Where can I find a memory map of a Power C 64 program? I need to answer the following questions:

* Is the BASIC ROM disabled?
* Is the memory at $C000 used?
* What other memory sections are free?

I hope I can be of help to You.
I have the Spinnaker Better Working POWER C software.

A long time ago I printed the Directory using the DISK LOG PRG.

The PRG Files on Side A

SHELL 0801 1678 15 BLOCKS
COMPILER 2000 7ACD 92 BLOCKS
CDE.SH 1800 5F59 72 BLOCKS
TRANSLATOR 2000 558A 54 BLOCKS
TRIM.SH 1800 5827 65 BLOCKS
CC.SH 1800 1C28 5 BLOCKS
ED.SH 1800 3680 31 BLOCKS
LINK.SH 1800 2787 16 BLOCKS
SHAPES.SH 1800 31EE 27 BLOCKS

Also on Side A are a bunch of SEQ Files.

The PRG Files on Side B

TERM.C1 V2 C000 C737 8 BLOCKS
TERMINAL BOOT 0801 0F59 8 BLOCKS
INSTRUCTIONS 0801 08DE 1 BLOCK

Also on Side B are a bunch of SEQ Files, some of those filenames
start with:

C0XXX.OBJ and C10XX.OBJ so it looks to me like POWER C uses memory
in the $C000 range.

I never learned to use C, but years ago I was in the FIDO BASIC Echo
and the messages there were about Microsoft Q-Basic and QuickBasic.
The Echo might had been called QuickBasic, I can't remember correctly.

But I used some of the hints I got there to write PRG's for my C=64.

.... I looked in my mailbox today and it was empty just like my head.
