SlotRom is a utility to write out to an image file the declaration ROM of each Nubus Card in some Macintosh models. It was made at the request of Arbee (AKA R. Belmont), to assist the MESS emulator project, and debugged in collaboration with him.
It is still in development. This alpha version writes out debugging information to a file named "dbglog".
To use, just launch the SlotRom application. It should write out a file for each NuBus card named such as "Slot9.ROM" (to the folder containing the application) and then immediately quit.
SlotRom can be used even on a machine without a working keyboard, mouse, and/or screen. This can be done by preparing a floppy disk with SlotRom set to be the startup application (in System 6 or earlier, not System 7), and replacing the finder with the "AutoQuit" application. Make sure there is enough free disk space for the ROM image file.
The ROM image files that SlotRom saves are copyright Apple Computer, and may not be redistributed.
