XelaSoft, who wrote low level floppy disc controller (FDC) drivers for his copying program FastCopy, has released those drivers under the GPLv2 on GitHub right here

A WordStar document in Dutch is included on how to use the drivers. The trigger for this release was the need for these drivers in Fuzix

Relevant link: Source code of FastCopy for MSX

International collaborations within the spirit of free software are always awesome and being done for the good of beloved MSX just make them even better. I hope Alain and all the contributors will make the best of it.

Always great to see source code getting published! I’ll definitely be referencing this in the future, to improve the MSX Assembly Page documentation on FDCs. Too bad tho it isn’t more liberally licensed (like MIT or BSD).

Yeah, it't rather inconvenient if txt is not adapted to be read by an international audience... I know all about it Wink
