PROMER is the original Acorn application for use with the PROM Programmer Board.  PROMER2 is my enhanced version which has a nicer user interface and additional commands for viewing and manipulating memory, I have also added support for the 74S287 PROM.  I am currently working on PROMER3 which will include support for TELSA PROMs.



'PROMER' taken from the PROM Programmer Board Technical Manual.

My enhanced versions:

Here is an .ssd with the executables:

PROMER 2 Commands:
