     Does anyone know how to enter/save LARGE programs on cassette in XBASIC?
I was working on an assembler for my 99/4A and when I tried to save my newest
copy, I got the message "TAPE FILE TOO BIG" or something to that effect.
Fortunately, I have my backup copy, but it is still FRUSTRATING.

Anyone know a fix to get around that?

   Since you are using EX-Basic, the best solution would probably be to
modularize your program and then use statements like RUN "CS1" to load
and run the next phase of the assembler.  Although this doesn't allow
you to pass variables to the next phase, it is about the only way to
get a big program in a small machine.  If you really want an assembler,
than you should look into finding an EDITOR/ASSEMBLER package and a
disk system.  Beleive me, it is more than worth the money.
