I had a very nasty encounter with the SAVE/REPLACE bug
back in December. It ate the source to my terminal program
several times before I realized that it was the SAVE/REPLACE
bug that was erasing it. Another odd thing it did was to leave
many unused sectors still marked as used. Two weeks ago that
disk was full even though there were less than 150 sectors
used by the files. I copied them all to a blank diskette and
when I listed the catalog there were indeed MANY unused sectors.
I initialized the old one and everything was fine.
About uploading on the HESmodem. If you are using the program
that comes with it (I think it is called 64T), according to the
documentation, it doesn't support that feature. I use VIDTEX
whenever I need to do any up/downloading.
And now, a question...I have written as terminal program that
supports full ASCII. The only thing I still need to make it do
is to send a BREAK. Does anyone know if it can be done on the
64 and if so, how ?
