Transferring other files than text and OPL?
« on: Jan 1st, 2001, 12:00pm »
The COMMS menu sends text and OPL source files, but what about other file types?
Here OPL comes in. Using the command
other file types can be sent, and received again by using
The parameters TO$ and FROM$ are the filenames on the PC and Psion respectively, and TYPE% is the file type.
Here is a list of available types:
|0||ODB||Normal data file.|
|1||OPL||Procedure source file.|
|2||OB2||Diary file for the CM/XP.|
|3||OB3||Complete procedure file (both source and object code, if available).|
|4||OB4||Comms link set-up file.|
|7||OB7||Notepad file for the LZ.|
As well as these, there are file types 8 to 15, which have extensions OB8, OB9, OBA ... OBF. These are not used by Psion, though various commercial programs do make use of these.
Hint: you may also enter the commands in CALC
