These 16 bytes are at the beginning of the file and contain, among other things, the program length and the start address. I tried to load FORTH500.BIN and FORTH500.OBJ with LOADM and got (luckily) "I/O error" as an answer. Only SAVEM generates the header required for LOADM. It would be nice if there was also a PC program for this ...

What would be the goal of such a PC program? Even with an adequate header, a binary file cannot be transferred, because only ASCII files are accepted for serial cable.

Thank you for experimenting with the uuencode and uudecode programs. Currently I am satisfied with the method I use for loading Forth500, but it can be useful later.
