Bug#168590: ITP: lib765 - an emulation of the uPD765a floppy drive controller

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

Package name    : lib765
Version         : 0.2.0
Upstream Author : John Elliott
URL             : http://www.seasip.demon.co.uk/Unix/LibDsk/
Licence         : GPL v2
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.

(Since I am currently applying to become a DD, a sponsor is required.)

As far as we know, our computer has never had an undetected error.
