtape.idx -p 1 /dev/ttyACM0 joinedtape.tap
C2NEmu play utility, rel 1.3 - (C) 2016 Luigi Di Fraia
Communicates with a C2NEmu device to play TAP files

   00000020 (hex: 00000014): Silkworm
>> 00536682 (hex: 0008306a): The Great Gianna Sisters

Buffer time=3:47 Success condition received from /dev/ttyACM0, 772626 bytes sent

The output of C2NEmu was sampled by DC2N5-LC to a DMP file. The latter was fed into TAPClean, whose “Test” report shows:

Header test : PASS [Sig: OK] [Ver: OK] [Siz: OK] 
Recognition test : PASS [772626 of 772626 bytes accounted for] [100%] 
Checksum test : PASS [7 of 7 checksummed files OK] 
Read test : PASS [0 Errors]

Yep, 100% recognized. Not only that: the quality of the resulting TAP was extremely good too, which would ensure the absence of load errors on a Commodore 64.
Check the count of unoptimized pulses below:

Seq. no.: 2 
File Type: C64 ROM-TAPE HEADER

Checkbyte Actual/Expected: $0F/$0F, PASS

 - File ID : FIRST 
 - DATA FILE type : BASIC

 - DATA FILE End address : $0950 
 - DATA FILE Size (calculated) : 335 bytes

And have a look at the graphic representation:

Pretty neat, isn’t it?
