RE: newRPL - build 1001 released!
Anyone: I was experimenting with SDSTO and SDRCL on the calculator with an sdcard installed. I was also experimenting with saving and loading of SaveAs and Open on the emulator. The emulator saves files in an .nrpb format, which is not compatible with the SDRCL of the calculator. If you put one of these .nrpb files onto an sdcard
and try to read it with SDRCL it does not work. I was wondering if there is any way
to EMULATE an sdcard on the emulator so that SDSTO and SDRCL will save and restore files to the emulator that were SDSTOed by the calculator or visa versa. On the emulator if you try to use SDSTO or SDRCL it just says "No SDCARD installed". With a giant hard disk out there just waiting to be used by the emulator this error seems unnecessary. I know that whatever you have on one
either the emulator or calculator you can transfer to the other with USBARCHIVE and USBRESTORE, and I have already used these with great success. Also I was able to grab text programs, put them on an sdcard and open them in the calculator using this program:
Then just put the name of the text file in double quotes on the stack and execute TREAD

I was also able to use the clipboard to cut/paste text into the stack then use STR→ to convert it to a proper program on the emulator. But I was thinking that if the emulator used the current working directory to simulate the sdcard that would make many of the other SD operations more useful. Right now all SD operations just error out with "No SD card installed" on the emulator. This seems a shame since there is plenty of hard drive space available to act like the sdcard. Alterntively, a menu option could allow the user to pick any directory on the computer to act as the SDCARD.
Any thoughts, comments or better ideas are welcome.
