Isn't it basically a ROM disassembly?
You can still get the Advanced User Guide which has this.

Someone scanned it a few years ago but we never saw the result: he wanted Fabrice Broche's agreement to make it public.
Since then we lost contact with this person.
:cry:

Yes l'Oric à Nu is the French "bible" with ROM disassembly, lots of comments and details. We recently discovered a few small mistakes here or there, in the tape routines for instance, but it's a really great book.

Jon Haworth was doing a translation along with the V1.0 ROM disassembly in OUM and two books were released. He never quite finished but wasn't far off. I wonder if someone can persuade him release the book versions? It wouldn't be too much work to finish it.

Another good book is the Getting More from Your Oric one which gives more details about the chips etc http://www.48katmos.freeuk.com/br4.htm

Then, L'Oric a nu is only a ROM disassembly or has more things about Oric hardware?.

I didn't reply to this as I don't have the book.
I believe the bulk is the disassembly but I think it has some more details. I'm not sure what else though, so I hope someone else can reply to give the details.
It is a rare book though so you might be better getting an A.U.G. There are more details in there too.

thanks for your reply Steve, I hope someone else can reply to give details too. If "L'Oric á nu" is only a disassembly, then A.U.G. is valid for me too.

Well yes, there are hardware things, details about mathematics, memory organization, the tape signal and so on.
But not being a hardware specialist at all, I have no idea if this is interesting information for hardware wizards... It's a rather small part compared to the ROM disassembly taking approx. 90% of the 400 pages.

thanks for reply Symoon. Well, then either is valid for me, but both are very difficult to get now. I browsed in Amazon site and A.U.G. is not available already. :-(

Steve, I have the book "Getting more from your Oric" photocopied, I'm thinking in scanning it and convert it to pdf format. :-)


Cheers.
