I now have the wdir C code working as well :-)
This give me just the syscalls needed in another program I am working on.

Robert, you are correct as usual.... BUT... you made a mistake.The next-to-the-last change "xxlonglinexx count=4" and "xxlonglinexx count=5" are backwards. The "new" should be the "original".After making that change, it work perfectly. Now to make the same mods to the C code. The only thing I missed in my attempt was the above "count" change which apparently was making it go off into lala land :-)  Bill Pierce"Charlie stole the handle, and the train it won't stop going, no way to slow down!" - Ian Anderson - Jethro Tull My Music from the Tandy/Radio Shack Color Computer 2 & 3https://sites.google.com/site/dabarnstudio/Co-Contributor, Co-Editor for CocoPediahttp://www.cocopedia.com/wiki/index.php/Main_PageGlobal Moderator for TRS-80/Tandy Color Computer Forumshttp://www.tandycoco.com/forum/E-Mail: ooogalapasooo at aol.com  -----Original Message-----From: Robert Gault <robert.gault at att.net>To: CoCoList for Color Computer Enthusiasts <coco at maltedmedia.com>Sent: Thu, Feb 4, 2016 6:06 pmSubject: Re: [Coco] wdir command?
