U. UTILITY ( V. 3.2 )
1. Command Chains
The command chain will be executed by hitting <RETURN> and can be repeated at any time by hitting <@> (<SHIFT-8>).
E.g. Entering /;FD:FRAMDISK^OD:FRAMDISK^P540^H540 6FE/F: will do the following:
The file "FRAMDISK" is opened.
The character "^" is interpreted by SOURCGEN as "<RETURN>".
Command chains can easily be entered into the symbol table and then saved
as an SMB file. You can use the addresses $100 to $1FF for this. Since
the 6502 stack is located in this address area, it is unlikely that there
will be any normal symbol entries there.
- Use the A or L function to list the command chain on the screen.
You might wish to save all your command chains to the AUTOLOAD.SMB file
so that they will always be accessible immediately after loading SOURCGEN.
2. Using the Fram-disk
Type the name of a disk file and hit <RETURN>. The file will now be copied into the Fram-disk.
By entering a value for <SIZE>,
you determine the number of double-density sectors in the ram-disk . (A
sector comprises 253 ($FD) Bytes.)
If no file name is entered the last file opened using F. FILE will be loaded into the Fram-disk.
When a file is loaded, the start address of the ram-disk is displayed. $BC00 to $C000 remain unused since this is usually the location of the Display List and the screen RAM.
If you simply want to set the size of the ram-disk without loading a
file, just enter <SIZE>
followed by the character "/".
