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. :-) On Thu, 2008-01-10 at 20:48 +0100, Ruud@baltissen.org wrote: > Hallo Jim, > > > > but what would CI do? > > Change the image. > > > > Should they be simply these 2 letter mnemonics, or go with the idea of > > Memory-Write and be M-I, C-I, and R-I? > > A 2 letter mnemonics is less programming and therefore less ROM.
