  TRS DOS 1.3 Disk Instruction Course 1 by Bill Degnan - 04/07/2005 20:15

I went through a lot if not all of the Radio Shack TRS 80 Disk Instruction Course version 1.0 Cat No. 26-2007

Here is a summary of the course:

BASIC2 - Loads Basic II (exit DOS Mode)
CMD"S" - Return to DOS mode

DOS Commands
SAVE
--file names must start with a letter
examples:
SAVE "LINPRO" (save defult to default drive)
SAVE "LINPRO/BAS:1" (optional, if basic program to drive 1)
SAVE "LINPRO/BAS.SEC:1" (password protect)

LOAD
RUN
KILL
MERGE
CMD

Files and Extensions (optional, for id purps.)
BASIC PROGRAM - BAS
DATE FILE - DAT
COMMAND FILE - CMD
SYSTEM FILE - SYS
OBJECT FILE - OBJ

SAVE"LINPRO",A - saves in ASCII rather than default compressed format

LOAD
LOAD"LINPRO"

RUN
RUN"LINPRO"

If program saves as PAYROLL/BAS.RT33N:0
run it with:
RUN"PAYROLL/BAS.RT33N
or here is a short cut
LOAD"LINPRO",R

KILL
delete unnecessary files on disk
KILL"LINPRO"
KILL"GAUS/BAS.KKEE:1"
KILL LINPRO:2 (delete a file on drive 3, logical drive 2 (drives are numbered 0,1,2...)

MERGE
Combine a program in memory with another stored on disk in ascii format
MERGE"DISKPROG/TXT" merges disk program DISKPROG/TXT with program currently in memory. NOTE: I believe that this process overwrites memory line numbers with disk version of same! (If some one could confirm this for me)
