I know about unlink, but I didn't know that about delete! Yow! I
guess I should chattr everything P.
I'll rewrite my LINKSV.MC to use a list of -.SVs, and (UNLINK,
LINK arg/2) to avoid problems.
One gotcha I remember this from the past is the variable syntax:
COMMAND source dest
COMMAND dest source
depending on the command! (MOVE vs. XFER, etc)
I found NSYSGEN on one of the scroungy tapes, and made a custom
system, and have 45KW of memory available, so not fortran5 and
fortran4 both run.
I'm getting the hang of RDOS again. It's often like a drawer full
of scalpels when all you need is a butter knife :-)
(for non-RDOS users)
INIT DP0F "mounts" fixed disk platter
INIT/F DP0F "formats" fixed disk platter!
It's pretty nice though. My big fat RDOS gen with all the buffers
and stacks, forground/background, mapped memory support consumes
Time to get the other console up!
(Not a power plant, W=word, B=byte. Power-wise, it consumes about
1.2 of those kind of KWs.)
