GEM on the Atari ST Date: 1986 GEM on the Atari ST

First Publishing 1986
414 pages
Hardback

Digital Research (DRI) created the Graphical Environment Manager as an add-on program for personal computers. GEM was developed to work with existing CP/M and MS-DOS operating systems on business computers such as IBM-compatibles. It was developed from DRI software, known as GSX, designed by a former PARC employee. The similarity to the Macintosh desktop led to a copyright lawsuit from Apple Computer, and a settlement which involved some changes to GEM. This was to be the first of a series of 'look and feel' lawsuits related to GUI design in the 1980s.

GEM received widespread use in the consumer market from 1985, when it was made the default user interface built in to the TOS operating system of the Atari ST line of personal computers. It was also bundled by other computer manufacturers and distributors, such as Amstrad. Later, it was distributed with the best-sold Digital Research version of DOS for IBM PC compatibles, the DR-DOS 6.0. The GEM desktop faded from the market with the withdrawal of the Atari ST line in 1992 and with the popularity of the Microsoft Windows 3.0 in the PC front by the same years.

Mapping the Atari

INTRODUCTION by Bill Wilkinson

When I was asked by the editors at COMPUTE! to write this
introduction, I was at first a little hesitant. How does one introduce
what is essentially a map of the significant locations on the Atari other
than by saying "This is a map of..."?   
     And, yet, there is something about this book which makes it more
than "simply a map." After all, if this were "simply" a memory map, I
might "simply" use it to learn that "SSKCTL" is the "serial port
control" and that it is at location $232. But what does that mean? Why
would I want to control the serial port? How would I control it?
     The value of this book, then, lies not so much in the map itself as it
does in the explanations of the various functions and controls and the
implications thereof. Even though I consider myself reasonably
familiar with the Atari (and its ROM-based operating system), I expect
to use this book often.
     Until now, if I needed to use an exotic location somewhere in the
hardware registers, I would have to first locate the proper listing, then
find the right routine within the listing, figure out why and how the
routine was accessing the given register, and finally try to make sure
that there were no other routines that also accessed this same register.
Whew! Now, I will open this book, turn to the right page, find out what
I need to know, and start programming.
     Okay. So much for this introduction. And if you are comfortable
programming your "home" language, the language you know best,
and two or three other languages, you don't need any more from me.
So good luck and bon voyage.
