uIP for standalone Apple II Internet apps

aiiadict (aka Richard Jackson) made a request in comp.sys.apple2 for someone to help him with the ip side of things for his standalone graphical web browser for the Apple II.

I suggested, I could massage the exisiing uIP 1.0 (Adam Dunkels) open source code to be his starting point for the application as it has a tcp/ip stack writen in portable ‘c’, it is cc65 (Ullrich von Bassewitz) compatible and it comes with some sample web applications … great starting point.

It is about 95% there in that it attempts to download web pages but something is not quite right yet … On the other side I know Rich has said he has made some good progress on the HTML parser in 6502 assembler and graphical display of web data.

Stay tuned …
