The difference between a PRG file and an SEQ file (besides the bit in the directory entry) is that a PRG starts with the load address as a low-byte, high-byte pair. USR files are undefined by CBM DOS, and REL files are different depending on the exact version you have (super-side-sectors and the like). There's lots of code in every drive to support relative files. I've writted professional code to manipulate them, but at this point in history, I don't think the amount of coding required to continue to support them is worth the payback. Has anyone ever used them for anything more interesting than a simple index file, a la electronic Rolodex? -ethan === Infinet has been sold. The domain is going away in February.
