Save Casio C program to Tape? <SOLVED>
I have a Casio VX4 which has both a BASIC and a C interpreter. I can save BASIC programs to tape but I don't see any way to save a C program. Is there a way? If so, how?

I found it! The F.COM menu (Shift-CASL) has all the file commands (LOAD, SAVE, MOVE, etc.) You can load and save files from either the BASIC or C file areas from this menu. Casio wasn't very consistent here. For BASIC, you can load and save right from either F.COM or BASIC mode. With C, you have to have the F.COM menu displayed. You can't save from C mode.

Is it possible to change the baud rate for saving on tape? IIRC yes, but I'm not sure.

When you press S for save, it types

SAVE"CAS0: (F)_

and waits for you to type in a filename. You can change (F) for 1200 bps to (S) for 300 bps before you type the filename. Also, some recorders require reverse polarity signals. For those recorders, change CAS0: to CAS1:

You'll have to experiment to see which works better for your recorder.
