ProDOS 8 Technical Note #2

Porting DOS 3.3 Programs to ProDOS and BASIC.SYSTEM

Revised by Matt Deatherage (November 1988)
Revised by Pete McDonald (November 1985)

This Technical Note formerly described the DOSCMD vector of BASIC.SYSTEM.

Note: Yes, there are two "revised" by-lines and no "written" by-line for this Technical Note. This is how I found it online. -- AH

This Note formerly described the DOSCMD vector of BASIC.SYSTEM, which can be used to let BASIC.SYSTEM interpret ASCII strings as disk commands in much the same way DOS 3.3 did. The ProDOS 8 Technical Reference Manual now contains this information in Appendix A.
