Editing text files on the RAM disk can be done with a separate BASIC program called edit500 available at: http://www.andrewwoods3d.com/pce500/

Or you could use my new Forth500 TLOAD command defined below that loads Forth from a TEXT file created in BASIC with the built-in BASIC editor:

Thank you for this suggestion and for this clever program. However I'm currently busy with other things, and I will not test them soon.
I've just spent an hour trying the INCLUDE command, that I have never used so far, but for some reason it didn't work. Maybe I'm messing something in the file format, or I've forgotten one important detail, but I give up.
I will certainly return to Forth and to the PC-E500 next winter.

However, if this program works as expected, it should completly satisfy my needs Smile.
So, thank you again!
