(Almost) finalized projects

There are two other very comprehensive projects concerning computer input/output to several punching and scanning units to process both paper tapes and punched cards:

Historically, these projects have already been joined together, being named Punched Paper Project. Click on the project names to get further information or brows the source code in the SVN.

Content

This new site, located at http://dev.technikum29.de/projects, is still growing. There is much documentational content that is supposed to move from the Subversion repository to this wiki. I am currently not sure whether I want to migrate the contents from the old projects homepage to the new one, so you can still visit the Homepage of the Punched Paper Project (It should be mentioned that that page is quite out of date).
