I've CSAVED successfully from a coco emulator running on a PC to a real Coco
3 with a "null-cassette" cable. Ditto for playing a .WAV file recorded from
the coco emulator with winamp etc across the same cable.
I plan to use this method to develop my coco-flash software, since the
cartridge precludes having a floppy disk in the coco itself. The original
plan was to use portal-09 to assemble a binary, and then fire up an
emulator, load it from disk, then "save" it across the wire. However,
reading Tim's post in this thread I see that using his utils to create a WAV
directly from the disk file would be a much more convenient way to go...
