Looking for a device programmer that doesn't require Weendoze

I don't know all the devices that it will program, but the EMP-20 from
Needhams runs under DOS. I've used it for many types of EPROMS and it
comes standard with adapter cards that configure it for EPROMS. But it
may have additional adapters for the devices you need.

It is a discontinued model, but I have one to sell if it does what you
want and you'd like it. E-mail me privately if interested.
