@gdx
Great! Thanks a lot.I have an issue with the file though:

I unpacked the files. The SLOT-E.BAS seems fine but the MEMMAN2.BAS seems corrupted. No neat basic lines but it starts with this:

ˇ7Än�è MSXMEM v2.03 - Aanvullingen door Olympiasoft PD�WÄx�¨AÚZ:Ω,,:≈:∞"GRP:"AS#�cÄÇ�ÜF1()�ÇÄå�:èÊ FUNCTIES SCHERM OPBOUW�

The whole file has those strange characters. Did I do something wrong?

The MEMMAN2.BAS is probably a "tokenized" BASIC file, those are not text files. MSX BASIC supports both ASCII and "tokenized" files (SAVE "TOTO.BAS",A saves to ASCII file and SAVE"TOTO.BAS" saves to a tokenized file).

Sometimes the ".ASC" extension is used for ASCII files.

Anyway, the important thing here is that the MEMMAN2.BAS file might work well on a real MSX machine or emulator even if you can't list/edit it on your PC/Mac.

Perfect Manuel, thanks.

Thanks Louthrax, that must be it. Now I remember that saving option. Used it myself many many years ago but forgot Smile

You can converted a "tokenized" program file to ASCII by saving with SAVE"NAME.BAS",A instruction. (using the option A)
A "tokenized" BASIC file will load faster than ASCII.
