When using esxdos, is quite confusing to have to use a mix between .commands and old commands (like CAT). While browsing a disk there are countless times I make the mistake of writing ".cat"
You can duplicate "LS" file in BIN directory but as new filename use "CAT". Now will .CAT in esxdos work identically with .LS command :-)
For faster work and your better comfort you can duplicate + rename also other command in BIN direcotry. For example I use ".I" instead ".TAPEIN", ".O" instead ".TAPEOUT", ".S" instead ".SNAPLOAD", etc...
Yes, I had already copied LS into CAT, but it is not a general solution, cause other commands like ERASE don't have a matching dot command.
About the trick of renaming/copying, it's a good idea, in fact I will probably rename or copy some commands.
By the way, is there any documentation about how to make a dot command. I've tried to disassemble one but as I'm not sure if there is a header (for the "executable") I'm not sure what I got did have any sense. Also I tried to create a simple assembler code (just a RET) wih pasmo assembler, and save it in different formats (as binary, as .tap, as binary with +3DOS header..) and then add it to bin folder, but none worked.
Is there any docs?
