That means I have to jump through a bunch of hoops to actually be able to load a SEQ file. You want to sometimes. Because I don't know if we have very good file readers. So might as well load one that way if you want a close look at such a file, in the built-in monitor. Not to mention the fact, we have no 'diff' for the Commodore! Thus, got to pretend to accomplish comparisons manually. - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list. To unsubscribe: echo unsubscribe | mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
