In Which I Am Blown Away By the TK4 MVS Package

May 31, 2018

I did a little experiment today that impressed the heck out of me. I downloaded the turnkey MVS system zip file from
and unzipped the contents onto a little USB drive as folder TK4. I was able to mount the same drive in my raspberry pi and in windows. In each case the command MVS started the hercules emulator and MVS.

In both cases I could submit work to ip-address:3505 to run it under MVS and i could see the hercules console at ip-address:8038.

The same drive and commands also worked in my macbook. I realize this is just packaging multiple binaries with some scripts but it’s pretty slick.
