Quote from: Targhan on 20:57, 06 February 21Some remarks:- A little note in the doc about FAT16 not working could help some people (like me ).- It took me a bit of time to understand that ":" must be put when using the Drive command. ùdrive,"a","SD:" or "DFA:". Maybe a shortcut without ":" could be done? Anyway, there is no direct example in the doc about such simple command, you should add it.- Also add an example like "load"DFA:"" to show how quickly one can change the drive.
Quote from: Targhan on 21:02, 06 February 21One more thing: I believe this is out of the scope of UniDOS (you tell me), but it would be great to explore a DSK like a folder. But I don't think a CPC has the firepower to do that.

Quote from: SOS on 07:04, 09 February 21Yes, the CPC has the firepower, but the speed is "retro".
Quote from: Targhan on 09:25, 09 February 21To me, the problem is handling a 200k DSK file, not quite simple on CPC.
Quote from: OffseT on 10:48, 09 February 21Regarding memory, it should not require more memory than regular floppy handling (in fact, it should even require less).
Quote from: SOS on 12:05, 09 February 21You need more memory as a normal floppy interface, e.g. LBA-Start of the DSK-File, DSK-Geometrics, ...
Quote from: m_dr_m on 21:20, 13 February 21Besides DSKs, do you see a solution to preserve CAT Arts?
Quote from: zhulien on 10:10, 17 February 21With the DOS Nodes, DOSNode_GetFreeSpace returns 32 size in kilobytes, maximum of 64megabytes? how would a mass storage like an SD card be handled?
Quote from: zhulien on 10:17, 17 February 21for DOSNode_OutWriteStream and DOSNode_WriteNVRAM, if writing beyond the end of the file, is an error given or should the file grow? If growing, is it padded with anything?
Quote from: zhulien on 00:00, 18 February 21Thanks, with regard to the 2k non-volatile memory, am I correct in that we can have filesystem nodes that can provide a subset of full functionality by not implementing the non-volatile memory functions?
Quote from: zhulien on 00:00, 18 February 21Also is it likely that one of the reserved 7 functions would be later used for a device status, such as... is it write protected, is it readonly (i.e. could be a CDROM or internet FS) so that developers can make software that behaves instead of just erroring?
Quote from: zhulien on 01:28, 12 March 21Are extension nodes already working for UniDOS now? [...]
Quote from: zhulien on 01:28, 12 March 21I just noticed that the Node extensions can support their own implementation of NVRAM. [...]
Quote from: zhulien on 16:57, 20 March 21I created a skeleton file to fill in all the code for an extension, what is the reason for returning statuses in the C flag? I would have used Z flag. [...]
Quote from: OffseT on 10:28, 21 March 21May I ask which extension you plan to support?
Quote from: zhulien on 14:09, 21 March 21Actually I am not sure yet, I am hoping it isn't too hard to create a virtual fs on a webserver.
