Release id #152591 : SD2IEC Kernal 1.0

(Moving the discussion of wedge to a forum post)

If feasible, it would be nice to get the Big Three DOS wedge commands:

@ (command channel)
/ (load ,8)
% (load ,8,1)

The browser is a nice option, but the direct route is handy as well if both can be supported.

At the moment, you can press Return in the browser to load,8,1 or Shift-Return to do load,8. Adding a third option would require a new key unfortunately...

Guess WITHIN browser everything's fine, my wish for F-Keys referred to mere KERNAL outside browser

CRT had the request for the auto-run from the browser, and it seems like a nice idea to me. I just added it and it even did not cost a single byte (I still had the load/run string in which proved to be useful now, unbelievable how wasteful I was with memory :-)).

BTW: I did remove the possibility to use the wedge commands in Basic programs and saved some bytes by doing so. It seems utterly wrong to me to rely on a modified kernal or a loaded wedge in a Basic program.

Function keys and .lst file support are next on the list.

The classic convention for load-and-run is ^ (up-arrow). Is that too costly in terms of bytespace so you can leave / as a standard ,8 load?

I estimate it costs 25 bytes including a respective help text on the screen. Let's see how much the .lst support costs, potentially that does not fit in anyway anymore. In this case arrow-up might be a candidate to use up the final bytes.

BTW: F1=run and F3=list are in now, currently there are 66 bytes left.

Swap lists can now be loaded from the browser, 27 bytes left...

important suggestion:
Please try to user Upper Font as Default in Browser

Yeah, I also thought about that. It negatively impacts the display of directory art in disk images, but I guess more often you will list folders that have been created on PCs.

I am currently ironing out the last bugs, hopefully 2.0 is ready soon...

I just uploaded version 2:

http://csdb.dk/release/?id=152995&show=summary#summary

I think I had my share of kernal hacking now. Some requested features made it in, some just did not fit. Only 2 bytes free in the end after lots of squeezing, all the low hanging fruits are exploited and further size reduction needs more work than seems worthwhile to me.

I added the source code, so feel free to mangle to your liking :-).
