An Amiga TestProgram for all Amigas.  Remove hardware from the parallelport
when doing tests on this port and real interrupt testing.  Don`t use
Amitestkit or diagrom testplugs!  Remove parallelport testplug when done
using the program.

Main features include:

AGA, ECS and OCS screen tests
Audio testing
Sprite testing
Blitter testing
CD32 joypad testing (insert first)
Keyboard testing
CIA testing
ROM testing
CPU testing
FPU testing
MMU testing (write protect test)
RTC testing
RTC jumpstarting
Memory testing
Addressline testing (read guide!)
Real Interrupt testing
Interrupt Request testing
Diskdrive testing
IDE testing
Parallelport testing
SerialPort testing
Chip ID readout

Controlling one Amiga with another one through a null modem cable
*For master start terminal other Amiga will be slave automatic on mainscreen.
TestPackage include EPROM file single socket 68000(+)
TestPackage include EPROM files double sockets 68000(+)
TestPackage include EPROM file single socket 68000(+) CD32

 way around can give the same problem for a null modem connection)
