thanks you a lot.
after TYPE AUTOEXEC.BAT i got just "DP".
then, everything went as it should. yet, being in BASIC, i didn´t know, how to follow your instruction "Type that listing you want to have run." Question

sorry. i believe, i´ve understood, what you meant, but i keep getting syntax errors in basic, and i cannot help myself even using MSX BASIC original manual, thank a lot for all your support, yet i believe, this task is too ambitious for me at the moment.oO

cichlasoma.n: The DP command in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file will fire up DP.COM or DP.BAT. So what you do now, is altering that AUTOEXEC.BAT so that it reads "BASIC STUFF.BAS". Then in STUFF.BAS, you can type the program listing e.g. FiXato posted, the one with the POKE and which alters the CPU mode of the turboR as well. End that listing with _SYSTEM. Run it, and from there, just type DP or DP.COM.

There's nothing ambitious about this, it's just following the guide. In BASIC, your computer should say something about the BASIC version, Disk BASIC version, etc. and end with an "Ok" prompt. From there, just type the program listing:
1 DATA 3E,81 ,....
...
20 _SYSTEM("DP")
SAVE "STUFF.BAS"
RUN

Good luck in any case Wink

Oh, by the way, you should read the Wink in the listings as " ) (So that is a double quote followed by a closing bracket.) This website magically turns them into a winking smile whenever encountered.

the problem is with the _SYSTEM command in BASIC. it keeps returning "syntax error". BASIC in my MSX simply doesn´t accept a
_SYSTEM command followed by a file name in double quotes and brackets. oO

CALL SYSTEM accepts parameters only in MSX-DOS2

Argh, all that effort! Tongue

Anyway, I guess a proper word processor is hard to find on MSX. Unless of course, you'd get your hands on Tasword or Ted. But those are more like plain-text processors anyway and don't support automatic footnotes, nor headings. I did use Tasword in the old days though to hand in 'reports' while I was still in elementary school, and I believe I even did some when I was in high school.

i used tasword as well. on speccy. Smile
btw, how´d it be with collaboration between DP and Word? (DP supports a .doc format, yet i suppose, it´s another one...(?) )
