TAPClean update: “Anirog” clone support added

I am still quite busy at work, but today I had a chance to finally commit my changes to TAPClean for supporting an Anirog loader clone found quite often in Polish tapes.
The difference in encoding is that the clone uses a trailing sequence, where genuine Anirog doesn’t.
From a loader code perspective, the two differ, but also have a few similarities:

  • exact same pulse threshold and use of timer,
  • similar handoff code to execute a BASIC program at the end of the load.

That’s about it for now. Stay tuned for more!
