commands for directory floppy Ti 99 4/a

Recommended Posts

hello everyone!
Here I am again!
I have a problem with floppy on emulator classic 99.
I can't see the contents of the floppy.
I would like to know if there is any command like:
Dir,Catalog,Files.
I have tried all of them but Ti 99 4/a from Exentended Basic does not work.
Thank you all!

Using classic 99, in the user manual it states how to mount a disk and associated files. 

There is FIAD and DSK type to point to. 

Also, choose a cartridge like disk manager so you can get a directory. Without getting too complicated, those are the simplest way to go. Remember, extended basic is for writing programs, not for cataloging a disk, UNLESS you load a program that intentionally is written to perform a disk catalog, yes, there are some programs out there that can do that, but depending on the program, that's about all it would do. You could incorporate that extended basic disk catalog program into your own program that would give you more control if you wanted, but usually a cartridge would be loaded. But in classic 99, using your keyboard and mouse, select disk mount options, you would see the files before hand.

if you use extended basic 2.7 in classic 99 then you can issue CALL CAT("DSK1.") to get a catalog of what is mounted in DSK1.  Same for DSK2 and DSK3.

Directly from the Disk Memory System manual:

 

100 CALL CLEAR
110 DIM TYPE$(5)
120 TYPE$(1)="DIS/FIX"
130 TYPE$(2)="DIS/VAR"
140 TYPE$(3)="TNT/FIX"
150 TYPE$(4)="INT/VAR"
160 TYPE$(5)="PROGRAM"
170 INPUT "MASTER DISK(1-3)? ":A
180 A=INT(A)
190 IF A<1 THEN 170
200 IF A>3 THEN 170
210 OPEN #1:"DSK"&STR$(A)&".",INPUT, RELATIVE,INTERNAL
220 INPUT #1:A$,J,J,K
230 DISPLAY "DSK";STR$(A); " - DISKNAME = ";A$:"AVAILABLE = ";K;"USED = ";J-K
240 DISPLAY:"FILENAME   SIZE TYPE    P":"---------- ---- ------- -"
250 FOR LOOP=1 TO 127
260 INPUT #1:A$,A,J,K
270 IF LEN(A$)=0 THEN 350
280 DISPLAY:A$;TAB(12);J;TAB(17);TYPE$(ABS(A));
290 IF ABS(A)=5 THEN 320
300 B$=" "&STR$(K)
310 DISPLAY SEG$(B$,LEN(B$)-2,3);
320 IF A>0 THEN 340
330 DISPLAY TAB(28);"Y";
340 NEXT LOOP
350 CLOSE #1

If you use RXB you can do a CALL CAT(1) or CALL CAT("1") or CALL CAT(49) or CALL CAT("DSK1.") or X=1 :: CALL CAT(X)

RXB has a smart kind of AI on what you want do to with a CATalog, or you can also use CALL DIR("DSK1.") if you prefer DIRectory.
