Didn't you forget about other command.com metacharacters [<>*?/] and the colon? Also, deleted file names are marked with 0xe5 or something like that in the first character of the file name. By the way, I recently learned that VMS, which has a really funny way of specifying directory paths, has a special file system that supports Unix-like directory paths. > And, I can now report that VIP is functional, and also supports > JiffyDOS.

Yesterday I noticed that Microchip's PIC family of microcontrollers has been extended by some USB capable ones, such as the 18F2455. The chips in that family should be sufficient for a combined USB to IEEE-488 and serial bus interface (and maybe cassette as well). Any takers? The same chip could also be used for adapting Commodore keyboards to USB HID. The only open question is: how do you flash the firmware over the USB? I didn't find any Linux-related documentation for that. Marko Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
