Grant,

 

Try putting the filename in double quotes,  CSAVE "A", as A is an integer
variable without quotes, and "with", is interpreted 

as an ASCII string??  

 

Just Bob!

Subject: [Altair Computer Club] Altair 680 CSAVE Problems!@ : (

 

I'm having a ton of trouble saving a program on a cassette tape using Altair
680 basic.  Was there a KCACR basic made without the CSAVE command?  My
basic appears to have a CSAVE command, but it won't accept the name!!!!!  :
(

I'm sending this to two groups.  I've been at this problem for hours now...
: (

I'll post a transcript below.  Let me know what I'm doing wrong!  : (

--------------------
.J FD00 (cassette bootstrap rom address)
(basic loading)
(basic loaded)
.J 0000 (run basic...)
MEMORY SIZE?
TERMINAL WIDTH? 80
WANT SIN-COS-TAN-ATN? YES

9604 BYTES FREE

MITS ALTAIR 680 BASIC VERSION 1.1 REV 3.2
--KCACR--
COPYRIGHT 1976 BY MITS INC.

OK
10 PRINT "HELLO"
20 GOTO 10
CSAVE A

?TM ERROR
OK
--------------------

TM is a type mismatch error.  SM is for a command it doesn't understand.
Watch...
--------------------
CSAVE A
?TM ERROR
OK

CSAVE
?SN ERROR
OK

AHHHH!
?SN ERROR
OK

AHHHH! A
?SN ERROR
OK
--------------------

Am I wrong assuming that because it gives me a TM error instead of SN that
it is "trying" to work?  I get the same things for CLOAD...  How in the
world are you supposed to save something to tape!  : (

If I have the wrong version of basic, anyone have the right one?  What will
it take for me to get a copy!  : )  (first smile in this e-mail...  ; )  )

Thanks,
Grant __._,_.___
