Just dreaming, perhaps. :)

If I can figure out how to access the parallel port from userspace inside 
aranym running linux, that would probably work. I'm using File=stderr.

Here's where actual linux experience on atari would help. With debug=par on 
the kernel command line it's clear that linux can write to the port fine. 
However, there doesn't seem to be a device. If I modprobe parport_atari
I see some some initialization gibberish on aranym's stderr and linux tells
me that "parport0: Atari build-in port using irq," but doesn't seem to give 
me a device or anything I can use. Creating the device manually doesn't
seem to work either.

All I really want is a way to dump stuff from linux userspace to a file
outside aranym.

Any chance I could get a version where PAUSE is configurable in the
config? I always seem to be running aranym on a computer with no PAUSE
key. :)
