add devel/lib1541img

This is a GUI tool for creating and editing D64 disk images (for the Commodore 1541 floppy drive used with the C64). It uses a library, lib1541img. Both ports are attached.

Comment 4 Max Brazhnikov freebsd_committer 2020-03-26 19:01:50 UTC
Felix, wouldn't emulator category or sysutils better suited for this port?
Comment 5 Felix Palmen 2020-03-26 19:48:14 UTC
I'm the author of this tool and I still found it difficult to pick a matching category here :) Maybe "sysutils" could be fitting, although it's only interesting for users of old 8-bit Commodore systems.

"Emulators" would be pretty far-fetched: it re-implements the filesystem used on these old floppy discs, but it doesn't emulate anything.

I picked "archivers" because IMHO, an image containing a filesystem is "kind of" an archive, and the tool supports two archive formats that are/were widespread in the C64 scene: "Zipcode DiskZip" and "Lynx". But if you think archivers is a bad choice, feel free to change it! Of course it isn't a perfect match.

Comment 7 Max Brazhnikov freebsd_committer 2020-03-27 09:54:33 UTC
Hi Felix! I've made minor changes to the ports, also added emulators as secondary category: I've never seen C64 in reality, only as emulators :)
