16Eric Norum (eric@@skatter.usask.ca) has a driver for a parallel
17port interface to a BDM module.  This driver has a long history
18and is based on a driver by Gunter Magin (gunter@@skil.camelot.de)
19which in turn was based on BD32 for DOS by Scott Howard.  Eric Norum
20and Chris Johns (ccj@@acm.org) have put together a package containing
21everything you need to use this BDM driver including software, PCB layouts,
22and machining drawings.  From the README:
23
24"This package contains everything you need to be able to run GDB on
25Linux and control a Motorola CPU32+ (68360) or Coldfire (5206, 5206e, or
265207) target through a standard PC parallel port."

34The package is officially hosted at Eric Norum's ftp site:

40Peter Shoebridge (peter@@zeecube.com) has ported the Linux
41parallel port BDM driver from Eric Norum to Windows NT.  It is
42available at http://www.zeecube.com/bdm.
43
44The efi332 project has a home-built BDM module and gdb driver for
45Linux.  See http://egi332.eng.ohio-state.edu/efi332/hardware.html)
46for details.

52available upon request.  It is also available from their ftp site:

55The Macraigor OCD BDM module has a driver for Linux
56written by Gunter Magin (Gunter.Magin@@skil.camelot.de).

73@c "Adrian Bocaniciu" <a.bocaniciu@computer.org> has a driver
74@c for NT and is willing to share it but he needs to be emailed
75@c privately since he needs to explain somethings about it.
76@c It has been used for over a year as of 08/18/99.
77
78Christian Haan <chn@@intego.de> has written a driver for FreeBSD
79based for"a slightly changed ICD BDM module (because of changes
80in the BDM interface on the PowerPC)" that "probably will work with
81the PD module too."  His work is based on the M68K BDM work by
82Gunter Magin (Gunter.Magin@@skil.camelot.de) and
83the PPC BDM for Linux work by Sergey Drazhnikov (swd@@agua.comptek.ru).
84This is not yet publicly available.
85
86Sergey Drazhnikov (swd@@agua.comptek.ru) has written a PPC BDM driver for
87Linux.  Information is available at http://cyclone.parad.ru/ppcbdm.

89Huntsville Microsystems (HMI) has GDB support for their BDM module
90available upon request.  It is also available from their ftp site:
91ftp://ftp.hmi.com/pub/gdb
92
93GDB includes support for a set of primitives to support the Macraigor
94Wiggler (OCD BDM).  Unfortunately, this requires the use of a
95proprietary interface and is supported only on Windows.  This forces
96one to use CYGWIN.  Reports are that this results in a slow
97interface.  Scott Howard (http://www.objsw.com) has announced
98that support for the gdb+wiggler combination under DJGPP which should
99run significantly faster.
