Dayna MacCharlie Documentation and Software

All of the useful stuff in the MacCharlie documentation is provided here in HTML form. I've tried to keep in the typos and mistakes that appeared in the original documents and may well have added a few new ones during the conversion. You can view the pages online here or download them for offline reference.

Some chapters contain a lot of images. The approximate size of each chapter is shown next to the link.

Download the MacCharlie Software

The software below is a later version than is described in the MacCharlie manual. It works with my MacCharlie but I have no idea whether it works with all MacCharlie ROM versions.

Download this version if you use a US keyboard and country settings. If you use different settings, you will need to use Apple's Localizer utility to modify this disk.

MacCharlie PC clock driver and transfer utility (8KB)

Note that MacCharlie was supplied with an OEM version of MS-DOS 3.10. It should run with any older version of DOS such as IBM DOS 3.30. You may need to rename the to in order for it to work properly.
