On the PET machines, both work equally well. The internal code is actually indeed different between the DOS4 and the DOS2 commands. LOAD"0:$",8 actually reads a file in one go, i.e. send: LISTEN, SECLISTEN(open), FILENAME, UNLISTEN send: TALK receive: all file data until EOF send: UNTALK (not sure about the close though) CATALOG or DIRECTORY on the other hand reads the $ file in parts. I.e. IIRC after each line the computer sends an UNTALK, and then, after processing (displaying) the line, sends another TALK to continue. I had to work around this on my IEEE drive emulations... But that is for the PET. My assumption is that it is the same for the CBM-II though. In the PET I had to patch the IEEE routines to work on higher CPU speeds (when using the PET ROMs in my CS/A computer at 2MHz). The symptom IIRC was that between sending the file name and sending the TALK to receive the data the computer became too fast. But it would give an error message on LOAD"$",8 but would not hang. What other commands have this problem? Can you patch the IEEE code? Then you could problem try to port the patch here http://www.6502.org/users/andre/cbmhw/ryofat40/index.html to the CBM-II and try it. AndrÃ© -- GRATIS! Movie-FLAT mit Ã¼ber 300 Videos.
