Re: Almost (In-) Complete List of esxDOS DOT-Commands

Please add info about .DFWLOAD. It is used to upload other firmware to the so-called "mapram". Mapram is suitable e.g. for testing firmware without the need to re-flash divide/divmmc.

.TSPLAY is missing. Any info about it? Who is the author of this command?

Thanks!

Some commands with similar names have different authors and code, e.g. STRINGS or DATE.
DATE cmd in 0.8.8 is made by ub880d and has nothing to do with Trucco's one.
Its origin is here: http://oldcomp.cz/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=7798#p98622
The same with the CAL cmd: http://oldcomp.cz/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=7798#p98678

Many commands for zx-uno and specnext are hardware dependent and unusable on a normal Speccy.
That could be a reason for splitting this list into separate papers?

Dear SCjoe,

Yes, it´s a little bit confusing having DOT-commands with the same name but different behavior or for different hardware.

Because of lack of time and easyness I´ll keep all the commands on one page. Only mentioning special Requirements like  hardware in the Comment Column of the list.

But I will add all commands that become known to me, so even this excellent looking .CAL (or is it called .DATE ?) you mentioned:  (Have not further tested this one yet - this is just a "screenshot" from the Forum-Thread you linked).

It´s really a great Thread you´ve linked to. I like it!

Re: Almost (In-) Complete List of esxDOS DOT-Commands

Would it be possible for you to give the ZX Next and ZX Uno specific commands a different color? That way it'll be instantly apparent.

Should be no problem. On next update I will add colours for ZX Next and ZX Uno or add a column which holds this information.
