It's a bit on the slow side (2 mins, 20 secs to read a floppy, slower when writing) but it gets the job done and didn't cost me much. Every .d64 Image I create gets stored with a .txt of the same name that contains the directory listing. That way finding something is just a grep away. :) Gerrit Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2011-09-19 19:00:37
