These questions are for Atari or anyone who may know something about

1) What exactly is Gdos?

2) It is supposedly available to developers now. Is it?

3) There is apparently a fix to ar68 that is rumored to make the size
of the object files even. Is there a fix? What does it fix?

4) Once you put a reasonable number of files on the harddisk it gets
ungodly slow when trying to open a file for write/create. Reading
files is still fine. Why is this so ? ( I use the new AHDI that is
making the rounds nowadays ).

5) The documentation for DUP and FORCE ($45 and $46 in Gemdos) in the
HH guide is very vague. Could you clarify the difference between

As they say, thanks in advance.
