Quote from: Duke on 15:09, 04 November 22@GUNHED I havent had time to check up on it, but C_FSIZE, *should* report the correct filesize, it does not look in any header, unless you are inside a .DSK image. Can you confirm the file is in the FAT32 filesystem and not inside a .DSK image?I will setup a test when I find some time.

That's different vom M4 functions like C_SIZE.Erm, today everything works with LBA sectors. SymbOS just doesn't use the highlevel filesystem routines of the M4 board, as it is accessing sectors directly (thanks again to Duke for making this possible!) - FAT12/16/32 has been implemented directly in Z80 in SymbOS back in 2004.As Amsdos doesn't support binaries with >64K and random access for big ("ascii" ) files I guess the compatibility of the M4 board is already given. If you need more, you can use C_Size like it is etc.?I still wonder if there is a new standard for handling big files and random file access (seek, random read/write) e.g. in new Amsdos compatible systems like UniDos etc?
Quote from: Prodatron on 23:04, 01 February 23CP/M is able to do random file access.Amsdos not at all. Until you try to introduce some hacks.

Until you try to introduce some hacks.Random Access Database is an AMSDOS BASIC program with some machine code subroutines, not sure what they did as I haven't been able to get a copy. I did come across it many years ago and missed out on the ebay auction so it definitely exists.
