I use the old basic to open the sequential file t.dat. I call a machine language routine to list the user’s file to console out. Then I use the old basic to close the file. I listed the old basic file a few times before I got the message that I needed to do that in a machine language routine. Loading the user file is going to be a harder. Console out is very strait forward. Not so console in. I plan to use a machine language routine to erase the current user file and set up the entry address for the next machine language routine. I plan to use the old basic to open the sequential file for input. Then for i=0 to -1 step 0: line input #1, l$: usr(l$) – (to pass the line to the machine language routine which will crunch it and put it at the end of the user file) : i=eof(1):next:close(1):end (which returns to direct basic. I’ve done each part separately. I just need to put them together. Sometimes easier said than done. Once I have that done I plan to show it to the world here. As though anyone will see it. lol.
