Hallo allemaal, I ran into a bug in JiffyDOS. I told you about the problems I had with copying sequential files. The source file had sectors, each filled with A's, B's, C's etc. After the creation (or copying) of the file I was missing one sector every time. After spending some hours looking for what caused the problem, I tried my program on a real 1541-II. Surprise, same problem! The only thing you have to do to see what I mean is to write (a multple of) 254 bytes to a sequential file. Now add the number of blocks occupied by the files and the number of free blocks: you will have one short. FYI: this 1541-II has no way to switch to the original DOS, so I couldn't test if it is just a bug in JiffyDOS or a bug that originates from the original DOS. But I cannot imagine that I'm the first person in xx years encountering this problem. Is this a known bug or not? -- ___ / __|__ / / |_/ Groetjes, Ruud Baltissen \ \__|_\ \___| http://Ruud.C64.org Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
