Description

Workmate BASIC is provided with Workmate, a sector copying program for MSX2, created by the Sigma Group and released in 1989 by the Dutch company Checkmark. It was given as extra when you bought a Checkmark external RAM expansion.

You can enable it inside the application by pressing the F2 function key, you will then automatically leave the application and go to the MSX-BASIC screen. You can then remove the Workmate disk, enter CALL RESET and the new instructions will remain available.
