Bug#168590: ITP: lib765 - an emulation of the uPD765a floppy drive controller
Package name : lib765
Version : 0.2.0
Upstream Author : John Elliott

Description : uPD765a FDC emulation library
lib765 is an emulation of the uPD765a (AKA Intel 8272) Floppy Disc
Controller [FDC] as used in Amstrad computers such as the PCW, CPC
and ZX Spectrum +3.
At present it is not a "full" 765 emulation; features not used in the
PCW BIOS (such as: DMA; multisector reads/writes; multitrack mode;
read/write deleted data) are either left unimplemented or incomplete.
As is usual for libraries, there is a complementary -dev package.
