I tried compiling, I had to clean before as *.o are included in the zip, but got the following error due to a missing file :



unix.c:18:21: fatal error: termcap.h: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type


                     ^
compilation terminated.
<commande interne> : la recette pour la cible « unix.o » a échouée

You should have told me and I could have included some in the package.

1/ |A
OK I can reproduce consistently: if firmware zone is zeroed, then I have to enter |AOFF to access A, despite my configuration (cf config.bas).
I like the fact that:
• X-MASS is the default on reset.
• The path is conserved across warm resets.
I'd like to have AOFF behavior forced all the time.
the "firmware zone" is zeroed could be a problem.
Please could you describe the completely point "1" with PM more clearly?

3/ 64 files per directory limit
I got a crash each time I reached 65 files.
Code: [Select]
|mkdir,"tmp":|cd,"tmp"
for i=1 to 99:print i:save str$(i):next
-> Boom after i=63.
I can reproduce that now (thanks), crashes only on FAT16.
Prio 1


4/ FAT format
I'm not sure to see why FAT32 format couldn't be restricted to 128Mb, so that:
• |FREE is accurate
FAT32 is not restricted to 128MB, you can use large media's.
I dont optimize the format.bas anymore, because you can format your media with Windows, Linux, ....
The FREE-Display on FAT32 must be correct, else it's a strong indicator, that something is going very wrong!
FREE on FAT16 is..... >:(  :'(  :'( :'(   So this should be nearly correct....

• More importantly, disc full is properly detected and no overwriting occurs!
I have checks against possible overwriting-issues, so this "should" be not occur.
Disc full detection: Should be work too
Do you have problems with this two points?


And not that big in memory! Tell me how much space do you have (:
Much too few.
Maybe (or not) i will later release an add-on-rom, where i have enough space.

13/ Starkos hangs with 'GetDir'
It could be a bug with Starkos, but if the ROM is fully AMSDOS compatible why wouldn't it work?
I check this later

I must now hurry-up to continue with Symbiface3-Programming, i think maybe april-mai i will correct the bugs.
(there are other open issues, which i want to fix, e.g. FlashFloppy-Support on a Plus-Machine)

Sorting, kind of, could be done by |dir,"a*", |dir,"b*" etc..Maybe a command like |dira2z could be introduced, which intern runs through the alphabet and calls the dir-output with filemasks from "a*" to "z*"
That's an interesting approach, modulo some caveats:
  • What if all files begins by A? By the time you fix these kinds of issue, you realize that you should have done radix sort from the beginning!
  • Calling dir and then filtering is elegant design-wise, but would be too inefficient.
  • No, you shouldn't introduce a new RSX! You don't want a ton of commands with distinct flaws. You should have one command only, which does the right thing!

9/ Sort directory712 files !? I don't mind if the sorting is kind of disabled for such extreme cases.
It doesn't mean it should be thrown away for day to day usage !
We could come with a pretty fast solution for directories with <=128 files.
And not that big in memory! Tell me how much space do you have (:

Thank you for your attention!

Technical Support / Re: 3" disks from other machines
« Last post by ASiC on Today at 00:11 »
Slightly (?) off topic:Years ago, when I jumped back on the cpc, I was in a similar situation; A couple of non-readable disks and no software to format them.
I used an emulator to run discology and covert a copying/format utility to tape and saved it on a CDT file.Then I convert the CDT to wav and connect the speaker-out of the pc to the tape-in of the cpc.
Worked like a charm  :)
