What's SidBace?

Ever heard of SidFind? SidFind is the net version of a search-tool where you can find sid-songs on keywords in Title, Author or Copyright fields (Maybe even STIL) SidFind is not the only online search-tool that enables some strong search capabilities.
You can consider SidBace as a local version of an online search-tool like SidFind, but it existed earlier before most sid-related search-tools got online and does a lot more.

SidBace enables you to manage your collections of Commodore 64 music files on PC currently known as PSID files. You can search for songtitles, authors, copyright data and you can even search STIL and BUG entries if your collection supports it. SidBace supports the HVSC collection since it's huge and song information is treated with great respect. SidBace also serves as a front-end for SidPlay and has an implemented playlist feature with a time-recorder. SidBace exists in two flavours of which the win32 version is the most extended one having everything that is described above: 

The last DOS version (V2.51) is obsolete, it doesn't support STIL info and has a serious bug.
It is capable of porting your sidfiles to SidPlay under Windows when you found your beloved title or author or copyright.
In most other things it's quite simple. It works in DOS and Win'95/'98. 

The Win32 version is much more powerfull and has extended STIL support (includes buglist viewer).


There is no Linux port YET but the application is written in Xbasic of which a Linux / Unix variant exist so the source is portable.

To supply the possibility to make a linux port, the source version of the Normal edition of SidBace32 is been released under GPL terms.

Why do I add the source code of the Win32 version?

The source-code of the normal version is added to motivate porting of the routines to other platforms xbasic runs on and to improve routines I wrote badly or inefficiently.

Please inform me at vvacme@worldonline.nl if you want to have a link to a port placed on this site or you want to supply improved code, you are encouraged to do so. Do explain what you changed and why it's more efficient or better than my work (I want to learn something from it too you know?)

 

Why do I add the source code of the DOS version?

because I don't have time or the willpower to update the DOS version anymore. A lot of routines are very lame and I wrote it in QuickBasic which is too limited in memory. 

If you as QuickBasic programmer think you can still do something worth your while, it is yours for the taken.
Some titles, authors or copyright boxes contain unsupport chars on which the proggy collapse but like I said, I don't have time to remove all that.
