New features in this version:
Support for running an "AUTOEXEC.BAS" program at system startup. You can
hold down the SHIFT key to suppress this.
A new EXP command which can be used to quickly mount and run a program like
the SDC Explorer. Think of EXP as shorthand for Explorer or Express. The
EXP command is roughly equivalent to the following:
DRIVE 1,"/SDCEXP.DSK" : RUN "AUTOEXEC.BAS:1"
The WRITE MEM command will now write to the FE00-FEFF locations in the
flash banks when running on a CoCo 3. Likewise, the COPY MEM command now
reads from flash for these locations on a CoCo 3.
You can change the machine type for DriveWire communications to something
other than the one detected by SDC-DOS at startup by entering:
Specify 1, 2 or 3 for n according to the CoCo model whose speed capability
you want to use:
1 = 38,400 bps
2 = 57,600 bps - requires op-amp replacement on CoCo 1
3 = 115,200 bps - allowed only on a CoCo 3
