Squeak 3.0 for OS/2
Vea la Versión en Español
Being completely portable, people of it's user community have ported
it to most existing platforms. I did and mantain the Squeak OS/2 port.
This is a native, high performance Squeak port, wrote especifically for OS/2. It uses DIVE, a game oriented display API from IBM, that uses hardware acceleration to achieve fast display updates. The result is a quite fast Squeak even on a 486 machine.
I included a convenient mapping of several keys in the VM. Ctrl-Break and Esc are the interrupt keys and, Ctrl-Ins, Shft-Ins and Shft-Del manage the clipboard (emulating Alt-c, Alt-v and Alt-x). Besides all Squeak color depth are supported from 1 to 32 bit. If you select a Squeak color mode with more colors that your OS/2 desktop, color dithering will occur, giving a very good illusion of having more colors than you really have.
This version has support for sound and TCP/IP networking. It doesn't still have support for MIDI, serial port or joystick. I will keep enhacing it.
System requeriments (If you need lower requeriments, send me a note. I might work on it)
Files to download
To unzip theese files, you will need an UNZIP program or similar, for OS/2 or Windows, that supports long filenames. For example, this one: unzip.exe (95Kb).
If you want to see how it was done, or want to experiment with it, you may also download the VM source files.
