H8trans and H8clxfer
H8trans is used to transfer floppy images in the H8D format to either an
H8 or an H89 computer running Dwight Elvey's H89LDR program on the H8/89.
There are two versions of this program, a command line version, h8clxfer and the GUI version, h8trans. Here is a screenshot.
Both h8clxfer and h8trans are in written in Python verion 2.7 I don't think they will
run in Python 3.x without some modifications.
You will also require the Pyserial package. The Pyserial home page is
if you want more information about it.
The GUI version also requires PyGtk which can be found here
Virtually all modern Linux distributions will have everything except Pyserial installed
For Debian based distros such as Ubuntu, Mint, Knoppix etc install with
sudo apt-get install Pyserial
For RPM based distros such as Fedora and friends you can get Pyserial from http://rpmfind.net
As noted before Python and Pygtk should already be installed in most Linux distributions.
