Topic: file manager esxdos

Hello.
I am new here.
I use exodos a long time and I am very satisfied with its performance.
Is is planned development overlay nmi as a simple file manager?
Will it be possible service functions to copy, delete, rename files, etc.
How nmi from an overlay you can change disks hd0, hd1?

unfortunately, there is no enough of free memory for expanding nmi browser more. on the other side, nmi browser was designed to be just a file "loader" with fast access after poweron/reset, similar to what other firmwares for divide (demfir, fatware..) have.

i think file manager with more functions should be an application in zx memory (so it will have more space for code, buffers and variables). we just need someone to code it ;]

For me, a file browser inside .TAP is a good thing.

May I suggest something to add to NMI browser, maybe you could find some spare bytes for it:

Can you please think over adding a option "e" which just loads a program called e.tap or e.basic

So users just can start an "extension"-program from within NMI file browser without need to scroll to this file and press ENTER.

May this "Extension"-program something each user define for it´s own e.g. a future "esxDOS File Manager" or just something else.
If some more Bytes are available, there maybe up to ten user-defininable programs directly startable by pressing 0,1,2,3...9 and the programs have names like 0.tap, 1.tap etc.

Hope you like my idea and there are some bytes free for it...
