File loading

Recommended Posts

Got a question since I have not done very much on the TI-99/4A side of things with large programs.

 

Can the EA Program image loader load Program image files into ram at >6000 to >7FFF?  If it can, can the files be chain loaded for like UTIL1, UTIL2, UTIL3, UTIL4?

 

I just discovered the code I am working with has only about 250 bytes of free memory and I am going to need more space.  I will not be able to use the >2000 to >3FFF range as it is used for various buffers.


Feedback is appreciated.

A quick test with Classic99 here says that E/A has no problem with it, at least. Just keep in mind it doesn't do any address validation and if you run into the >8000 space after the cart space, you will start corrupting scratchpad. (As my first test did... ;) )

Thanks for the feedback.  I think I am going to need the cartridge space for the TIPI client/server function calls as I do not have enough memory elsewhere.
