Hi all! I guess the main question here is whether the file system should be expandable or not. If not, then a simple directory in the begining of the file is ok, but if you want to expand it, there is no place to expand the directory. For my GeckOS/A65 I wrote a small ROM filesystem that is linked by storing the size of the next segment (file) at the start, so the file handler could jump from one to the next segment. Using an $FFFF as end marker gave me the possibility to expand the (EP)ROM by overburning just the next part from the empty EPROM $FF value to the data values :-) Andre David Wood wrote: > > Take a look at how the sampls are stored in a standard mod file.
