CPM on ROM - using the TYPE command
« on: 09:03, 07 January 20 »
This short (1:33) video show an ASCII text document displayed using the CPM TYPE command.

Hardware used - 6128 Plus, Rombox and 3.5" B drive.

This version of CPM was modified to utilise the ROMDOS D20 (792k) disk format available for the CPC from 1988 onwards.
