ADTPro transfers disks to and from Apple II and Apple /// computers and the modern world using any of these communications methods: serial/USB, UDP via the Uthernet or LANceGS Ethernet cards, or audio via the Apple's cassette ports. ADTPro has comprehensive bootstrapping support for otherwise diskless Apple IIs. The home page includes extensive tutorials for getting started.
basE91 is an advanced method for encoding binary data as ASCII characters. It is similar to UUencode or base64, but is more efficient. The overhead produced by basE91 depends on the input data. It amounts at most to 23% (versus 33% for base64) and can range down to 14%, which typically occurs on 0-byte blocks. This makes basE91 very useful for transferring larger files over binary insecure connections like e-mail or terminal lines.
The Torque Network Library is a robust, secure, and easy-to-use cross-platform C++ networking API designed for high performance simulations and games. It features a UDP- based connection architecture with DoS prevention functionality, different types of data guarantee, bit stream compression, server object replication and updating, and a simple, highly space efficient RPC mechanism. It includes a deterministic application journaling replay function for eliminating hard to find networking bugs.
