"old" devices
Hello, Can someone has a fast way to port old devices source code to os4? Is the same of the libraries? Also a small example would be useful.. thank you

Assuming that the device is
Assuming that the device is written in C porting it to AmigaOS 4.x won't be much harder than porting a library. In fact might even be slightly less work since you don't generally need to bother with adding a jumptable for m68k compatibility since most devices don't have library functions (a few do though like timer.device, capsimage.device, ahi.device, etc.). Example devices (C source code): ramdev.device diskimage.device (old, very simple, cut down version)
