This manual provides installation instructions for the IMS D7305A occam 2 toolset for the IBM 386 PC (and compatibles). In addition instructions for testing the release are given.

1.1 Layout of this manual

Chapter 2 provides installation instructions for this release.

Chapter 3 contains a simple procedure to check that the installation has been done correctly.

Appendix A contains some distribution notes for this release.

Appendix B shows the positions of the debugger and simulator function keys on a standard PC keyboard.

Appendix C contains details of the DOS extender used with this release.

1.2 Prerequisites for running the toolset

In order to use the occam 2 toolset you will require:

  • An IBM 386 PC (or compatible) with at least 4 Mbytes RAM.
  • DOS version 5.0 or later.
  • About 11 Mbytes of free disk space.
  • An IMS B004 or B008 (or similar) transputer board with an INMOS 32-bit transputer such as an IMS T800 or T414 (Rev B or later), with 2 Mbytes or more of memory.

Note: For interactive debugging a 32-bit transputer is used to run the debugger, so to use this feature of the toolset at least one additional transputer will be needed.

1.3 Compatibility with previous releases

This release is source code compatible with the previous D7205A release of the toolset. Users should recompile all source code with this new toolset.

This release is compatible with the D7314A ANSI C toolset supplied by INMOS. Together these toolsets can be used for mixed language programming in C and occam.
