Shakespeare on the CPC
« on: 12:28, 23 April 19 »
The file displayed was part of a series that should have all been stored on the same 3.5" CPC disk. Why this particular copy is in isolation on this disk is a bit of a mystery, but then...........it was 25 years ago.

Update.
Having checked after the video was made - CPM Protext (and probably the Rom version which I use) can load in files up to 39K in size.

I believe protext cpm opens the file from the disc directly rather than opening it in ram. Therefore the limit is the size of the disc
