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.

Oh, I have never used that (always use autoswap.lst). Hm, I am nearly finished with the monitor and like a quite a bit. Only 41 bytes left now, let's see what can fit into that... :/. A tiny tiny wedge with @ command channel support might be feasible.

Some update: I meanwhile decided against the memory monitor, as this is probably rarely useful and could be loaded from a file for the few occasions where it is needed.

Instead I was able to include a wedge, for now including

@ for printing the error channel
@[command] for sending commands to the drive
@#[num] for selecting the device number

I will try to include selecting swap lists in the browser, too.

Adding load&run is also on my list: do you think this could simply replace the "load ,8" in the browser? Or does anyone feel the need to load programs ,8 and not execute them right away?

Can be optional, like on Action Replays:
F1-load & run
F2-load

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...
