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.

On this page, you will find the instructions in alphabetical order, without being classified to their purpose. For a listing by function, see this page: Workmate BASIC
