For DECB the only change to saving, loading, opening files is that the files now reside on SD card instead of a floppy drive. The Disk ROM has been patched to do this. File names are restricted to the normal 8.3 format. There is another patch that allows programs to be saved and loaded from the flash chip. That patch is to the Color BASIC ROM. It completely replaces the CLOAD CSAVE commands. The commands are FLOAD, FSAVE, and FDIR and the code was written completely from scratch and it allows a long file name. The syntax is FSAVE “file name”,S where S equals a slot number from 0-19.  And FLOAD,S .  Each slot is 32k in size and will hold any program up to 32k in length.
