Re: X-IDE directory (2)

Just to throw this out there as I believe as it's already been mentioned
(I believe) that the multi-drive coding has been removed. 

I'd love to see a 'CI' command that would change the image associated
with a drive number, eg: Load "$1:",8 would show me the d64 image
previously 'ci'maged. Drive 0 could always be the main drive. This would
make copying / transferring from d64's a bit easier. 

As always, since I'm not coding it - complete understanding of total
ignorance of my suggestion is more than understood. :-)
