I would like to be in DOS and do this.

 

c

text.txt, s:

 

This gives me an Error 130

What can I do to resolve this.

 

Thanks

I believe the error 130 is because no filename was specified for the S: (screen) device.  Try this:
c

text.txt, s:text.txt

I think you are also better off targeting E: over S:

(for me the latter displays an inverse space for each end-of-line)

Error 130 is handler doesn't exist.  You need an uppercase S.  Filename shouldn't be needed, all of the OS-resident handlers ignore them anyway.

 

I used to do such things a lot with S: - easy way to see what's in a file without erasing your program in memory.

My preference is for S: over E: - put up with the cursor residuals, as it's usually less annoying than the E: behaviour which is to process every control character - backspace, delete line, move cursor etc. which can turn it into an unreadable experience.

 

Also in Dos 2.x do it without allowing to use program memory - it's usually more desirable anyway to have the short buffering/print sequence as you'll usually just hit Break once you work out what the data is anyway.

Hello guys

 

And make sure there is no space between the comma and the s.

 

Sincerely
