----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the source code for the current version of MiNT. There are

lots of changes, of course, but no docs. Sorry. The "changes" file

does provide a useful list of things that have changed since previous

versions of MiNT.



Please read the notice in "copying" carefully. This code is completely

unsupported; you use it at your own risk. Because it is unsupported

(and undocumented) we are distributing it in source code only form.

Users who wish a binary version of MiNT should purchase MultiTOS.

Anyone who wants to use this version of MiNT should be fully aware

of the risks involved in using unsupported software, and should

also be comfortable enough with C and the process of compiling that

they can fix bugs themselves. Please respect the conditions in "copying"

(in particular please do not redistribute binary versions of this

program). Source code to future versions of MiNT will not be made

available if these conditions are violated.



This version of MiNT is compiled to use memory protection by

default. If you want to use the version of the AES from the ROM,

you'll have to (a) turn off the -DMULTITOS flag in the makefile,

and (b) after compiling rename "mint.prg" to "mintnp.prg". If

MiNT notices that it is called "mintnp.prg", it will come up

with memory protection disabled (this is necessary because the ROM

AES violates memory protection in several ways). You can also

disable memory protection by setting the "no_mem_prot" variable

in memprot.c and recompiling.
