December 16, 2014 – Phillip Ereaut Has Passed Away

Phillip Ereaut passed away on December 6th at age 76. Phil lived in Australia and was one of the first people to provide utilities to fill needs of the TRS-80 emulation community. Back in 2006 Phil wrote a program to extract files from a DSK/DMK image which was useful when all other means failed. He also wrote the only utility to display what the PDRIVE settings of a DSK image were (now a fuction that TRSTools offers). Finally, he wrote a program to show the track data and allow for hex editing of DMK and DSK images. Phil was a great supporter of the TRS-80 emulation community, and he will be missed.


  1. Bye Phil you will be missed

    We were trainees together in the PMG (Telstra) Technicians in Training.
    We kept in contact via the TRS-80’s for many years.

    At Peace
