Description

MemoryDisk BASIC is a BASIC extension that uses a part of the MSX memory to create a RAM-Disk or Memory Disk. This disk is recognized as MEM: and is lost when you reboot or turn off the computer.

Firstly, these instructions appeared on a few Toshiba MSX1 machines: the HX-20 (all versions), HX-21, HX-22 (Japanese version), HX-31 and HX-32, then they were integrated in MSX-BASIC 2.0 except for CALL MEMOFF.

According the MSX-BASIC version of the computer, the size of the Memory Disk can differ. See CALL MEMINI for details.

Instructions

Both versions extend the 6 following instructions: CLOSE, LOAD, MERGE, OPEN, RUN and SAVE.

See below the new instructions.

Note: CALL can be replaced by the character underscore (_). A space is not required after this character. See CALL for more info.
