I MEAN LIKE FORMAT COMMANDS AND COMMANDS THAT WRITE SPECIAL DOS FILES LIKE DOS.SYS AND DUP.SYS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. THANKYOU AE501 ** Answered by JOHN SUCHY (aa271) on Mon Jun 15 03:48:29 1987 ** There isn't room here to duplicate much of that information. you should get ahold of a good reference such as THE ATARI BASIC REFERENCE MANUALor SAMS PROGRAMMER'S GUIDE TO ATARI. To tantalize you into finding out more, I can say that: If used properly, XIO 18 will fill a graphic-screen outline, and XIO 254 willformat a disk. Your Co-sysop John E. Suchy aa271 Thanks for asking.
