I'd seen the web page, but missed the bit about one page per file--I
don't think that's quite correct, but it's probably close. That's
useful. I suspect that the number in the 12th byte might be an
indication of the number of segments involved in a file. I observe that
these are all small numbers or 0.
But that also means that what I suspect is a "filename field" is most
likely just that. Now to figure out the decoding...
I wish there were an operator's manual for the thing around. That alone
would clear up a lot of questions.
