Sometimes when you open a file using F. FILE
you get the error message:
To solve this problem, the program FRAMDISK was written to create a special
ram-disk called the "Fram-disk". The Fram-disk uses the free
RAM under the XL operating system. This is the 14K in every XL and XE
ATARI which due to its relative inaccessibility usually remains unused.
FRAMDISK contains the most important routines used by disk oriented programs: OPEN, CLOSE, GETBYTE, PUTBYTE, NOTE and POINT.
FRAMDISK resides in RAM at $540 to $573 and $600 to $6FF.
SOURCGEN V.3.2 offers special funtions in connection with the Fram-disk. (See U. UTILITY)
Under SOURCGEN V.3.2 the Fram-disk remains initialized after pressing <RESET>. With other programs, the Fram-disk can be reactivated after a reset by a jump through $600 (JSR $600). The content of the Fram-disk remains intact.
If you want to use the Fram-disk without SOURCGEN, you need only load
the file FRAMDISK to initialise the Fram-disk !
