OK. I'll put that on my todo list of things to look for.
I have some user-land software for getting the Willem board working under Linux.
Back a little while back (while an impoverished student), I decided it was the best available burner that had publicly available schematics and PCB layout, so built it, planning on writing the software myself. (first PCB project, it was a miracle it worked :)
I wrote some software that handles some 27cxx chips (read, write, ...), but the code's written so it should be fairly easy to add support for other chips.
From the posts, I figured others might want the software too, so spend some of last weekend finishing off porting the software to using Linux's ppdev (rather than hitting the parallel port directly). I got most of the way there (just some timing issues left) before my 5v regulator died.
So, I have some non-functional (but hopefully not too far off) software. I hope to have the regulator fixed today, so should be able to hunt down the remaining bugs soon.
Would people be interested, either in the software or in helping improve it?
