This manual provides installation instructions for the D705B occam 2 toolset for the IBM and NEC PC (and compatibles), including descriptions of parts of the toolset specific for DOS-based systems. Instructions for rebuilding the parts of the release supplied in source form are also given and changes from the previous release of the toolset are listed.

Layout of this manual

This introduction lists the prerequisites for running the DOS-based version of the toolset and summarises the contents of the release.

The rest of this manual is divided into the following chapters:

2 Installing the release: gives instructions for installing the software and setting up the system, and lists the software components.

3 DOS dependencies: provides information about DOS-specific features and requirements, including DOS specific libraries.

4 Sources supplied with the toolset: provides information about the sources supplied with the toolset, including how to rebuild the tools after modification.

5 Changes from the D705A occam toolset: outlines the differences between this and the D705A occam toolset, and lists the new tools.

6 AFSERVER libraries: describes the AFSERVER libraries which enable the D705A toolset to be used with the new host file server.

7 Known problems: lists known bugs in the software and documentation.

8 Debugger and simulator keyboard layout: shows keyboard layouts for the debugger and simulator functions on the IBM and NEC PC.
