Richard, the utilos Stephen referred to are in sever "archive collections" buried a zip file in the malted media archives.They are a collection of 3 utils by Bob Devries. "LSN0", FileSize", and "FileInfo". I posted a disk with the files in my dropbox but I don't think they'll solve your problem as they in no way explain how dmode works. LSN0 just give some basic info of the contents of lsn0, but not all of what dmode can modify.The "defs" files Gene & I mentioned are your best bet on understanding the descriptor table.Here's the disk: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23059963/Stuff/Bob%27s%20Utils.dsk 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: Gene Heskett <gheskett at wdtv.com>To: coco <coco at maltedmedia.com>Sent: Tue, Mar 29, 2016 7:14 pmSubject: Re: [Coco] FrustratedOn Tuesday 29 March 2016 14:40:47 Richard E.
