RE: FORTH for the SHARP PC-E500 (S)
Transfer over serial is slow because of the loop with the POKE instruction, but it's reliable. And waiting a few minutes is not a big deal. It's done just once. Wink

I have a 256KB machine, so I don't have space problems.
Can you confirm that an internal RAM disk "E:" must be created after loading Forth500? The only memory map I know for the PC-E500 is in this page:

I suppose that space for RAM disk E: is reserved just ahead of the machine code area.

That's good to know. But I have to study your tutorial first!
