Loading and Saving FOCAL code as RAW

Post by smartin41 »

Hello,
I am new to this forum and the DM41X. I am trying to work with the Save and Load RAW file functionality. I thought I could save a user program (plain old FOCAL) in RAW to the FAT disk to use as offline storage then Load it back into memory at a later time for use. Although I can save a file in RAW and it shows up in the file list (/PROG), many times it won't load back to main memory. I am not sure if this is a bug or that I am trying to use this functionality in an unintended way?

Thanks,
Steve

Before you load or save, clear the alpha register because it can sometimes conflict with what you enter manually.

loading:
GTO.. to the end of memory or your program may overwrite the current one.
setup
3 load RAW program
select using arrows
press enter


saving:
go to the first line of the program you want to save or you save an empty program
setup
4 save RAW program
select using arrows or choose new file
press enter

Thanks, there might have been something in ALPHA causing a conflict or I didn't pack prior to the load. At the moment it does appear to be working.

By the way, I'm going through 'CST' instead of 'SETUP' to get to the load and save RAW functions.
